Taylor Swift Goes Back To Her Country Roots To Write Little Big Town's New Song

If you love the old Taylor, you'll probably love this.

Taylor Swift may not have released new music of her own this year, but it seems she’s been busier than we thought. 

On Tuesday, country band Little Big Town released the video for the first single off their upcoming album, “Better Man,” and lo and behold, it was written by none other than the “22” singer herself. Swift has been a fan of Little Big Down for a while — the group even performed with her during her 1989 tour

Swift confirmed the news on Instagram Tuesday, writing, “Feeling really honored that a band I’ve loved for so many years decided to record this song I wrote. Good luck at #cmaawards @littlebigtown!! Love you guys.” 

The song, which harks back to Swift’s “Teardrops on My Guitar” days, is about a woman who can’t seem to let go of a man who’s no good for her. It’s a far cry from the other track the pop star penned this year: ex Calvin Harris’ “This Is What You Came For.” 

“I wish it wasn’t 4 a.m. standing in the mirror / Saying to myself, you know you had to do it / I know the bravest thing I ever did was run,” frontwoman Karen Fairchild sings in “Better Man.” 

Check out the video above to hear the whole song, and just try not to picture the lyrics coming out of Swift’s mouth.
