I don’t care if you’re not a Taylor Swift stan. I don’t care if you’re not a Keith Urban stan. I don’t care if you don’t like country music at all. You HAVE to watch this cover.
Because holy guacamole, it’s a religious experience.
At his Washing State Fair show on Saturday, Urban casually busted out an impromptu cover of Taylor Swift’s title single from her new album ‘Lover’. And, though it took fans a hot minute to register what was happening, they were quick to get on board with the cover.
“…. this is us fully winging it”. Get out of town. I wish everything I tried to wing went that smoothly.
FYI, I strongly relate to one woman’s ear-splitting scream at the beginning. I feel you girl, you scream for my heart.
After posting the video snippet to his social media sites, Taylor was quick to react on Twitter, and basically sums up hers and country stans’ feelings.
MY HEART EXPLODED INTO CONFETTI HEARTS THANK YOU 🙏 💕💕💕😭 https://t.co/N7fUelR7cU

Me too, Taylor, me too.
And everyone was getting around it, sending heart-eye emoji’s flying left, right, and centre from the venue to those who are hungry for more than this juicy morsel.
Wait I need a full version of this!! 😍 https://t.co/eJen16qj62

And, tbh, if these two don’t make their way to a recording studio ASAP and pump out a quick duet of this, we will riot. I reckon we’ve got ourselves a serious competitor for Ed Sheeran x Beyonce’s ‘Perfect’ duet (which was cute, I guess).
I demand the organisers of the Country Music Awards book these two yesterday. Giddy up, folks.
When the hell is the duet going to happen?! https://t.co/QtIw3wdZnf

That is all from me, thank you for coming to my TED talk.
If you need me, I’ll be listening to Taylor and Keith’s entire catalogues dreaming of a world where ‘Lover (feat Keith Urban)’ is a reality. Who wants to start the GoFundMe?
