“Huge shoutout today to @taylorswift13 on the SUPERB new single LOVER,” Urban tweeted on Saturday (Aug. 17). “When a song so exquisitely written becomes a record so gorgeously crafted I feel such a deep sense of gratitude for the ‘art’ of making music.”
Swift’s reaction was not chill: “ARE YOU KIDDING ME THIS IS THE NICEST THING ANYONE HAS EVER SAID – you’re just the best and so kind to say this,” she wrote back.
Swift and Urban’s mutual respect runs deep. Back in 2009, Swift was opening for Urban on his Escape Together World Tour. On her 1989 World Tour in 2015, Swift invited the country star to the stage as a guest performer.
