Believe it or not, there are still celebrities out there that haven’t yet graced Taylor Swift‘s 1989 stage. Even legendary rocker Steven Tyler didn’t want to miss out on the experience.

The Aerosmith singer joined Swift onstage at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday to duet on his 1998 song “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” in front of a backdrop of spraying gold fireworks.

The 67-year-old singer, who was wearing one of his typical boho stage ensembles for the performance, took to Twitter to thank Swift for their Bridgestone Arena exploits.

“HOLY SWIFT!!! @TAYLORSWIFT13 …SHINED SO HOT N BRIGHT SHE MADE THE SUN JEALOUS,” he wrote. “THANKS FOR THE FUN.”

Tyler also re-shared a 2012 tweet by Swift in which she expressed her appreciation for the Armageddon tune.

“EPIC SHOW,” he wrote in response.

Swift posted a snippet of the performance for fans on Twitter.

“Singing ‘I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing’ with @IamStevenT was an honor,” the 25-year-old pop star wrote. “So inspired by how sweet he was to all of us.”

The “Wildest Dreams” singer also shared a photo from the performance on Instagram, adding, “magical things going down on this tour.”

Swift, who’s at home in the Tennessee city, also embraced her country roots with singers Alison Krauss and Kelsea Ballerini.

Ballerini sang her debut single “Love Me Like You Mean It” and Krauss played a cover of her tune “When You Say Nothing at All.”
