Taylor Swift Sings Along with Keith Urban and John Mayer – in the Audience!
The country star surprised audience members at a taping of CMT's Crossroads in Nashville
First dinner – then a concert!
Days after sharing a meal with John Mayer and friends in Nashville, Taylor Swift showed her support for her rocker pal at a taping of CMT’s Crossroads special with Keith Urban Tuesday night. The country star and her mom were seated in the fifth row, and were spotted dancing and singing along while the singers shared the stage.
Audience members took to Twitter following the show – clearly captivated by the superstar in the audience. One concertgoer wrote, Swift was “cute as can be. She sang along to every word of every song.”
Nashville radio station 107.5 WRVW-FM reported that Swift, who recently told Rolling Stone that Urban and Mayer were musical influences, was ushered to her seat just before the show began and ducked backstage during intermission.

And Swift wasn’t the only famous face in the audience: Jake Owen, Kix Brooks and American Idol‘s Kara DioGuardi caught the show too.
Meanwhile, Mayer took to his official Twitter to recap the evening. The singer wrote that he had “an incredible night with @keithurban,” and marveled at the Aussie’s guitar skills, joking, “You re not just a pretty face!” For his part, Urban raved about the experience on his own Twitter account Wednesday, writing, “What a fantastic experience. I couldn’t have asked for a better show.”
A Mayer fan site reports that the show didn’t skimp on the hits, including Mayer’s “Gravity” and “Say” and Urban’s “Sweet Thing” and “Tonight I Wanna Cry.” During technical breaks, the two played impromptu snippets of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and Henry Mancini’s Pink Panther theme. They finished with a rocking rendition of George Michael’s “Faith.”
The Crossroads special will air on CMT later this year.
