Sure, Taylor Swift is a decent singer. But really, shouldn’t it be you up there on that stage?

An upcoming iPhone app won’t let you take over for the country superstar on tour, but will allow you to lead her band in renditions of her songs. Called Mix Me In2 Taylor Swift, the $3 app comes pre-loaded with two tunes, “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me,” and lets you silence Swift’s vocals and record your own on top of the full band, according to The New York Times.

Swift, 20, will unveil the app herself this Sunday in Nashville, the same day as her planned 13-hour meet and greet with fans.

The app breaks the songs down into separate instrument tracks, too. So, with the right cable, you can accompany Swift on guitar if you’d prefer. More Swift songs will become available after the app officially launches June 20.

And who knows, Swift might even hear your versions. After recording them, there’ll be an option for you to upload them directly to her website. Surely she’ll make room for you as a backup singer, at least.
