Looks like Taylor Swift is headlining a big show before the big game!
As part of a multi-year deal with AT&T, the 1989 singer will perform DIRECTV's Super Saturday Night in Houston, Texas, the night before Super Bowl LI in February 2017.
"Thanks @ATT, this is gonna be fun," the 26-year-old artist tweeted on Tuesday.
"We’re thrilled to reach a deal to bring Taylor and her unique talents to her fans and our customers in new and exclusive ways," AT&T Entertainment Group CEO John Stankey said in a statement. "And we’ve thrilled attendees during the Big Game weekend for the last 11 years with A-list parties and the hottest performing music artists around, so 2017 will be our very best."
Additionally, AT&T calls the event "one of many opportunities AT&T and Taylor Swift will team up for in the coming months."
Meanwhile, concert duties during the big game will be handled by Lady Gaga, who was recently announced as the headliner for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show.
"It's a done deal! I can't wait to rock for YOU from Houston!" Gaga shared on Instagram last Friday.

So whichever teams are playing in Houston, at least we know the music is covered!
