Playing Little Big Town Helps Taylor Swift Return to the Country Charts

Taylor Swift is back on the country charts!

The "Blank Space" singer was revealed to be the mystery writer on Little Big Town's latest single, "Better Man," last week, helping fuel a surge in sales that saw T. Swift place in the top 10 country music charts for the 20th time as a writer -- but the first time since March 2013, according to Billboard.

On the back of the news of Tay-Tay's involvement, as well as the recent Group of the Year win at the CMAs for Little Big Town, sales of "Better Man" surged 138 percent, helping send the single high in the charts.

The last time the 26-year-old pop star was in such a position in the country charts was for her 10-week number one, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." 

The collaboration also helps explain Swift's recent surprise appearance at the CMAs, which saw her party with Little Big Town as well as "Ex's & Oh's" singer Elle King.
