Taylor Swift's return to the ACM Awards stage was worth the wait. The nine-time ACM Award-winner gave her world premiere performance off her record-breaking new album Folklore on Wednesday, as she performed "Betty" at the awards show.
The performance marked Swift's first at a country show in seven years, and she made her homecoming pretty sweet. Singing it out from the the Grand Ole Opry House -- one of three legendary Nashville venues being used as a home base for the ACM Awards this year -- Swift belted it out on stage, perched on a stool. She appeared solo, lit by spotlight in the dimmed room.
"I've always loved that in music you can kind of slip into different identities, and you can sing from other people's perspectives. So that's what I did on this one," Swift explained in a clip from Country Radio, before adding, "I named all the characters in this story after my friends' kids."
