One of the biggest musical stars in the world dropped in Saturday night at Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe, shocking an intimate crowd of 40 as she joined country songwriter Craig Wiseman on stage for a surprise acoustic performance. The Bluebird is a Nashville institution, offering up regular performances from working musicians and songwriters responsible for many of country's -- and pop music's -- greatest hits.

"When I would play writers nights ... I didn't have the experience of a writer writing something and then it going out into the world and you hearing it from someone else's perspective until recently," Swift said, according to The Tennessean, referring to "Better Man." "Little Big Town gave me the opportunity to feel that way ... to be at the Bluebird and play a song you've maybe heard on the radio. I will always be forever grateful to them for that."
Her final performance was of a song that Wiseman sheepishly admitted he didn't quite "get" when Swift first began writing it as a 17-year-old just starting out.
"This is the song I almost wrote with Craig Wiseman," Swift told the crowd. "It's called 'Love Story.'"
The song went on to go platinum -- eight times over.
The newspaper reports that Swift's performance was filmed for a documentary on the 35th anniversary of the legendary Bluebird Cafe. Swift is set to go on her worldwide "Reputation" tour.
