Taylor Swift Covers ‘Swing Swing’ by the All-American Rejects
Taylor Swift continued her covers tradition in Tulsa, Okla. on Wednesday when she performed a rendition of the All-American Rejects' 'Swing Swing' during her Speak Now tour.
The country star wore her now-famous lilac dress during the acoustic performance, however, only a portion of the audience was singing along. Despite being the hit debut single from the Stillwater natives, the tune was released nine years ago when T-Swift fans were presumably too young to care.
Still, the 21-year-old put her own unique spin on the pop-rock track, turning it into a pining love song that fit perfectly in her set. Swift then segued right into 'You Belong With Me' at the end of her AAR homage, but that wasn't the only exciting moment of the night. A couple got engaged during her performance of 'Enchanted.'
Swift tweeted, "Tonight in Tulsa, (guitarist) Paul Sidoti and (bassist) Amos J. Heller saw a guy in the crowd propose to his girlfriend during Enchanted! Love!!"
'Swing Swing' is just the latest in the growing list of covers performed by the country star. She has paid respects to the likes of Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Eminem and more, even inviting some of the actual artists to join her on stage as a special treat for her fans.
Swift will be releasing 'Speak Now World Tour Live,' her first live CD/DVD combo on Nov. 21. It will include all 17 songs from the singer's tour set, and feature bonus footage from her time on the road.
