Taylor Swift Returns to Country Music with Sugarland Collab, "Babe"

Taylor Swift Returns To Country Music On Sugarland's 'Babe' – Listen

Hear Taylor Swift Sing On 'Babe,' Country Duo Sugarland's New Breakup Anthem That She Co-Wrote

"We've never put someone else's song on a Sugarland record, but we were immediately interested in "Babe" the first time we heard it!" states Jennifer Nettles.

The breakup tune chides a cheating lover for ruining a relationship, as Jennifer and Taylor sing, "We said no one else/How could you do this, babe?/You really blew this, babe/We ain't getting through this one, babe/This is the last time I'll ever call you, babe".

"Hey guys just wanted to say thanks for all the nice things you are saying about "Babe.' It's a song that I wrote with Pat Monahan [Train] when I was making the 'Red" album", the 28-year-old pop singer shared in a video posted on Instagram Friday. Perhaps we weren't quite ready to let her go just yet back then. but Swift found a spot on the country charts even more recently, with a track from her second pop project, 2017's Reputation.

Russia Demands Compensation for US Tariffs on Aluminum, Steel
Apart from Russia, China, India and the European Union have already described the US tariffs as " safeguards ". Indias move assumes significance as the country has urged the U.S. to give exemption from the tariff hikes.

Swift not only helped write it though, she also performs vocals in it. "She said 'Hey, I have a song...' and we said 'Yep!'" Nettles told reporters backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, according to People. "New Year's Day" charted at No. 41 on the Country Airplay chart, and landed at No. 33 on the Hot Country Songs chart. She followed the same strategy for her latest album, Reputation, released in November 2017, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. "We've obviously known each other for many years when she was just getting started". She released her first single, Tim McGraw, in 2006, selling 2.5 million copies. The total box office revenue from Taylor's four tours is over $400 million.

Taylor Swift may not be singing country music anymore, but she certainly hasn't left the genre or her career roots in Nashville behind all together. [MUSIC] Coinage. Life, well spent.
