On July 19, Swift continued her tradition of bringing out special guests during her massive stadium concerts. This time, she recruited one of country’s most popular newcomers to join her onstage.
“Before I bring your surprise performer out,” Swift said to the crowd, “I want you to take this into account: Anyone that you see on this stage is here absolutely for free, out of the kindness and goodness of their heart, because they love you and wanted to surprise you. If you’re thinking about screaming a medium amount when this performer comes out, I think you want to really consider, and upgrade into, like, a psychotic scream.”
Moments later, the stadium was indeed filled with screams as Hunt appeared on a park bench in the center of the stage. Swift joined in on harmonies for Hunt’s hit single, “Take Your Time”, which was a clear hit with the audience.
Hunt is the latest country act to join Swift onstage during her current world tour. Little Big Town joined the superstar for a special performance of “Pontoon” during her tour stop in Pittsburgh in June.
Sam Hunt is currently on the road with Lady Antebellum for its Wheels Up 2015 Tour, which is hitting cities across the country through the end of September. A list of upcoming tour dates is available at his official website.
