#HBLnewsbrief - Taylor Swift Did Shots Of Whiskey At The Blue Bird Cafe!

posted by Brian Taylor -

TAYLOR SWIFT returned to her roots on Saturday.  She  made a surprise appearance at the Bluebird Café in Nashville.  It'll be  part of a documentary they're doing in honor of the club's 35th  anniversary.

She was brought on stage by a guy named Craig Wiseman.  He's a songwriter who's written hits for Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw.  He and Taylor wrote together back when she was 17 years old.

She told a great story about a song she was working on back then, and  asked him to finish it with her. But he "didn't get it" so they wrote  something else. 

She said, quote, "I couldn't stop thinking about the idea.  I thought  there was something to it.  I really liked it.  [So], this is the song I  almost wrote with Craig Wiseman.  It's called 'Love Story'."  

(Smart move, dude.  It's sold over eight million copies.)

Another great moment was when they talked about drinking Fireball Whisky  at a CMT after-party back in the day.  And then on cue, Wiseman took  out some mini bottles of Fireball and they both did shots. 

  

  

 (Here's a clip of Taylor doing "Shake It Off".)

(And here's one of her singing "Better Man".  It cuts off abruptly at 1:33.  And here are side-by-side photos of Taylor at the Bluebird in 2004 and on Saturday.)
