AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift is going back to her country roots. After penning Little Big Town's hit track "Better Man", the songstress is now teaming up with country duo Sugarland for their new song "Babe". The song is included on the group's new album "Bigger".
The track finds the songstress harmonizing with Jennifer Nettles in the chorus part as Kristian Bush provides acoustic guitar melody. "You really blew this, babe/ We ain't getting through this one, babe/ How could you this babe," they sing. "I break down every time you call, this is the last time/ We're a wreck, you're wrecking this ball."
Besides lending her voice, Taylor wrote the song along with Patrick Monahan. The latter previously revealed that the song was originally going to be included on her fourth studio album "Red". He said of the 28-year-old singer, "She's very talented, she's a no-nonsense young kid. I'm not going through different relationship and breakups and all the stuff that young people do, so her perspective is very fresh."
Sugarland themselves opened up about their collaboration when they attended the ACM Awards on Sunday, April 15. "She was excited we were getting back together and reach out and said, 'Hey, I have a song,' " Jennifer said. "That is a short list, ladies and gentleman, of people to whom she has said, 'Hey, I have a song, you want to sing it?' So we said, 'Yeah!' "
Kristian added, "We've never really put a song by anyone else on our records so we weren't really used [to] sorting through that and we didn't want to mess it up, so we didn't tell anybody until we got it finished and she liked it. Thank God. Because it's a good song."
"Bigger", which was co-produced by Sugarland and Julian Raymond, is scheduled to hit the stores on June 8.
