The country crooner covered the track during a recent stop at the Washington State Fair.
“Every now and then you hear a song that you love and wish you’d written…. and a HUGE thx to my band as well- we didn’t get to rehearse so…. this is us fully winging it – KU,” he wrote with a video of his performance.
Swift, who opened for Urban on his Escape Together World Tour in 2009, was excited to share the clip to her legions of fans.
“MY HEART EXPLODED INTO CONFETTI HEARTS THANK YOU,” she tweeted with a slew of heart emojis. She also shared a video to her Instagram story, adding “Keith Urban covering Lover flawlessly. I am screaming. This is so beautiful.”
The track is one of the lead singles from Swift’s seventh studio album. The project is incredibly special to the former country princess as it’s the first record she’s owned.
“It’s the first one that I will own of my work,” she recently told Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts. “My contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again, so I’m very excited about it. I just think that artists deserve to own their work. I just feel very passionately about that.”
Urban has a slew of tour dates around the world during the remainder of the year. Swift has not yet announced plans around the touring of Lover.
