The two music stars have known each other for years. For those that don’t know, Taylor was an opening act on Keith‘s tour before she was doing her own headline shows!
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (April 15), Keith talked about what happened when he received those texts from Taylor.

Keith said, “We were in Australia. I was doing some Christmas shopping at the shopping mall in December, because everybody does their shopping right before Christmas — every guy does. So I’m at the shopping mall doing my Christmas shopping and I get a text from Taylor saying, ‘I’ve got these couple of songs I’d like you to sing on, do you want to hear them?’”
“I’m sitting in the foot court at the shopping center, listening to these two unreleased Taylor Swift songs,” Keith continued. “It was an unusual place to be hearing unreleased Taylor Swift songs. But I loved the songs, and luckily got to put a vocal on both of those.”
