Taylor Swift may be the queen of the pop charts, but that doesn’t mean she’s forgotten her country roots. When country superstar Tim McGraw began looking for a female vocalist to sing the hook in his new track Highway Don’t Care, only one name came to mind – Taylor Swift.
Seven years after releasing her self-titled debut album, which feature the song Tim McGraw, Swift has now teamed up with one of her favourite musicians to record the heartfelt love song. Joined by Keith Urban on the guitar, the Highway Don’t Care packs huge star power with the three artists and is sure to rule both the country and pop stations.
Labelmates McGraw and Swift appear separately in the video, with Swift performing her parts in a sunlit room with a make-up free look to match her flowing peach dress. McGraw performs his verses on a deserted road, while scenes from the video’s story line cut in-between. The video’s main focus is on a woman who gets into a car accident, showing the perils of driving and texting. McGraw’s role in her life is a bit of a surprise when finally revealed at the end of the video.
The trio first performed Highway Don’t Care in April during the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards. The song is McGraw’s third single from his astonishing 12th studio album, Two Lanes of Freedom, which was released earlier this year.
