Taylor Swift returned to her country roots during a surprise appearance at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Cafe.

Swift joined songwriter Craig Wiseman on stage Saturday night. She received a standing ovation from the roughly 40 patrons.

Swift grabbed an acoustic guitar and played her pop hit “Shake It Off” before performing “Love Story” and “Better Man,” which won a Grammy Award for the best country duo or group performance for Little Big Town.

Wiseman and Swift have known each other since meeting at a charity show when she was a teenager.
