Surrounded by friends and loved ones, including celebrity pals Hayley Williams of Paramore and Victoria's Secret stunner Lily Aldridge, Anderson got her biggest gift from Swift.

"One thing that I think it's really important that you know, if you don't already know this — a lot of you probably know this — her favorite all-time band in high school and still is Dashboard Confessional," Swift said of the birthday girl.

"I'm just asking a random question, do we have anyone here named Chris Carrabba," the country-turned-pop star continued, naming the lead singer of the "Screaming Infidelities" band. "Is there a Chris Carrabba? Is there? Is there a Chris Carrabba?"

Much to Anderson's delight, Carrabba, 39, then emerged from the crowd for a birthday serenade. Whipping out a guitar, the musician performed Dashboard's 2003 single "Hands Down" as Swift and Abigail sung along, embracing as they grooved to the music.
