Will she be dancing in the front row? Taylor Swift might be making a surprise appearance at the 2016 Country Music Association Awards. A source tells Us Weekly that the 26-year-old singer might be performing at the Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, November 2. A second source adds that she’s currently in Nashville.
Swift attended the CMAs for the first time in 2007, months after dropping her self-titled debut album. A newcomer at the time, she won the New Artist award, previously known as the Horizon Award.
The “Style” singer was last nominated for a CMA in 2014 but lost to Miranda Lambert in the Female Vocalist of the Year category. She was previously nominated an astounding 25 times and has taken home 11 wins in total.
Swift, who has a home in Nashville, officially crossed over from country to pop with her fifth studio album, 1989. She promoted the record on a world tour and more recently cowrote “This Is What You Came For” with ex Calvin Harris.
Still, Swift appears to be getting back to her roots. On Tuesday, Little Big Town confirmed that she penned their breakup tune “Better Man.” Little Big Town is set to perform at the CMAs.
Swift, of course, is known for writing about her famous exes. Fans have been speculating whether the new song is about former flames Harris or Tom Hiddleston, among others.
“I know I’m probably better off on my own / Than lovin’ a man who didn’t know / What he had when he had it,” the lyrics read. “And I see the permanent damage you did to me / Never again, I just wish I could forget when it was magic / I wish it wasn’t 4am, standing in the mirror / Saying to myself, you know you had to do it / I know the bravest thing I ever did was run.”
The 2016 CMAs air live on ABC on Wednesday, November 2, at 8 p.m. ET.
