The award-winning singer brought the Mumford and Sons singer for a special rendition of her Cowboy Like Me, a track on her 2020 album evermore.

Spilling A Huge Serious

The Anti-hero singer even made the moment more special when she revealed that Mumford lent her his home in 2020 during the pandemic to record Evermore.

"I could not find a studio, essentially, and so Aaron was like, 'OK, let me call around and see if there's anyone who's cool and nice and generous and might be willing to offer up their home studio -- if you do the right amount of testing, you're totally locked down, you're fully quarantined, So I was like Please, I really hope somebody comes through. And so he calls me up and he's like, I have really, really good news. Marcus Mumford said that you could record at his home studio.'"

The singer further revealed that about six of the songs on Evermore album came from "driving six hours out into the country, past thousands of beautiful sheep, to Marcus Mumford's beautiful house where he has a studio. So, i got to do this."

Taylor Was Hesitant At First

The songwriter confirmed it was there they hopped on Cowboy Like Me and she was reluctant to ask for his contribution to the album

"I didn't want to be weird about it. So, I was like, I wonder if he'll wander in. If fate will have him wander into the studio at the right time, so, sure enough, we're recording a song and he wanders in at the perfect time, and just kind of started humming a harmony, and I sort of turned to him as if I hadn't been thinking of it the whole time."

Asking The Big Question

That encounter was the perfect opportunity for Swift to ask for his contribution to the track.

"I turned to him, and I was like, 'Oh, you sound really good on that harmony, wonder if maybe, you might sing on this song? And he was like, 'Yup, would love to."
