“Someone absolutely incredible is about to come out on this stage,” she told the crowd. “This is someone who has sold 20 million records but, more importantly, is an amazing human being.”
The pair performed a rendition of “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” before Urban soloed on another one of his tracks, “Somebody Like You.” Swift posted a black-and-white photo of her and Urban together during a sound check to commemorate the event.
Video of the both performances shot by fans in the audience was released online, and you can see the footage below.
In 2009, Swift opened for Urban on his Escape Together World Tour, which she referenced in his introduction during the concert. The two later re-teamed for Tim McGraw’s “Highway Don’t Care,” released in 2013.
“He’s been so wonderful to me,” Swift said on stage. “He’s one of the most talented people who has ever been born.”
