Taylor Swift may be ruling the pop charts now instead of country radio, but she’s still country enough to pen “Better Man,” a song that Little Big Town recorded for their upcoming record, The Breaker. The tune, which Taylor wrote by herself, is currently No. 4 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
At the DirectTV Now Super Saturday Night concert on Feb. 4 at Club Nomadic in Houston, Taylor performed “Better Man” for the first time in concert.
“I never really knew what it would feel like to hear my song on the radio and have someone else singing it,” said Taylor before forming a makeshift quartet with three of her backup dancers to tackle the tune. “Turns out, it feels awesome. I feel really grateful to the artists who have decided to record the things that I have written. The one drawback is just that you don’t really get to hear the crowd sing the songs back to you.”
