The Two Singers Performed Together in 2013
Bryan’s comments about Swift might make you wish the two singers had found a way to perform together during their time in Las Vegas. However, the pair already took the stage together way back in 2013.
While performing a show on her Red Tour in Nashville, Swift welcomed Bryan to the stage with her. The pair sang a duet of Bryan’s song “I Don’t Want This Night to End,” from his third studio album Tailgates & Tanlines.
Swift has dates lined up on the North American leg of her Eras Tour into August of this year. Meanwhile, Bryan is gearing up for his Country On Tour, which kicks off in June.
