Taylor Swift performs hits, shoots whiskey at surprise Bluebird Cafe performance

We all know that after the Calvin Harris/Kim Kardashian/Kanye West debacle, Taylor recoiled into hiding and hasn't been seen much since.

One of the biggest musical stars in the world dropped in Saturday night at Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe, shocking an intimate crowd of 40 as she joined country songwriter Craig Wiseman on stage for a surprise acoustic performance.

Better Man is the No. 1 hit country song Swift wrote for band, Little Big Town.

She may have done her time on the Disney Channel, but that's as close as 26-year-old Angeleno Hayley Kiyoko likes to hew to the standard pop backstory.

Although Swift hasn't yet let fans into her private life with Alwyn, she has reportedly been inspired to write a number of tracks about their romance, including "Gorgeous" and "Call It What You Want".

Wiseman and Swift have known each other since meeting at a charity show when she was a teenager.

Swift laughed and said that she and friend Ed Sheeran stole Wiseman's large, inflatable bottle of Fireball that was standing in the corner. Wiseman and Taylor Swift did a few shots of whiskey in between songs.

She added: "I'm not over-sexualizing my music".

In the Refinery29 interview, Kiyoko had said: "I think no matter who you are or what you look like, you just wanna be a person, right?".

Kiyoko who recently came out, opened up in an interview with Refinery 29 where she spoke about her frustrations with the music industry. The Bluebird Cafe is particularly sentimental for Swift - Big Machine Label Group's Scott Borchetta saw Swift play the room when she was an 8th grader and offered her a publishing deal.

The $20 concert marked a return to where Swift's career began.

The performance was filmed as part of a documentary honoring the cafe's 35th anniversary. These days Swift's country performances are nearly as rare as her club shows.
