Keith Urban's Cover of "Lover" by Taylor Swift

Keith Urban Covered Taylor Swift's 'Lover' and We Can't Stop Listening to It

Keith Urban just blessed us with a cover of Taylor Swift's "Lover," and now we won't rest until the two talented artists team up for a duet. On Sept. 1, Urban melted hearts when he crooned Swift's hit single at the Washington State Fair — without rehearsing, might I add. His smooth-as-melted-butter vocals added a subtle country twist to the pop hit song as he strummed the electric guitar and his band played in the background.

While sharing a snippet of his performance on Twitter, the 51-year-old artist wrote, "Every now and then you hear a song that you love and wish you'd written . . . and a HUGE thx to my band as well- we didn't get to rehearse so . . . this is us fully winging it." Just a few hours later, Swift herself caught wind of the beautiful cover, which she reposted on Twitter, writing, "MY HEART EXPLODED INTO CONFETTI HEARTS THANK YOU."

This isn't the first time Urban has expressed his deep admiration for "Lover." Back in August when Swift first released the single, Urban tweeted, "Huge shoutout today to @taylorswift13 on the SUPERB new single LOVER. When a song so exquisitely written becomes a record so gorgeously crafted I feel such a deep sense of gratitude for the 'art' of making music." We stan two musical gods fangirling over one another!
