Taylor Swift may have gone pop, but she still loves country. So much so, she invited Little Big Town to her 1989 tour stop in Pittsburgh. The group surprised the crowd with a rendition of “Pontoon.”

When Taylor Swift told the world she was leaving country music to make her pop album “1989” I had high hopes that she would one day return to where she started it all.  I assumed there was no way she would leave us country music fans high and dry. Unfortunately, it looks as if she has went full circle with pop music.

Taylor launched her “1989 World Tour” Wednesday night in Bossier City, La. and USA Today reports Taylor performed just one full song from her first three country albums.  “Love Story” which was given a “synth-pop makeover according to the report.

Curious to see if Taylor brings a little more country to the show when the tour comes to Nashville this fall (Sept. 25-26).

Tim McGraw doesn’t think Taylor Swift gets enough credit.

Tim has praised the former country music hitmaker for her “incredible” songwriting abilities and believes she’s one of a kind. He told PEOPLE magazine:

“Taylor Swift is one of the biggest artists in the world. She’s a very very talented artist.  And the thing I love about Taylor as much as anything is she’s an incredible songwriter and sometimes people don’t give her enough credit for her great talent as a songwriter. I think she’s one of those rare artists that come along once in a decade or so, that has as much talent.”

Meanwhile, earlier this month, the 25-year-old singer was presented with an honour at the Academy of Country Music Awards.  Taylor’s mother Andrea Finlay – who was recently diagnosed with cancer – was on hand to present the award to her daughter.

Introducing Taylor, she said:

“I’ve watched this milestone artist from the time she was a tangled hair little girl growing up on our farm, full of imagination and creativity. And ever since then, her favourite thing in the world to do has been to write a song, tell a story, play a guitar, or a piano. And I’ve seen those things carry her through every emotion, every experience in her life. Good or bad.  I’d like to thank the ACMs for honouring her in this way. But I’d also like to thank the entire music community for taking such good care of her. And [to] the fans, I know you love her as I love her, And for that I thank you eternally. I am a very proud mom.”
