Taylor Swift Wraps “Reputation” Tour With Maren Morris & Sugarland
Taylor Swift wrapped the U.S. leg of her “Reputation” stadium tour in Arlington, Texas this weekend and treated fans to two very special guests.
During Friday night’s show, Taylor brought out Maren Morris to perform her Zedd collaboration “The Middle,” noting, “I get to bring out somebody who I am – I think I can safely categorize myself as a superfan of this artist. I listen to [Morris’ 'Hero' album] over and over and over, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.”
Then on Saturday, Taylor brought out Sugarland, and they performed the duo's latest single “Babe,” which Taylor wrote and also sings backup on. This is the first time the two acts performed the song together live.
