Taylor Swift Broke Out Her Guitar to Sing "Betty" For the First Time at the ACM Awards

Taylor Swift brought "Betty" to the ACM Awards on Sept. 16, where she performed the track from her Folklore album for the very first time. After the singer showed up to the Grand Ole Opry in her head-to-toe Stella McCartney outfit, she took the main stage with guitar in hand to strum out the hit song — a moment that feels especially nostalgic, like her early country days.

This appearance marks Swift's big return to the ACMs after a seven-year hiatus. She last attended the show in 2013 for a performance of "Highway Don't Care" with Tim McGraw and Keith Urban. Swift must know we missed her! Her song choice is especially sweet, since the lyrics are a nod to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds's daughters: James, Inez, and Betty. We love a subtle friendship moment. Watch the video below to see Swift's highly anticipated ACM performance.
