On Tuesday, the country singer-songwriter released his rendition of Swift’s steamy Lover standout “False God,” which Hurd recently covered throughout his recent Platonic Tour.

“Thank you @taylorswift13 for the song clinic. My favorite song off of Lover. We covered this live on Platonic, it felt like a deep dive into someone else’s poetry,” Hurd, 33, wrote on Twitter.
Swift, 30, was quick to offer her stamp of approval, replying, “Love this so much” alongside the praying hands emoji.
This, of course, isn’t the first time “To a T” singer Hurd has covered Swift: Last year, he covered her reputation track “Dress” on tour. And it appears Swift has been a longtime fan of Hurd and his wife, Maren Morris. Over the years, she’s included songs from both (Hurd’s “Love in a Bar” and Morris’ “Sugar”) on public playlists. And in 2018, invited Morris out onstage to sing her hit “The Middle” during a stop on her massive reputation stadium tour.

Before releasing music as an artist himself, Hurd got his start in Nashville as a songwriter, crafting tracks for Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley.
He’s been keeping busy. Last fall, he released his third EP, Platonic; he cowrote Lady Antebellum’s latest No. 1 hit “What If I Never Get Over You”; and in March, he and Morris welcomed their first child together, son Hayes Andrew.
