Hello Taylor Nation,

Here at the Swift Agency, still a guy who… never mind. I just managed to see the music video for I Knew You Were Trouble that premiered today, December 13, on MTV.

The Fearless One has come full circle. According to Country Music Is Love, newly signed Big Machine recording artist Tim McGraw has released the track list of his upcoming album Two Lanes of Freedom. On the thirteen spot, Tim is joined by good friends Taylor Swift and Keith Urban to sing Highway Don’t Care. A very meta move that will more than likely guarantee a duet (or a trio) performance live at some concert. We wouldn’t mind it that happens next September at the RED Tour concert in Nashville. Just saying. But if that happens, I totally called it.

MTV, a Viacom company, will propagate the IKYWT video across all its partner networks but otherwise hold a monopoly on it for a while longer. That means, MTV Networks (which includes CMT) will be the only place to see it momentarily. Hopefully a little later tonight it will be released on VEVO / YouTube and we can share it with you. In the meantime, this is as best as I can do.

Thanks to Pablo Kutavyz for posting. Swifties can see the official MTV video here.

The German TV show Schlag den Raab will have the Princess in Red as their musical guest this week, December 15. I don’t know whether this is a live performance or a recorded one.

  1. I hope you’ve seen the full version by now — the one with her voice over in the beginning and at the end. it MAKES the video. the one posted on here doesn’t have it. GAHHHHHH I love taylor! ❤ thanks for the best tay blog ever, by the way! like ever 😀

    1. Actually, it’s not that I can’t find the video… but that I can’t embed MTV videos here, so I had to wait for YT

      1. It looks like in my eagerness to help you out I totally overlooked all the red links to MTV in your post, so that one is on me 🙂 I should know better than to second-guess you, you’re one of the most thorough TS bloggers out there! So, I’ll go and sit in my corner and think about what I did and never ever underestimate the ninjas again cause the Atlantic isn’t all that big for them to cross… :p But I will still help you out if you should really need it, though 🙂
