Maren Morris was the latest surprise guest last night (June 3) at Taylor Swift‘s Eras tour stop at Chicago’s Soldier Field, when she appeared for the live debut of “You All Over Me” during the “surprise songs” portion of the show.
Both artists sang and played acoustic guitar on the track, which was originally included on the 2021’s Fearless (Taylor’s Version). Morris previously made a guest appearance during Swift’s Reputation Tour in 2018.
“Tonight I’m going to play a song I’ve never played live before. so that’s fun,” Swift said while introducing the song. She then revealed her thinking behind the process for re-recording and selecting the tracks that comprise the new versions of her earlier albums.
“When I was a teenager, that was when I decided it was really important for me to own my artwork and music,” she said. “So this is by definition a passion project [and] something an artist does because it’s personal to them.” She then thanked the crowd for supporting the re-record initiative from the very beginning. “It was the most generous, supportive thing ever, so thank you from the bottom of my heart forever for that,” Swift said.
She continued, “When I was re-recording Fearless, I thought it would be so cool to have one of my favorite artists sing on one of the songs, and we are so lucky, Chicago, because not only did that artist say yes to sing on the song, Maren Morris is here tonight.”
While onstage, Morris admitted that Fearless was one of her favorite albums and that it “was an honor to be on it.”
On Friday (June 2) at the first of the three Chicago gigs, Swift took a few minutes to celebrate Pride Month and talk about the “harmful pieces of legislation that have put people in the LGBTQ and queer community at risk.” She encouraged fans to research elected officials and take part in the voting process.
The Eras Tour continues in Chicago tonight and has so far featured surprise appearances from longtime collaborators Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, tour opener Phoebe Bridgers, Marcus Mumford, and Ice Spice, the latter of whom also guests on the remix of Swift’s latest single, “Karma.”
Swift announced an initial run of international Eras dates earlier this week.
