Little Big Town's new single, 'Better Man,' was written by Taylor Swift

Apparently Taylor Swift isn't done with writing country tunes.

On Tuesday, country group Little Big Town revealed that the pop star wrote their new single, Better Man, during a Facebook Live Q&A at The Mother Church in Nashville.

"We've been telling you guys... that there was a young girl in Nashville that wrote it by herself, and it's Taylor Swift. She sent us this song, and it was one that was really special to her and she thought of us because of the harmonies," said vocalist Karen Fairchild. "The moment that we heard it, we were like, 'Man, that is a song that we're gonna cut... The only reason we didn't say (she wrote it) is because we wanted you to hear the song for what it's worth."

According to Fairchild, that's the first time the pop star pitched a song to another artist. Songwriter Swift tweeted that she was "really honored" to have Little Big Town record her track.

 

And Little Big Town tweeted back that they "love" Swift.

 

"We had known Taylor since she was in high school. She's a dear friend of ours," said guitarist Phillip Sweet.

According to Fairchild, the song is about "a lover (or) a parent that disappointed you, or a friend."

"The beauty of that storytelling is that we can all relate to being disappointed by someone (and) saying 'Enough is enough. This would've been amazing if you would've gotten your act together.' And that's kind of a fun song to sing."
