GAYLE is only one week away from opening for Taylor Swift‘s The Eras Tour, and in a new interview, the singer-songwriter opened up about just how much the superstar’s invitation to hitch her on tour meant.

And the truth that she will be able to take a look at me in Nashville and simply be like, ‘You, come with me.’
“It just means the world to me and it just was really validating for me, and especially at a very overwhelming time,” she continued. “I had no clue what I was going to do this year. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I had the best year of my life. What am I going to do next year?’ And she was like, ‘Here’s something to add to your calendar.’”
Memorably, GAYLE first crossed paths along with her new tourmate on the Nashville Songwriter Awards final September, the place she took the stage to carry out her breakout hit “abcdefu.” Swift, in the meantime, was honored on the ceremony because the NSAI Skilled Songwriter Members’ Songwriter-Artist of the Decade.
