Taylor Swift was super excited to appear on stage for the first night of her Speak Now tour, but the singer has something written along her entire arm. It turns out that the words were lyrics from 'Keep Your Head Up,' a song by one of the country star's favorite artists, Andy Grammer.

"Well, good evening, Omaha, Nebraska," she said to the audience when she first stepped on stage. "I'm Taylor and welcome to the first night of the Speak Now World Tour."
The words on the 21-year-old's left arm read: "You gotta keep your head up but you can let your hair down." The line is from the chorus of the singer-songwriter's upbeat tune, which is featured on his just-released self-titled EP.

On Taylor's right hand was the singer's lucky number 13, but she didn't need any luck in Omaha. The crowd ate up her two-hour set, which included plenty of 'Speak Now' tracks like 'Sparks Fly,' 'Mine' and 'Mean.'

The production included nine musicians, eight dancers, and elaborate sets to help create visuals like a wedding during 'Speak Now' and a winter landscape during 'Back to December.'

"It's very theatrical," she told People about the production of her tour. "[It's] all about portraying songs like I see them in my head. With all the pyro and lighting I've always wanted on tour, it's like a dream come true."
