Tay appeared in a yellow dress, joking with the crowd before her performance about contemplating wearing a Civil Wars band T-shirt on stage. "This is SO sold out," she added while looking out into the audience. The 22-year-old then focused on her rendition of the song with the duo, nailing her vocals completely.
Later, the Civil Wars tweeted: "An unforgettable night @TheRyman. Thanks to @taylorswift13 for debuting "'Safe & Sound' with us, and thanks to all of YOU for being there."
Check out Taylor and the Civil Wars' performance below, and get psyched for 'The Hunger Games' to be released on March 23.
