Just before Christmas, singer-songwriters Louisa Wendorff and Devin Dawson created a mash-up of Style and Blank Space, giving the two songs an acoustic Nashville twang and a clever "he said / she said" dynamic.
The video languished on YouTube for a couple of days, until T-Swift herself spotted it and tweeted this.
The clip has since surpassed a million views and Louisa's current EP is shooting up the iTunes singer/songwriter charts. The singer is, understandably, freaking out.

But she deserves the attention -- check out her YouTube channel to hear a singer with a talent for spotting unlikely connections between songs (her dual cover of Beyonce's Pretty Hurts and Colbie Caillat's Try is a superb example of combining two complimentary lyrics to create something devastatingly effective).
Check out the Taylor Swift cover below... It's rather special.
