Little Big Town gives a huge shoutout to Taylor Swift.

Here’s a fun fact for you about Little Big Town’s smash hit “Better Man”— it was written by former country music darling, Taylor Swift!

The dynamic pop crossover artist envisioned having a hearty harmony for the tune and contacted the country quartet to ask their opinion of her new piece. The song fit in perfectly with their upcoming project at the time, The Breaker album. Though Taylor was not involved in the actual recording of “Better Man,” the band kept her involved in the production of her creation.

Little Big Town recently sat down with Radio.com to talk about their collaboration with T-Swift and what went on behind the scenes. Watch their talk below:

“Better Man” is featured on Little Big Town’s most recent album The Breaker, which was released on February 14, 2017. The song has enjoyed immense success since its release, peaking at No.1 on Billboard’s Country Music charts and at no. 34 on the Hot 100 chart.

 

“Better Man” Lyrics

I know I’m probably better off on my own
Than loving a man who
Didn’t know what he had when he had it
And I see the permanent damage you did to me
Never again, I just
Wish I could forget when it was magic

I wish it wasn’t 4 AM, standing in the mirror
Saying to myself, you know you had to do it
I know, the bravest thing I ever did was
Run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man

I know I’m probably better off all alone
Than needing a man who could
Change his mind at any given minute
And it’s always on your terms
I’m hanging on every careless word
Hoping it might turn sweet again
Like it was in the beginning

But your jealousy, I can hear it now
You’re talking down to me like I’ll always be around
You push my love away like it’s some kind of loaded gun
Boy, you never thought I’d run

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
But I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man
A better man
Better man

I hold onto this pride because these days it’s all I have
And I gave to you my best and we both know you can’t say that
You can’t say that

I wish you were a better man
I wonder what we would’ve become
If you were a better man
We might still be in love
If you were a better man
You would’ve been the one
If you were a better man
Yeah, yeah

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, I can feel you again
And I just miss you when I just wish you were a better man
And I know why we had to say goodbye like the back of my hand
And I just miss you, and I just wish you were a better man

We might still be in love if you were a better man
Better man
