Performing at the Grammys is a dream for many, however I doubt Butch Walker expected his cover of Taylor Swifts hit tune “You Belong With Me” to land him a spot alongside the songstress at this years event.
It seems that back in November, Butch, who was originally in the rock band Marvelous 3, decided to record a cover version of the hit song after asking his Twitter fans for suggestions.
The musician then created a “making of” video — complete with pee breaks and subtitles — which became such a huge hit that in a just two days Taylor Swift caught wind of the cover and tweeted enthusiastically, “@butchwalker covered You Belong With Me and I’m losing my MIND listening to it! Blown away.”
This just goes to show the extent of social media’s ability to both bring people together and to foster creativity.
