Taylor Swift & Garrett Hedlund: Date Night?

Are Taylor Swift and Garrett Hedlund making sweet music together?

The 21-year-old country cutie and the Country Strong actor, 26, were spotted going out to dinner together on Friday (April 1) in Nashville, Tenn.

“It was their first time going out,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’ve been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together.”

“She has actually spent time getting to know Garrett,” the source added. “He’s cute — and he’s into country music! [She] likes that he’s a normal guy.”

FYI: Garrett is currently in Nashville recording a CD!

DO YOU THINK Taylor and Garrett make a cute couple?

    NO TAYLOR. WHY HIM? WHAT ABOUT CHORD? HE IS CUTE. I think it could just be a rumor.

  • delilah

    Maybe Gwyneth Paltrow “fixed her up” again. Don’t think Garrett’s into virgins, tho, so it’s just dinner.BTW: What ever happened to the budding romance with Chord Overstreet? LOLOLOLOLOLOL!
    Taylor and her PR are so fake! All this stuff is set up.

  • Dubya Bush

    Taylor dates A LOT! lol

  • Juliana

    Garrett is NOT recording a CD. Please leave his personal life alone.

  • Oye Vey

    I did not think Garrett Hedlund needed a beard…

  • nina

    she’s a year younger than me, has had more boyfriends than me and yet my relationships lasted longer than all of her “relationships” combined…

    Her famous friends and the media should stop blaming the guys she’s been with and realize that maybe she is the problem!

  • Friends?

    Ok for all of you going crazy going on a date with Garrett, Taylor stated last week in an interview and said she was single and happy. She also stated she enjoys being with friends who just so happen to be guys and she wasn’t going to let tabloids dictate her life. She has said she has been grouped with dudes that she hadn’t even dated before. Plus it’s US weekly. I have noticed that they do get a lot of stuff wrong.

  • Taylor

    Another rumour to add to the list. Garrett was in Nashville visiting friends and he definitely isn’t recording a CD. Just because they were seen in the same place doesn’t mean their dating. Also the information that was given by the so called insider doesn’t tally with the sightings tweeted on twitter. He can’t be in two places at once also Taylor went to Vegas either that night or the next day. To be honest I have never read just bullshit. If I didn’t know any better it’s probably the same person who started the Leighton and Rashida rumour. Yet again it one persons version of events and one persons sighting and why has it took 5 days to report this total crap. Everything about the details are just fiction. Barrette probably at home right now Laughing his arse off and enjoying the rumours.

  • dwalker

    Does this mean Garrett Hedlund is gay?

  • They are friends

    Calm down folks! I can see them totally being friends. They are both friends with Tim Mcgraw and Faith Hill. Garrett has stated that he wants to move to Nashville and he is obsessed with Country music after he made Country Strong in Nashville.

  • totally

    @dwalker: Spot on!!

  • Taylor

    I mean’t Garrett. Spell check is shocking

  • Sam

    I think it is funny that Taylor goes on a date and people go CRAZY. You know the girl can have a personal life and be friends with guys.

  • bee

    Oh no Garrett! not whorelore Swift. This gal rolls around like a toilet paper.

  • kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!

    Good for they,if they want

  • http://Ja Sligo lambert ^_______^ cute

    Couple sad and gitting cry

  • Swifty

    I think they are cute, but Taylor needs to keep her people from going to the tabloids. The tabloids will definately run this guy off. He is a very low key guy who doens’t like to share his private life to the public. He has even stated this in an interview. I hope she doens’t ruin it.

  • Cammie

    Going on dates with guys makes her a whore, you act like she has kids with every guy she went on a date with…

    The Hate for this girl is just stupid

  • US weekly

    US weekly got their information from twitter. I saw the tweets on Friday. Two women in town for Nashville’s fashion week saw them and another person separate from them saw Garrett in an elevator at a hotel. US weekly has to be the biggest annoyance for any celeb. I remember when Taylor was dating Jake a girl tweeted about seeing Jake and then later tweeted to US weekly that she would never giver her information to the magazine because she thought US weekly was creepy.

  • kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!

    I think they want …..ehehehehe ;-)

  • http://Ja Sligo lambert ^_______^ cute

    Fake smile is strong .congratulation to all fans both

  • Nicks

    Just because Taylor is seen with a boy doesn’t make her a loose girl. I think some of you think that if you sit next to a boy, your dating them. Let the girl live her life. They might just be FRIENDS!!! Don’t beleive everything you read.

  • Your Weird!

    @kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!: Do you get high and then get on the computer and post crap?

  • scarjofan

    damn she needs to find another way to write songs!!!

  • Sarah

    didn’t just jared say he was with rashida and then us said he was with leighton meester? LOL

    Hes not recording a Cd, c’mon.

  • Hmmm….

    Hmmm, When it is stated that Taylor likes him because he is a normal guy, I think she is taking a dig at Jake. Reese said something very similar after she became engaged to Jim Toth. Reese said she was very glad to be with someone who was very real. I wonder what Jake really did to these girls to make them say that. Garrett is a really nice guy. He is friends with a lot of the musicians in Nashville including Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw. I can totally see them dating.

  • Rairai

    Garrett is unstoppable :S

  • So


    If he wants his personal life alone…going out with Taylor Swift of all people that will write songs about him and get tabloids articles and paparazzi stalking their every movie is NOT the way to do it.

  • Casey

    I remember back in December when US weekly had to retract their infromation about Jake being at Taylor’s birthday party. I dont’ beleive everything that they print. I did see the twitter feed from the people who saw them together. They might have gone on one date but all the extra information from US weekly is wrong. Garrett has stated he is not going to become a country music artist. Also Taylor is just friends with Chord. She never dated him. Chord even said on Ellen that he was single and Taylor said last week in London that she was single. Taylor has worked with Chord’s brother in the past.

  • hmm

    this won’t help the garrett is gay rumors, a beard?

  • Howdy Folks

    I think it is funny how so many ladies and gay men get their feathers ruffled everytime Taylor even talks to a famous guy. Let the girl live her life folks.

  • kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!

    Did someone say something to me

  • cam

    Rashida, Leighton, and now Taylor…why does he keep getting linked with so many people??

  • Sky

    Wait. It originated from twitter? On April 1st? Maybe at the time it was an April Fools joke…

  • jane

    That tight eyed woman is not pretty, and she can’t sing.

  • Jaimie

    I think it is weird that a guy can go and flirt/date with as many girls as he wants without being labled a slut. A girl could go one date with one guy one month and realize halfway through the date that it will never work out. So she then finds another guy two months later and decides to go on a date with him and gets labled a slut.

  • kami

    i know lots of ppl like to make fun of taylor, but she seems like one of the most grounded ppl in show business. the girl works her butt off and she’s not into bar hopping and drinking herself silly. she seems very down to earth and normal. and there’s nothing wrong with her going out on a date with some guy. she hasn’t jumped into a serious relationship yet cause she hasn’t found the right guy. that’s very smart of her. it’s better to be choosy than to settle for the first dude that comes along just to prove she has a boyfriend.

  • Juliana


    He shouldn’t rule what to do and what not to do because people will start a crappy rumour about it. If they want to meet up is totally up to them, not the tabloids and not to us.

  • It’s pretty outside

    I totally support this couple.They are both friends with Tim Mcgraw, Faith Hill, Gweneth Paltrow, and Chris Martin. Garrett loves Nashville and has said he is looking for a home there. They could just be friends and US weekly saw some people tweeting about it and went crazy with the info. I want beleive they are truly a couple unless they start hanging out more.

  • Adorbs!!

    Adorable. I really do hope she takes it SLOW. She is known for moving too fast with guys and it scares them off. They were both at the Vanity Fair party in February. I wonder if they were set up by Gweneth at the party.

  • porny


    Be careful of twitter. I remember very clear that Taylor’s “robofans” were tweeting things that weren’t true. Fake sightings of her with Joe or Jake.

    The way it works is that a PR person will plant something with twitter, then the “fans” which are really shadow site repeatedly spam twitter. It is a marketing device a lot of brands use. Now it is being used to promote celebrities. It is a techno thing for marketing.

    I know one thing about her, Taylor says a lot of stuff, like, “I don’t talk about my personal life” but then she makes sure her personal life gets out there. It is always about making her look like she is really popular and being with all these cool people. Her mother is her manager, so don’t blame Taylor.

  • Windy

    I couldn’t stop laughing after I read that Taylor and Garrett went on a date on Friday and two days later Jake G is spotted on a date with a Taylor Swift look a like. LOL!!

  • true

    She’s a big b*tch. Look at her evil eyes! No wonder why nobody wants to remain for long with her.

  • What!

    @true: To quote Taylor’s song Mean. “You don’t know what you don’t know.” Unless your in the relationship also, then you have no idea what is going on.

  • Whatever

    @porny: And you know this how…… Taylor is a very famous celebrity. This girl does not need a guy to gain publicity. She is a household name. She just won one of the biggest awards in Country Music and just came off her world tour. She doesn’t need the extra fame.

  • Cole

    Thank GOD he is making an album! His songs were incredible on the Country Strong soundtrack!! I’m so happy!

  • true

    @What!: Its obvious this girl has a problem with guys. No one wants to be her formal bf!

  • Emma

    she will scare him away, then write a song about it. This is how she gets her kicks. By scaring men. teheheheeeeeee

  • senseless

    Taylor & Garret are another odd couple. I think she and Cord are a better match even though she likes older guys. And I wish you would quit hooking her up with everyone she goes out with. When I was her age I had a lot of male friends who were not BFs, just friends.

  • jj1234

    I wonder if she would ever date someone not in the entertainment industry?
