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?

    For all we know, they went on one date. They could have realized that they were not meant to be and maybe they are friends. Maybe they are just friends to begin with. It is US weekly that came out with this story and they are not a reliable news source.

    I cannot believe the BITCHY people on this site. Why all the hate for Taylor? Because she is rich, famous, and beautiful. She is obviously the winner her and not all you nasty losers.

    The song Mean is about nasties like you all.

    But it is ok because Taylor is already “livin in a big old city & all your’e ever gonna be is mean”. & Taylor will keep laughing all the way to the bank. Way to go Taylor Swift, you have my support.

    @Whatever: I know this because i work in advertising and there is marketing technology now that is adapting to twitter and it s called social media marketing.

    All you have to do is monitor the tweets. And I also happen to know that on Taylor’s website her fans are asked to go out here and make sure they go after people who are being “negative ” towards Taylor.
    It’s like a cult. LOL! The robospams usually have several messages and rotate them. There was anarticle on this stuff a couple weeks ago. Do you live under a rock?

    BTW: The reason Taylor is so successful is because she is grinding out publicity 24/7. There is no such thing as “enough publicity”. When you say “Taylor doesn’t need to” you sound so foolish. That is the first thing her people would say. Of course she “needs to. Any marketing professional will tell you that.

    It is a really awesome operation. Politicians will probably be using it in the future.

  • HellNo

    She needs to get the hell away from him. He’s a nice, down-to-earth guy, and all she wants is a new person to write about.

  • So


    Then don’t whine that people should leave him alone…If he’s gonna be with Taylor he CHOSE to make all his life public and in the papers

  • Chel

    No Garrett not her. I would prefer him to be with someone not famous. And how can she say she goes for normal guys with John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhall she’s jsut in it for attention

  • Jane Anders

    @porny: I also work in Marketing and no, those tweets about Garrett and Taylor were not fake. My daughter saw the tweets and your message on here and I thought I should correct you and say that the tweets were real. I have the links if you want to check them out. Please also let everyone know where on Taylor’s website are they saying that people should go after people who make negative comments about her??

  • mari

    I think this is for publicity. I think it will help Garrett get better known by being with Taylor. Even they can like each other and be friends it is still good for publicity too. There is no harm to it. They are both young and single why is it such problems of so many peoples.

  • Madeline

    Just because you go on one date does not mean you are boyfriend and girlfriend. There is already a website stating that Taylor and Garrett’s children will be blond and talented. Seriously? It was just one date. It was no big deal. I actually feel sorry for Taylor sometimes. Everything she does gets talked about and put in a tabloid. I remeber a couple of weeks ago when Taylor was photographed coming out of Publix and people got in an argument over the fact that she had a Bob Dylan shirt on. This girl is entitled to live a life without people gripping over every little thing she does. Good luck for both of them if they are dating.

  • Kat


    So, you say he has to choose his friends/lovers (whatever) according to whether he wants to keep his privacy or not instead of if he likes a person or not?
    That’s if you were saying someone should stop complaining about people protesting against racist statement about a ethnical mixed couple because those 2 people could always stop dating, so it’s their own fault some idiots throw mud on them.
    Interesting. (please note I don’t think your statement was either racist or insulting, I just try to make my point clear)

    Actually I don’t care about Taylor Swift. Don’t know if she’s supposed to be nice or bitchy or whatever.
    But, poor girl, if your point was true. (no one who doesn’t want to keep his privacy is even allowed to go out with her)
    Because this would doom her to only date exhibitionists, arrogant assholes, or at least people who want to date her because they want to become more famous, well… or no one.^^

  • mandy

    while I do think the pairing is a bit odd, if they are together, I don’t think it’s the same as her previous relationships. Garrett isn’t really the type to get involved in “fake” relationships. He’s extremely low key and I don’t think he has ever talked about any of his previous relationships. oh and btw, he denied both the rashida and leighton rumors so those weren’t true.

    I think people are too harsh about taylor. She doesn’t seem that clingy or annoying in real life judging by the awesome people she’s friends with (eg. emma stone). Yes she wrote some bad breakup songs about john mayor and joe jonas but can you blame her? I don’t even have to date joe or john to know that they’re both assholes. She even blamed herself in her song about taylor lautner.

  • Lindsey

    Wow, what a popular girl, and FiremenDate was amazing

  • faith

    There’s something about this girl that I respect, but that also perplexes me at the same time. She’s 21. Relationships are not fairytales, you’re not a princess, it’s real life and you work on them. That’s not to say you should have low standards and choose horrible boyfriends. Know your worth, but don’t expect flowers and candlelit dinners every night! Maybe that’s the reason she has had so many boyfriends, because she holds on to that myth and she gets disappointed after the fresh and cuteness of the beginning rubs off. I respect that she doesn’t feel the need to sex/trash it up to be a respected artist, but there’s something about her that is off. I feel like, she’s a real life naiive Princess Giselle from that Disney movie.

  • Cindy

    I was hoping he was dating leighton!

  • NOOOOOOO!!!!

    Run, Garrett, Run!!!! Taylor gets around and I don’t want you to be another notch in her bedpost. Taylor, please stop going through men like water and take care of yourself.

  • Cami

    She is so ugly. She’ll probably end up marrying one of her cousins!!!

  • Sofia

    @bee: I couldn’t have said it better!

  • mia


    i do believe the leighton rumour. i really think there’ s something happening between the these two. their chemistry was too much too handle. i bet they’re hidding something:D

  • rocky

    she’s doing every man in the business….slow down girl!

  • Alexandra

    @jane: I guarantee you ain’t no oil painting yourself.

  • AA11

    i really wish garrett would just date leighton!!!! they look so good together!!

  • So

    @Kat: My response was to Julian who was complaing we should leave his personal life alone. If he’s gonna day the girl who writes songs about ALL her breakups with CELEBRITY guys. She talks about all her relationships, she poses for the paparazzi like its a photo shoot (walking with Jake with her arms wrapped around him) and ALL of it always ends up being an US Magazine exclusive. Then he’s gonna get his personal life talked about
    Coincidence? Nope. If he wants to date her

  • diandra

    yeah, I also always wish he dating Leighton. they’re will be cute couple

  • Josy

    I HOPE this is a rumor
    Did not give a sh!t when she was with the:
    -Jonas child
    -Lautner man-child
    -Fake charmer Gyllenhaal
    But Garrett is another situation because I don’t want Taylor’s boycrazy ways, writing cheesy songs for Garrett Hedlund.
    Garrett is too good for her.

  • armyofkitties

    taylor jusrt cannot stay single can she? little slut.

  • Mina

    Is it me or this chick will soon have all the hot and normal guys on her ex-list? I mean seriously can’t she be alone for a day or two? Tramp.

  • RTD

    It looks like so many lies. But it wouldn’t be the first crazy story that US Weekly invented, right?
    I could buy Rashilda’s (which is flawed) and Leighton’s (that can be just lies) rumours, but this one? Never.

  • Rizeefa

    Give it a few weeks and they’ll go through a nasty break-up, which will turn into a Billboard hit song for Taylor. I swear she’s not really looking for love, she’s using men to fatten her pay check. Dirty girl.

  • gg fan

    Garrett isnt dating with Leighton or Rashida its all obviously coined

  • #1

    are you kidding? This is what she wants. She dates a new celebrity every week I mean think about all the guys she has dated. Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, the two guys from Glee, jake gyllenhaal, and im sure theres a couple Im missing. She does it so she will constantly be in the media so no one will forget about her, therefore making her more exposed to get more fans, therefore more awards, more money etc. Shes the biggest FAME WH0RE I have ever seen.

  • Cherry

    Although i am a huge fan of Taylor, i still can’t bear her short-lasted relationships with guys, there is no one of her relationships lasting for more than a year, no i mean 3 months. She just needs to stop and find someone she truely loves other than jumping from guy to guy.

  • kelly

    Calling Taylor Swift a slut/tramp is really uncalled for. She’s only been on one date with Garrett Hedlund. Most girls aren’t going to sleep with guys on the first date.

    For the record, I don’t think she slept with Chord Overstreet, either. So they went out on one frickin’ date (2/24), that’s it. And the Montblanc Cocktail Party two days later, they’re not really ‘together.”

    And Taylor was gone practically the whole month of March for her Speak Now World Tour. She came back what….3/31? Definitely not shagging Chord that whole time. Just my 2 cents.

  • Maddie

    Chord and Cory from glee have both stated that they have never dated Taylor. They are just friends. I personally think Taylor hung out with Chord together so that the press would stop pairing her with Jake repeatedly. I read an interview that Taylor did in England in which she said she was friends with the Glee kids. I personally think Taylor and Garrett are a cute couple if they are a couple. It was only one date though. You never know what will happen.

  • Underwater Basket Weaving

    I personally think Taylor and Garrett are cute. They both love Nashville and country music. They both grew up on farms and pursued their dreams in the entertainment industry. I just hope Taylor stops blabbing to her friends who love to go to the tabloids with the information they have. I am glad to hear that she is taking things slow because the last thing this girl needs is a public breakup.

  • shelly

    What’s off about this whole thing is that Garrett Hedlund is very private about his personal life and Taylor Swift lets almost everyone know what’s going on with each relationship she has been in. Then again they could be friends just hanging out.

  • guest10

    it was just a dinner date…lol…let’s not jump to conclusions…isn’t it normal for a 21 year old to date???? last month, she went to a hockey game with chord…what’s wrong with that…haven’t any of you gone to a game or dinner with a friend…

  • nicki

    No matter what Taylor still gorgeous. and she needs to date like a guy on this video.

  • brrrr

    Hey rpatz twitard, just because your gay idol is so effeminate you’re trying to compensate on Garrett. Not sticking yeah? LMAO Pathetic.

  • bir

    OK.. now we have a picture in star magazine!
    I don’t hate her.. I actually think she has a couple of nice songs, especially in fearless and her first album,, he current album is a let down compared to the 1st two!
    as for her well documented, publicized dates since January.. trust me it’s all for the sake of her next album!! you’ll see, it has become predictable and boring..
    I don’t blame her for these dates.. thisis how Hollywood works unfortunately
    BTW, I’m not buying the good girl/angelic forced public image.. she started natural and sweet, now she’s just… blah! and i guess that’s why her peers are ticked whenever she wins something! any way.. I wish her luck! and i wish she gets better with time..

  • wtf

    this is terrible. taywhore sucks and she may as well be a prosti for all the guys shes been with. if i saw her walkin in public, id kick her pussy ass. garretts too good for her. hes a good person and deserves waaaayyyyy better than her.

  • yosra

    okay..after few months ..they will break up and Sure Taylor will be the victim as usual and her heart broken ect,,,and she would write a pathetic song about him…such boring thing…to hear her whining everytime …Grow up taylor…
    i wish some of those guys would write a shitty song about her …
