OFFSTAGE: Taylor Swift Has a Rolling Stones Moment

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

At Monday night’s (June 3) Rolling Stones concert in Chicago, one song stood out to everyone in the audience who leans a little country. Mick Jagger brought Taylor Swift onstage to duet on the band’s 1965 hit “As Tears Go By.” It was reportedly a stripped-down take on the almost 50-year-old song. Had this been a CMT Crossroads , it would have been cool to hear Jagger do some of Swift’s biggest hits. Songs like “Picture to Burn,” “22” and “Should’ve Said No” come to mind. If Swift and the Stones ever collaborate again, what would be on your wish list set list?
