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

Katherine Heigl is married to country singer Josh Kelley, who is the brother of Charles Kelley, the frontman for Lady Antebellum. And Lady Antebellum is on top of the country world, and so is Taylor Swift. So when you put those four degrees of separation together, it's only natural that Heigl would consider Swift a good pal. I think.

When she was on the red carpet at the Elle's Women in Hollywood event on Monday (Oct. 17) night, Heigl said that she'd spent some time on the road with her husband when he was on tour with Swift. "I adore that girl. I was so excited to meet her! I tried to keep it cool but after chatting for only 20 minutes I was like 'we're best friends now!' She is so sweet and down to earth," Heigl told Celebuzz.

One thing is for sure. They certainly have impeccable style in common. Heigl wore an LBD from Amanda Wakeley and David Yurman jewels to the event. Josh Kelley looked nice, too, in a tux and a brand new crew cut. His beard is still fully intact, but I have to say I'm loving the cropped haircut over the shaggy one he has on his Georgia Clay album cover.
