A couple of days before Christmas, singer-songwriter Louisa Wendorff posted a cover mash-up of Taylor Swift’s 1989 hits “Blank Space” and “Style” on her YouTube page. A couple of days after Christmas, Swift discovered it, gave the video her stamp of approval, and, consequently, made Wendorff’s holiday. In the clip (below), Wendorff and fellow Nashville-based songwriter Devin Dawson stand back-to-back, playing both songs unplugged and crafting a unique boy-girl love song all their own. T-Swift was into it so much she plastered Wendorff and Dawson’s piece on her Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts (yes, even Google+).
Wendorff said she literally lost her breath when the news reached her (and posted pics to prove it):
At time of publication, Wendorff’s video had more than 430,000 views. She also said there’s more where this came from in 2015 (hopefully with fewer #hospitalhangs).
