Ruston Kelly Earns Taylor Swift's Stamp of Approval on 'All Too Well' Cover

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift arrives at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards which broadcasted live on FOX at Microsoft Theater on March 14, 2019 in Los Angeles.

Taylor Swift took to social media on Friday (March 29) to share singer/songwriter Ruston Kelly’s cover of her 2012 album cut “All Too Well.”

“Thank you @rustonkelly for this unbelievable cover of All Too Well and for your incredibly kind words about the song” the superstar wrote on her Instagram story, sharing a clip of Kelly’s video.

Featured on 2012’s Red, “All Too Well” was never officially released as a single, but remains a fan favorite track for its vulnerable lyrics, which she famously performed at the 2014 Grammys and whose lyrics are rumored to hint at the star’s short-lived romance with Jake Gyllenhaal.   

Kelly’s version of the song premiered Thursday exclusively via Billboard and was released Friday as an Amazon Original and is available for purchase and streaming on Amazon Music. Check out Taylor’s shout-out to Kelly below.
