For just a few moments Friday night (Nov. 18), you'd have thought it was Darius Rucker's concert.

Taylor Swift continued her streak of bringing hometown musical heroes onstage with her by bringing South Carolina native Darius Rucker to her show at an arena in Columbia, S.C.

When Darius broke into his country hit "Alright," the crowd sang along—loudly.

Seems Taylor's a fan, too.

When introducing him, Taylor said, "He's one of the friendliest, coolest, most talented guys, and he comes from South Carolina. I hope it's alright with you if we have a guest tonight."
