Taylor Swift is topping charts in grand style!
The 31-year-old honored Don McLean with a heartwarming gift after breaking the icon’s longtime record for the longest track to dominate the Billboard’s Hot 100.
McLean has held the record for 50 years with his 1971 hit track “American Pie,” which ran for over 8 minutes, but Swift recently stole the spot with her 10 minutes song, “All Too Well.”

“Don, I will never forget that I’m standing on the shoulders of giants. Your music has been so important to me. Sending love one writer of LONG SONGS to another. Your fan, Taylor.”
Touched by the songstress’s gesture of goodwill, McLean described the 11-time Grammy winner as a “classy artist” in the post’s caption.
The “Cats” actress also commemorated her big win with a hilarious video. The 31-year-old uploaded a clip of herself lip-syncing to an audio track of a child saying, “what the hell.”
While Swift repeatedly mimicked the words, screenshots of the news articles announcing that her song, “All Too Well,” had topped the Billboard Charts could be seen in the background. The Pop star’s post was captioned:
“You guys sent a 10 minute song to number one for the first time in history honestly WTH.”
The Record-Breaking Track Meant A Lot To The “Shake It Off” Singer
The “Blank Space” singer initially celebrated her victory on Twitter with a heartfelt message of gratitude for her fans and music team.
The “Miss Americana” star jokingly tweeted that she let out a “FERAL SCREECH upon hearing the exciting news.” However, her joy didn’t stop the entertainer from honoring her supporters.
The “Enchanted” artist confessed that she was proud of “All Too Well” because of the memories she shared with fans, and her Billboard win was also due to their support.
The beloved singer’s team wasn’t left out as she expressed her gratitude to the geniuses that created the “ultimate craftsman of songs.”
The Blast previously shared that the “The Lorax” star was having one of the best years in her career with her first re-recorded album, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version).”
In addition, she blew the minds of fans with “Red (Taylor’s Version),” followed by the unique music video for “I Bet You Think About Me” featuring Chris Stapleton.
Hollywood sensation Blake Lively made her directorial debut on the video, capturing the Emmy Winner crashing Miles and Keleigh Teller’s wedding.
With Swift’s accolades this year, one can only wonder what the talented artist has in store for 2022.
