Don McLean's longest-running record has been broken.

Don McLean held the record for the longest #1 song on Billboard charts for over half a century.

His hit single "American Pie" was a staggering 8 minutes and 42 seconds long.

Taylor Swift has since broken that record.

Her full version of "All Too Well" is 10 minutes and 13 seconds long.

It is now the longest song to hit #1 on Billboard Charts.

Don McLean congratulated Swift on breaking his record.

He admitted "nobody ever wants to lose that #1 spot."

However, he is "glad it was another great singer/songwriter such as Taylor.”
