Colbie Caillat — ‘Breathe’

One of the first artists Taylor Swift collaborated with is Colbie Caillat, the artist behind songs like “Lucky” and “Bubbly.” The two sang together for Taylor Swift’s song “Breathe.” Additionally, the two were seen embracing at the 2008 American Music Awards.

“I recently wrote a song with Colbie Caillat, who’s No. 1 on my ‘Cool
People List,'” Swift said in an interview with Dial-Global. “She’s got this amazing album that I’ve fallen in love with, and I got the great opportunity to write a song with her. I’ve got this awesome tape of us both singing it, and I’m playing guitar and she starts singing these backup vocals and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, she’s got the best voice ever.’ And so that’s a really cool thing that I’m very excited about on this album.”
