Taylor Swift's Acoustic Version Of 'Wildest Dreams' Showcases Her Natural Talent

An incredible performance released on January 4.

When the video of Taylor Swift's September 30 performance of "Out of the Woods" at the Grammy Museum hit the internet, it immediately went viral, accumulating some 3.4 million views to date ... but there was another performance that night that, until today, hasn't been seen by the majority of her fans: a stunning acoustic version of "Wildest Dreams."

Backed only by the sound of her Fender Jaguar guitar, Swift's voice comes through as clean, mature, and powerful in the track from 1989, the video of which has amassed an incredible 315 million views on her Vevo YouTube channel. 

With the bass, percussion, and synthesizer strings removed, however, her performance here is beautifully raw — it scorches with pleading sincerity and showcases Swift's natural talent in a way very different from that of her studio recordings.
