Well, I have to say I didn't see this coming -- Bayou Country Superfest just announced that Taylor Swift will be headlining the Friday night of the 2015 show on May 22.

Isn't that fascinating? Considering Taylor has pretty much abandoned country music, it's a strange move to make, but it doesn't really matter because there's no doubt Swift will fill Tiger Stadium to the very last seat. It's a smart move financially, but it makes about as much programming sense these days as hiring Led Zeppelin to follow up Luke Bryan.

There will be more leaks coming out all week long as to the show's remaining headliners. Anyone taking bets?
