Taylor Swift has sure had an eventful Thursday, with her mural announcement and an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts on site at the NFL Draft.

It was announced earlier in the day that Swift was, in fact, responsible for the latest Nashville mural. Swift showed up to the art piece to surprise fans-- even the artist herself who didn't know that she was creating this for Swift.

Swift teases her new clues at the start of the telecast, "I've lived here for fifteen years and have never seen anything like this," Swift tells Roberts of the size of the crowd in downtown Nashville. "I have been giving some clues, but there are more clues to come," Swift says.

Swift tells Roberts that she has been crying in the green room since it's so emotional.  Swift then made the big announcement. "It's going to be a new song and music video. The song is called ME! in all caps with an exclamation point and it's featuring Brendon Urie from Panic! at The Disco," she announces.

When Roberts asked what she wants to say to her fans she was quick to reply. "Thank you so much for caring about music that I make. I'm here tonight and I'm seeing these people who have worked their whole lives to achieve their dreams in this city."

Swift even gave us a sneak peek of the new song. She explains, "ME! is all about embracing your individuality and owning it. With a pop song, we had the ability to get a melody stuck in people’s heads and we wanted it to be one that makes them feel better about themselves.”

While in Nashville, Swift even visited some of the spots in the city that helped shape her as a person and an artist. The television special aired a clip of her driving around the city.
