Taylor Swift brought her new song "Carolina" for the movie "Where The Crawdads Sing" in the 1950s.

Olivia Newman added, "She went and wrote this song out of sheer inspiration and said something like, 'I don't know if you like it, but here it is!'"

The director revealed that Taylor Swift "wrote us this wonderful letter explaining that she chose instruments that were only available before 1953 and that she recorded the song in one shot the way the songs were recorded at the time."
