HOUSTON – Taylor Swift has written hit songs for herself for years, but she recently lent her talent to others, from former boyfriend Calvin Harris to country act Little Big Town.

And now Grammy-winning country group Lady Antebellum wants the Swift-song treatment.

“I mean honestly Taylor, call us,” Hillary Scott said in an interview Sunday. “Like, we’re up for whatever,” she added with a laugh. “Let’s go.”

Swift wrote “Better Man” for Little Big Town, and the tune topped the Billboard Hot country songs chart this month – bringing Swift’s name back to the country charts after launching her powerhouse pop career in 2014.

After short hiatus, Lady Antebellum is back with new music

Charles Kelley of Lady A said they would maybe want Swift to write “a nostalgic song … we like nostalgic songs.”

And Kelley said there’s something else they want: a No.1 smash.

“I hope it would be No.1. That’s all I want,” he said. “It better go No. 1 though. If we cut a song and it goes like No.2, I’m going to be so disappointed.”

Swift performed “Better Man” and “This Is What You Came For” at a pre-Super Bowl concert this past weekend. The Harris track, which earned Swift a writing credit under alias Nils Sjoberg, features Rihanna. It peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100, giving Harris his highest placement on the chart.

Tell me this isnt Trikey

“Another shot of whiskey, can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweepin’ in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk, and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now”

Need you now - Lady Antebellum

Just a kiss on your lips in the moonlight

Just a touch of the fire burning so bright

No, I don’t wanna mess this thing up

I don’t want to push too far

Just a shot in the dark that you just might

Be the the one I’ve been waiting for my whole life

So baby I’m alright, with just a kiss goodnight
