October 2006 (Sparks Fly)
Swift opened up for country musician Jake Owen at Duke's Bar in Portland; the hidden message in the lyric booklet of Speak Now for Sparks Fly is Portland, Oregon. She also wrote a Myspace post about the experience in October of 2006.
Taylor played Sparks Fly at some of her earlier shows; when a live version hit YouTube, fans went wild. A HQ version leaked on the unreleased trading market, and three albums later Taylor made the excellent decision to include it on Speak Now. Check out Owen's music here.
