Only Taylor Swift could take the attention away from the largest event to take place in downtown Nashville—the NFL Draft. When word got out Thursday morning (April 25)  that pop star might show up at a mural, painted earlier in the week, throngs of fans took over the area.

The 29-year-old took to Instagram to share yet another clue to her big announcement taking place on Friday, April 26.

“So… @kelseymontagueart helped me pull off the best surprise clue reveal today in Nashville!! Thank you to everyone who showed up, I’ve never been more proud of your FBI level detective skills. Next clue: I’ll be joining the magnificent @robinrobertsgma for a chat tonight on ABC live from Nashville 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕,” Taylor wrote alongside a photo of herself perched in front of the winged mural.

Taylor began her clues on Instagram on April 13 (her lucky number) by simply sharing a heart image with the date 4.26. Subsequently, her first post came 13 days before the big news. See where we’re going with this. After sharing several photos of hearts, flowers, glitter and lots and lots of pink, a mural of a butterfly appeared in downtown Nashville, leading Swifties to tie it to Taylor’s announcement. They were right.

The butterfly mural contained the same images that Taylor had been posting all along—hearts, flowers, cats and pastel colors. The cryptic posts have many fans speculating that Taylor’s big news will be that she is releasing a new single along with the name of her new album.

According to a video shared by the Tennessean on Facebook, Taylor showed up to greet fans in front of the Mural. The “Bad Blood” singer kept with the theme, wearing a lavender skirt with matching cropped top. She also colored the tips of her hair pink.

We can’t wait to see what the big news is on Friday, but until then tune in to Robin Roberts Thursday night  (April 25) on ABC to get another clue from Tay Tay.
