Rest easy Scotland, you have a new champion of your nation in the form of multi-award winning singer Taylor Swift.

The 25-year-old artist, currently beieved to be dating Scottish DJ Calvin Harris, posted a celebratory 4th July photograph on Instagram last night captioned: “Friendly relations between Scotland and America.”

Calvin and Swift, who overtook Beyoncé and Jay-Z as the highest earning couple in the music industry last month, are a prominent social media presence.

Both devoted Instagram users (although Swift’s output tends to far exceed Harris’s) fans have been enjoying a recent deluge of pictures showcasing their seemingly enviable life.

It’s hardly the first time Swift has posted about her affection for the cold, rain-drenched nation to the north of England.

Performing a gig in Glasgow’s SSE Hydro stadium as she kicked off her UK leg of her 1989 world tour earlier this year, she told an ecstatic crowd she was “one of you”.

“So I am one of you, and I’m proud because this crowd is amazing,” she told her fans, recounting an email her father sent her earlier that week explaining the Swift family originated from Scotland. She also told the crowd: “I happen to love Scottish people, personally”.
