Taylor Swift has been spotted having dinner with Garrett Hedlund.

The country singer and the 'Tron: Legacy' actor are allegedly getting close after they met up for a low-key date last Friday (01.04.11) in Nashville, where Taylor is currently recording.

A source said: "It was their first time going out. They've been emailing for a while, and she hinted they should get together.

"She has actually spent time getting to know Garrett. He's cute - and he's into country music! [She] likes that he's a normal guy."

The 26-year-old hunk - who also starred in 'Country Strong', playing an up and coming country singer - joined Taylor at a restaurant at 8.00pm before returning to his hotel at 12.30am.

The 'You Belong With Me' star's romantic life has been varied of late, with the 21-year-old blonde breaking up with Jake Gyllenhaal last year, before being linked to 'Glee' star Chord Overstreet. She has also dated musicians Joe Jonas and Jon Mayer.

On Sunday (03.04.11) she was named Entertainer of the Year at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
