Stephen Barker Liles and Taylor SwiftIn 2008, Taylor Swift's then-just-released album, 'Fearless,' became a monster hit and garnered lots of attention not only for the singer but for the subjects of her deeply personal songs.

One such tune was 'Hey Stephen,' which included dreamy, romantic lines such as, "I can't help it if you look like an angel / Can't help it if I wanna kiss you in the rain" and "come feel this magic I've been feeling since I met you."

Taylor revealed later that the song's inspiration was Stephen Barker Liles of the group Love and Theft, whom the then-teenaged superstar cited as one of her favorite bands.

After the endless scrutinizing of Taylor's body of work became a favorite national pastime, the then-trio released their debut album, and naturally, the song came up in conversation with them often.
