KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Country music star Taylor Swift introduced her latest music video during a half-hour television special Friday evening.

The 20-year-old Grammy winner premiered “Mine” in Kennebunkport, where the video was shot last month.

During the cable TV special, Swift discussed the music video locations and showed behind-the-scenes footage.

Afterward, Swift met with former President George H.W. Bush, who lives nearby and came out with his grandchildren to see her. She then surprised the hundreds of fans gathered outside St. Anne’s Church by performing several songs with her band.

The first release from Swift’s new album is due out Oct. 25.
