Bredesen served as governor of Tennessee from 2003 to 2011.
In a tweet, Bredesen thanked Swift for her “kind words.”
“I’m honored to have your support and that of so many Tennesseans who are ready to put aside the partisan shouting and get things done,” he wrote. “We’re ready for it.”
“The choice continues to be clear: voters can either have more of the same old partisan shouting that’s coming out of D.C, or they can hire someone who has a track record of getting things done for Tennessee,” Bredesen’s campaign added in a statement to CNN.
Swift included a plea to her young adult fans in her post, urging them to register before the deadline.
“So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count,” she wrote.
    Swift added: “Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.”
