Taylor Swift is topping the charts with grace.
The Grammy winner, 31, sent Don McLean a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a special note after her song "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" topped "American Pie" as the longest song to hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
"What a class act! Thank you Taylor Swift for the flowers and note," wrote McLean, 76, alongside a photo of him posing with the gift on Instagram.
"American Pie," which hit No. 1 hit following its 1971 release, runs 8 minutes and 42 seconds long. "All Too Well (Taylor's Version)" clocks in at 10 minutes and 13 seconds.
Last week, McLean congratulated Swift for her accomplishment in a statement shared on his website. "There is something to be said for a great song that has staying power," the artist wrote.

" 'American Pie' remained on the top for 50 years and now Taylor Swift has unseated such a historic piece of artistry," he added. "Let's face it, nobody ever wants to lose that No. 1 spot, but if I had to lose it to somebody, I sure am glad it was another great singer/songwriter such as Taylor."

On Monday, Swift thanks fans for helping her accomplish the rare feat in a special message on Twitter. "I'm so proud of this song and the memories I have with you guys because of it," she wrote.
"You truly chose this one and now you did THIS?! I'm floored," the singer continued. "A 10-minute song is at the top of the Hot 100."
"American Pie" is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary.
