In a night that included plenty of celebrity cameos and performances (including a surprise set from Taylor Swift!) it was the birthday girl herself who ruled the stage. At one point The Sweet Home Alabama star and proud southern belle joined Keith Urban for a special performance of Lynyrd Skynyrd's classic "Sweet Home Alabama." And Vanity Fair writer Derek Blasberg caught the amazing moment on video. Watch it here:
"You can take the girl out the South, but you can't take Sweet Home Alabama out the girl! HAPPY BIRTHDAY @reesewitherspoon (cc @keithurban)," he wrote in the post.
Author Cheryl Strayed (who penned Wild) was also in attendance, and stopped for a fangirl moment with Swift and actress Laura Dern:
"Um.. @taylorswift @lauradern #happybirthdayreese" she captioned the snap.
Witherspoon's actual birthday is Tuesday, March 22.
