Taylor Swift owes Jason Alexander everything ... at least that's the way he feels because as it turns out he's not only a huge fan, he kinda put her on the map.
Word is Jason did his best Tay Tay impersonation during a Karaoke fundraiser at L.A.'s El Rey Theatre -- and outside he revealed their little known connection.
It's all courtesy of a Brad Paisley music vid Alexander directed back in 2007 ... when Taylor was just starting to blow up in country music -- but Jason had her doing something besides singing.
Who knew? Costanza's just as country as Taylor! Well, sorta ...
