A US man took a bus from Wisconsin to Nashville, climbed a fence at a home linked to singer Taylor Swift and told police he was there to surprise a woman on her birthday, authorities say.

He is jailed on a trespassing charge.

The singer, who is overseas, turned 23 on Thursday. Court documents show 24-year-old Jacob Nicholas Kulke, of Marshfield, Wisconsin, was arrested after climbing a fence and secured gate.

The affidavit did not identify the property owner, and Swift's spokeswoman declined comment on whether the home was linked to the family.

But online celebrity news websites indicate Swift had a connection to the home. The City Paper previously reported that the US$2.5 million house was bought last year by a trustee who has previously handled property deals for Swift.

The affidavit said Kulke claimed he was in contact with a person at the home through "social media" and it was her birthday and he wanted to surprise her and that he was also dating her.

"He continuously stated once he was released, he was going to continue to have contact" with the people at the home, the affidavit said.

He was charged with criminal trespassing and his bond was set at US$10,000.

Nashville police said in a news release that Kulke is also wanted in Colorado for contempt of court and probation violation in regard to a burglary case.

He also has misdemeanour charges of battery, disorderly conduct and possession of THC from 2010 in Wisconsin, according to court records.
