Country music icon Shania Twain headlined the Boots & Hearts Music Festival near Toronto in her native Canada this weekend. The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” singer got to spend some time with a fellow Canadian woman, Avril Lavigne. Lavigne spent much of the summer on the road with Machine Gun Kelly, but she had a little break and got to see someone she looked up to perform. Check out the photo that Twain shared below.
“Look who came to Boots & Hearts!! I’m so happy I got to spend some time with Avril Lavigne yesterday. So fun to see the videos of the girls partying side stage, love it!” Shania Twain captioned the post.
Avril Lavigne would have been about 13 when Shania Twain’s breath through Come on Over was released. She would have been about 18 when the followup Up! was out. So, yeah, that checks out. It was a fan girl moment for Lavigne, as you can see her and a friend singing along and dancing in the second slide to “Any Man of Mine.”
“Shania – you put on the most spectacular show of all time! So wonderful to spend time together,” the 37-year-old replied. In the video, she is joined by another Canadian songstress, Fefe Dobson.
Followers couldn’t believe the unlikely pairing. “LEGENDS.” “ICONS.” “QUEENS,” followers replied.
“Wow Shania Twain and Avril Lavigne best icon super friends ever,” replied one follower.
“So many Canadian icons in one post,” said another.
“Omg fefe Dobson is RETURNING,” speculated another.
Avril Lavigne has one more date stateside in Cleveland, Ohio on August 13 at FirstEnergy Stadium. Then she heads to South America for a few dates in September before returning to perform at Firefly in Delaware on September 23.
