Country music singer-songwriter Shania Twain was singing up a storm with “She’s Not Just a Pretty Face” during the 2003 Billboard Awards.

Twain moved up and through a crowd of children on stage, making her way to the footlights and start to sing her hit number.

The song is part of her 2002 album release “Up!” and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. It also was her 15th Top 10 single on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles chart.

“She’s Not Just a Pretty Face” was written by Shania Twain and her then-husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange.

Take a look at Twain’s performance at the Billboard Awards.

Shania Twain Looks Back At ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’

Shania Twain made her mark in country music after lots of struggle and heartache. She also added a powerful phrase to American lingo.

When Twain says “Let’s Go Girls!” at the beginning of “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” it’s like a call-to-action for her female fans.

She looks back on the phrase and adds some thoughts of her own in an Instagram post.

In the post, Shania Twain also asks her fans and followers to tell her who are the woman that inspired them in 2020.

Kelsea Ballerini Loved Teaming Up With Twain

Twain’s influence on female country singers flows to many of them, especially Kelsea Ballerini.

She had the opportunity of a lifetime, albeit in a virtual concert format, to sing with Shania Twain in the VerizonUp concert series last December.

Ballerini was most excited about her collaboration with Twain.

“Then recently, I got to collaborate with Shania Twain, who I grew up on, and then she added her superpowers to my song (‘Hole in the Bottle’ remix),” she says. “It’s so much stronger and powerful when two females work together and respect each other and lift each other up and do it through music.

“I was doing a virtual meet-and-greet yesterday, and someone asked me, ‘Who is your dream collaboration that you’re looking forward to one day?’ And I was like, ‘This is not a cop-out, but it’s Shania,’” Ballerini said. “I can’t do better than that. That is the peak for me, just to have someone that genuinely blazed trails that have allowed me to do what I do as a female in country music.”
