Country star Shania Twain rocked a full-length cheetah print bodysuit in the music video for “Legends Never Die.” So now, on the music video’s anniversary, she’s releasing a clip from it on social media.
Shania Twain, Orville Peck Released ‘Legends Never Die’ Video One Year Ago
The two Canadian crossover country stars joined forces for the “Legends Never Die” music video. The song is from Peck’s EP Show Pony.
“Working with Shania was a dream come true,” Peck said last year, per Rolling Stone. “Her music made me feel empowered as a kid and was a huge influence on me.”
In the music video, Twain and Peck appear together onstage at a drive-in movie theater. A movie plays across the big screen behind them as they sing.
Peck had hinted at the collaboration on social media before the music video came out. He tweeted pictures of himself and Twain.
“I wrote a duet for it and somehow wrangled one of my all time country music icons for it,” he posted on Twitter at the time. “Genuinely this is a dream come true.”
Twain Reveals How She Chose Her Stage Name
Today, she is Shania Twain, the top-selling female star in country music history. But way back when, she was Eilleen Regina Edwards.
In a recent interview with Apple Music’s Home Now Radio, Twain revealed her birth name and how she became Shania Twain over time.
“A lot of celebrities are born with a different name than they end up with as a stage name, and I’m one of those people,” Twain told the streaming station. “It’s actually a long story. In short, I was born, Eilleen Regina Edwards, and then I was adopted and I became Eilleen Regina Twain.”
“Then I became a professional singer and I needed a stage name that sounded a little less like my grandmother’s name,” she explained. “Because I’m named after my grandmother, both my grandmothers, Eilleen and Regina. I think, in my mind, I was just not really wanting to be called my grandmother’s name on stage, so I decided to change it to Shania Twain. I met somebody with the name Shania, thought it was beautiful, and Shania Twain was born.”
Whether she goes by Eilleen or Shania, the woman is quite a performer. And the “Legends Never Die” music video is just one more reminder of that.
