“Did you know that we can be beautiful inside and out, and still be smart and talented at the same time? Ha! Who knew?” the ’90s hitmaker goes on to say. “We can do it all, ladies. That’s what I say. We can do it all.”
While Twain was influenced by a number of legendary country women like Wynette, she’s become something of a legend herself to younger artists breaking into the genre. Kelsea Ballerini has been especially vocal about what a hero Twain is to her, and the pair even collaborated on a duet version of the younger star’s “Hole in the Bottle.”
During Monday’s episode of Twain’s radio show, Ballerini called in to wish Twain a happy International Women’s Day and express how much her music has meant to a younger generation of artists and listeners, herself included.
“Ah, that makes my long road to my own success very worth it,” Twain says in response. “To be complimented by not only another artist, but another female artist. We need each other, women. We need each other.”
Happy Women’s Day !
