“They say don’t meet your heroes… unless your hero is Shania Twain…then meet her, know her, and make music with her,” said Ballerini in a statement. “She’s inspired me in every way and has become a mentor and friend and added some major sass and spice to hole in the bottle the way only Shania could.”
Added Twain: “Kelsea and I have had some fun laughs together over the last couple of years! She joined me on stage back in 2017 when I headlined Stagecoach and we’ve had a chance to catch up over a glass of wine a couple of times since. We’ve also sent pieces of songs back and forth to each other and I have to say, she’s an incredible raw talent. I love ‘hole in the bottle,’ it really speaks to my own sense of humour and it was so cool to get to do it with a friend.”
Ballerini performed the song — the third single from her 2020 album Kelsea — at Wednesday night’s CMA Awards, sharing a tease about the collab when she ended the performance by quoting Twain’s iconic opening to “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” — “Let’s go, girls!”
Meanwhile, Twain and Ballerini had previously appeared together — virtually, that is — in a TikTok video that got people wondering what was up with the two country queens.
