Canadian country music legend Shania Twain cheered on the Nashville Predators during their last game against the Pittsburgh Penguins during the Stanley Cup finals, and the singer couldn’t help but contain her excitement.
With approximately 30 Canadian players between the two teams, Twain told Sportsnet’s Scott Oake just how proud she was to see Canada’s game “infect” the home of Country music.
“All these years ago that I came to Nashville, there wasn’t even a hockey team,” Twain explained. “Then all of a sudden there was hockey and there was just a few spectators and now tonight, look at this! This is a genuine Stanley Cup event, where everybody’s just into the spirit of it and I feel really proud.”
The 51-year-old Timmins, Ontario, native continued, saying, “I think our national sport is infectious and …Nashville has the bug.”
