During a stop in Toronto on June 29, they received a special visit from none other than Canadian treasure and country icon Shania Twain.

Lady A has covered Shania’s 1998 crossover hit, “You’re Still the One” on previous tour stops. So, when Shania dropped in on them to show her support, they knew they had to perform the song for her. But before doing so, the group, who famously took a brief hiatus in 2015, told her how the ballad has inspired them in more ways than one.

“That’s why we do it. Honestly, because we were like, ‘Listen man. Look how far we’ve come my baby,’” Lady A’s Charles Kelley can be heard telling Shania in the video above, “It’s all these things.”

“Even, like, the first line of the chorus: ‘You’re still the one I run to’ … We have a song called ‘I Run to You,’” Hillary Scott added, “It’s all these different parallels.”

Once Lady A took the stage, they gave a shout out to Shania, who sat in the front row alongside her husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, and “You Look Good Tour” opener Kelsea Ballerini. Hillary and Charles exchanged lyrics, while their band mate Dave Haywood played piano. Meanwhile, a clearly moved Shania passionately sang along from the audience. At one point, she got so emotional that she whispered something into Kelsea’s ear before mouthing the word “Wow.”
