Shania Twain Invites Harry Styles and One Direction to Her Show in Las Vegas
Shania Twain knows how to return a favor. The country music legend was recently paid a complement by Harry Styles of the boy band One Direction on Twitter, and instead of tweeting back, Twain invited Styles and the rest of his bandmates to Las Vegas!
The original compliment was simple. Harry pointed out something that the country music world has known for years: “Shania Twain is so good.” No big deal if I (around 100 followers) were to post the same sentence, but when Styles tweets, he has an audience of nearly 17 million following his every post. In less than two days, those five words were retweeted over 52,000 times, and favorited by nearly 70,000 fans, affectionately known as “One Directioners”.
Shania was among those who caught wind of the tweet, and she replied,

It comes as little surprise that Styles is a country music fan, as Harry is one of Taylor Swift’s better known former boyfriends. One could argue that Swift modeled her career based on the path paved by Twain. Hopefully the 19-year old pop singer knows that the 48-year old music icon is happily married.
