As one of the most successful solo female artists to ever hit the music industry, you would think country singer Shania Twain would be immune to stage fright. Unfortunately for Twain, that is definitely not the case.
In an interview with talk show host of The Late Late Show, James Corden, the singer hysterically revealed one of her earliest run-ins with stage fright when she was only 16 years old.
“When I was a teenager I got up on stage in front of my peers, you know a bunch of teenagers,” Twain shared. “And I literally peed myself…It was terrible! I’ve been fighting it ever since.”
While this event would easily scare most people away from pursuing a career in music, the singer wasn’t about to give up on her dreams and quickly devised a plan of action.
“I was quite quick on this,” she continued. “Thankfully I had a glass of water at my feet and I knocked it over to hide the puddle…And on top of that I was wearing a skirt so I got away with it.”
Glad she didn’t let her fears get in the way of chasing her dreams! The 51-year-old singer has been making major strides in reviving her music career, even set to headline Stagecoach Festival later this month alongside fellow country singers Dierks Bentley and Kenny Chesney.
