Shania Twain's "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" may be even more relevant today than when she wrote and recorded the late '90s hit.
During this exclusive teaser of the CMT Hot 20 segment '90s Country Forever, artists like Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Dustin Lynch, Cassadee Pope and RaeLynn love on Twain's most famous song. Then the singer herself explains why it's still needed today.
"If you're a woman getting into country music, you've got to kick those doors down," Twain says, closing this Taste of Country premiere. "A song like 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman' is an expression and example. This song is an exclamation mark."
Lynch and Morris start this clip by extolling the good-time nature of the 1997 track from Twain's Come on Over album. Later, RaeLynn talks about how Twain has always been an advocate for strong women.
"I've always loved what she stood for," Pope adds. "She's all about female empowerment and saying things that are kind of bold for a woman to say."
Ballerini feels Twain pushed the boundaries. It's all set against flashback clips of the star performing her hit. If you forgot about her late '90s and early '00s braids, you'll get plenty of them here. You'll also get eighty great seconds of a woman totally in charge of her career and crowd. It is absolutely empowering.
Later this month the various '90s Country Forever clips will be pieced together into one episode for a CMT special that airs at 8AM ET on Dec. 22 and Dec. 23.
