Avril Lavigne Honors Shania Twain With ‘No One Needs to Know’ Performance at ACM Honors: Watch

During the recent ACM Honors, held in Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, recipient of the ACM Poet’s Award Shania Twain was celebrated by several artists, e.g Kelsea Ballerini and Avril Lavigne.

Twain, who has seen three of her albums certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America, co-wrote the bulk of her own hits, including “Any Man of Mine,” “From This Moment On” and “That.” Don’t impress me much.” Twain was one of two recipients of the ACM Poet’s Award, as well as Sonny Throckmorton (known for writing songs including Merle Haggard’s “The Way I Am” and George Strait’s “The Cowboy Rides Away”).

“Girlfriend” and “Complicated” hitmaker Lavigne — who, like Twain, is from Canada — honored Twain with a performance of Twain’s 1996 song “No One Needs to Know,” a No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay Charts.

“You should have gone into country music,” Twain told Lavigne after the performance. Lavigne also paid homage to Twain’s signature leopard outfit from her “That Don’t Impress Me Much” video by donning her own hooded leopard print ensemble for the performance.

Twain’s previous ACM Awards honors include Best New Female Vocalist and Album of the Year (for The woman in me) win, as well as taking home the coveted ACM entertainer of the year honor in 2000.

Others celebrated during this year’s ACM Honors included Miranda Lambert (honored with ACM Triple Crown honor), Morgan Wallen (Milestone Award winner), HARDY (ACM Songwriter of the Year) and Chris Stapleton (the winner of the ACM spirit award).

The ACM Honors airs Tuesday (September 13) on Fox. Watch Lavigne’s tribute to Twain in the video above.
