During their June 22 concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Harry Styles and Kacey Musgraves teamed up to cover Shania Twain’s 1997 hit “You’re Still the One.”
Styles introduced the songs as “one of my personal favorites” before Musgraves launched into the opening verse. Styles joined in on the chorus as the crowd swayed and sang along with the timeless love song. It’s clear that the two love sharing the stage, especially while singing a mutual favorite.
As artists who are adept at blending a variety of musical styles, the tour mates couldn’t have chosen a better artist to cover than Twain, who seamlessly merged pop and country with her smash hit albums The Woman in Me and Come on Over.
Both Styles and Musgraves have named Twain as a musical influence. Last year the “Sign of the Times” singer called Twain his biggest music and fashion inspiration.
Musgraves was equally shaped by the icon. Earlier this year she told Billboard that Twain was among her main musical inspirations, along with the Dixie Chicks.
“Growing up in East Texas, some of my other all-time favorites were Shania Twain, Lee Ann Womack, and Jo Dee Messina — women who nailed that late ’90s/early 2000s pop-country sound and giantly helped shape my musical sensibilities,” Musgraves said.
This marks the first time Styles and Musgraves have performed onstage together. Hopefully the two will join forces again soon for another pop-country classic.
Musgraves has been supporting Styles on tour since earlier this summer. At a recent tour stop in Texas, Musgraves delivered a spellbinding synth-pop cover of ’90s boyband NYSYNC’s “Tearin’ Up My Heart.”
Musgraves will perform at Farm Aid on Sept. 22 in Connecticut. She’ll then kick off her Oh What a World Tour in Norway on Oct. 13.
