Shania Twain may be an indisputable country queen, but what she really wants to do is rock. The “Giddy Up!” singer lived out her ultimate rock and roll fantasy on Saturday (Oct. 7) when she hopped up on stage with the Foo Fighters at the Austin City Limits Festival to help the band rip through the 2005 In Your Honor classic ” Best of You.”

“This was one off the bucket list for me! Firstly thank you to @foofighters for inviting me on stage – you are all so generous and ridiculously cool,” Twain wrote on X (formerly Twitter). “I am a huge rock fan.” She also noted in another comment that despite her day job, head-banging is in her blood.

“My first band was a rock band, my first big producer was one of the worlds renowned rock producers, me and my son like to rock out [crying laughing emoji],” Twain wrote alongside a picture of her posing backstage with the Foos, in reference to her early ’80s rock band Longshot and her former husband/producer, Robert John “Mutt” Lange. “Totally worth the adrenaline fuelled run from my stage to yours Dave Grohl – you are a true friend and talent.”

Twain had played her own headlining set at ACL earlier in the day and after Grohl howled his way into the first verse of “Best of You,” Twain — rocking flaming red hair, a sleeveless silver top and rhinestone-studded white jean shorts with matching cowboy boots — came out on stage and hugged Grohl from behind before lending a hand on the song’s chorus; watch fan video of the performance here.

Last week, the Foos announced the dates for a 2024 run of U.S. stadiums, which will kick off with the first of two shows at New York’s Citi Field on July 17. The 12-date run of major league stadiums will also hit Fenway Park in Boston (July 21), before moving to Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, PA (July 23), Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati (July 25) and Minneapolis’ Target Field (July 28); the tour is scheduled to wind down on August 18 at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
