Shania Twain lost her record in the country music charts to Taylor Swift in the wake of praising the singer in a social media post.
Over the weekend, Twain admitted that Swift broke her record as a female artist with the most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The “That Don’t Impress Me Much” singer previously had 97 weeks topped the list, but that is no longer the record.
According to Billboard, Swift managed to reach 99 weeks number one on the charts thanks in large part to the re-releases of her previous albums, “Fearless (Taylor’s Version)” and “Red (Taylor’s Version)”. To mark the occasion, Twain shared a post with Billboard stats on Twitter and wrote a congratulatory message to the new record holder.

Although Swift is the record-holding female country artist, first place remains Garth Brooks, who holds the all-time record with 169 weeks, closely followed by Alabama with 125 and Willie Nelson with 106.
This isn’t the first time Twain has rave about Swift’s work. In 2014, she commented on Swift’s turn to pop country music, telling ET Canada that she was excited to see what the “1989” artist would do next.
