Carrie Underwood is the unofficial celebrity of the Nashville Predators, and the Dallas Stars have a country singer fan of their own.

The Stars have been playing Shania Twain in their dressing room, going so far as to delay their post-morning skate media availability Thursday for her 1997 hit "You're Still the One" to finish.

Tweet from @DallasStars: Shania power. #DALvsSTL #NHL17Benn https://t.co/c8jwY5cwNw

Twain, who is from Windsor, Ontario, caught wind of this and took to Twitter on Friday to commend the Stars for their overtime win against the St. Louis Blues in Game 4 on Thursday.

Tweet from @ShaniaTwain: Heard @dallasstars have amazing taste in pre game music. Must have helped them to the win?! Incredible game guys!

Dallas captain Jamie Benn responded to Twain's light-hearted tweet.

Tweet from @jamiebenn14: @ShaniaTwain we only listen to the best! #playoffpumpupmusic

Twain got the last word in exchange and voted for Benn for the EA Sports NHL 17 cover.
