Swift recently took to TikTok to honor one of her biggest inspirations in a new social media trend called “Mama Said.” The TikTok challenge encourages users to use the song “Mama Said” by Lukas Graham to share something they have done that goes against the grain and the person who inspired them to do so. For Swift — it was turning her music from Country to Pop.

Swift’s initial video shows her praising Shania Twain as she writes “Country girls can’t go Pop,” before shrugging and cutting to a photo of Twain, who saw crossover success in 1997.

Shania shocked Swift with a response to the video, sharing her own inspiration for going Pop - Dolly Parton.

Swift, shocked by Twain’s response, shared a reaction video of her watching Shania pay tribute to Dolly by writing “A QUEEEEN.”

Sounds like Dolly is up next — wonder who she would honor!
