Taylor Swift would be the first to tell you she's a huge fan of Shania Twain.

In fact, when Twitter informed Twain that Swift had broken one of the many records she holds, she celebrated Swift's accomplishment with a tweet of her own.

Swift's current album "Red (Taylor's Version)" has been No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart for the past seven weeks. Late last month, a Twitter account called The Swift Society announced that Swift has now spent more weeks at No. 1 on that chart than any other female artist -- a total of 98.

Twain had spent 97 weeks on top overall.

On Thursday, Twain retweeted that tweet and commented, "Let's Go Girls!!!! Proud of you @taylorswift13. Historical records are meant to be made and then broken. The baton is meant to be passed on to new generations."

She continued, "Unstoppable young female country artists are [fire] in spite of the hurdles #trailblazers."

In September 2021, Swift shared a TikTok to show how much she respects Twain. Watch it here.
