This Canadian country singer ended off this past decade with a bang. Not only did she announce a Las Vegas residency and return to the American Music Awards stage after sixteen years, but she also got into a new passion of hers: acting. Shania Twain and KJ Apa's I Still Believe movie could be just as emotional as The Notebook

The film is based on the real-life events of the country singer Jeremy Camp. It follows an up-and-coming artist falling in love with a woman who is suffering from a terminal illness. It continues by depicting his journey with the love of his life passing away, his rise to fame, and finding his new love Adrienne. 

KJ Apa stars as Jeremy Camp while Twain plays his mother Terry Camp. 

The official trailer was released for the movie and in honour of that, Twain spoke to ET Canada about how it was on set of the romantic film.

The interviewer started off by offering Twain some Canadian support after it was revealed a few months back that Apa had been constantly pranking her. "How can I be so gullible," she told the interviewer, "KJ pranked me twice in a row three minutes apart."

Although she was bested by the Riverdale star, she admitted that she's "loving the environment." 

She went on to describe how the transition into film from being a country star was, "It's so much bigger than doing a music video" she explained. "It's less intense because music videos are a real sprint and moviemaking is definitely more of a marathon."  

She credited her love of the set life to how wonderful the movie is, “I love the fact that this movie is a true story. It’s a beautiful story." 

The Canadian celeb also recently filmed Trading Paint alongside legend John Travolta. 

Apa himself is also enjoying another round of set life, returning to the set of Riverdale to wrap up season 4 filming. 

You can catch I Still Believe in theatre on March 13, 2020.
