Tua Tagovailoa shooting his shot with Shania Twain
Tua Tagovailoa is proving himself to be a man of culture before even playing a single game in the NFL.
In a video feature this week, the Miami Dolphins quarterback revealed that his favorite guilty pleasure singer was country music icon Shania Twain. He even went so far as to call Twain his celebrity crush.
“Shania, if you watch this, from this moment on, please message me back,” Tagovailoa added.

As luck would have it, Tagovailoa got his response from Twain in a tweet on Sunday, and she seemed very flattered. The former Alabama star promptly responded by shooting his shot and quoting one of Twain’s famous songs.
“You’re still the one” @ShaniaTwain

There may definitely be a bit of an age difference between Tagovailoa (22) and Twain (54), but that is certainly no deterrent for him here. While Twain has popped up in sports circles before in joking contexts, she very much appears to have a genuine fan in the rookie signal caller.
