The Canadian star also touched on how big of an honor it was that she had been inducted as a woman, alongside prolific songwriter Hillary Lindsey, given that it had been a few years since that had happened.

"It's been a while since a woman has been inducted into this," she wrote. "So it's pretty awesome to see not just me but Hillary Lindsey included too."

Shania expressed her gratitude upon learning of the honor

The recognition comes days after the release of the Netflix documentary spanning Shania's life and career, Not Just a Girl.

In honor of the release, the star recently looked back on the difficult process of bearing it all and sharing herself with the world, promptly making fans as emotional as it gets as they reminisce over her storied career in music.

She grew emotional as she recalled the process of bringing her story to life, writing: "Filming a documentary about myself was pretty surreal and even more so during a pandemic!

"We started this whole thing in 2020 and did a lot of interviews and prep stuff over zoom, while trying to film as much as we could during the moments when the world opened up a little more and people were able to travel."
