Shania Twain is about to launch her film career with the release of the movie Trading Paint, co-starring acting legend John Travolta. Readers can press play above to watch the trailer for the upcoming film, which tells the story of a racing veteran and his son who overcome personal and professional issues to triumph on the track and at home.

“I learned so much," Twain tells Sounds Like Nashville. "It’s a whole new chapter of my life I wasn’t expecting because it was really last minute. I wasn’t expecting it at all, so I love the spontaneity of it. That’s why I dove into it, because I didn’t have too much time to think about it.”

The singer-turned-actress says that having Travolta's seasoned on-camera experience was a life-saver, making her first acting role a pleasure. Acting is something she says she hopes to do more of in the future.

“I enjoyed it and I enjoyed getting to know John," Twain says. "He’s a very sweet person. I’ve known him for several years now just on short little chats, but now [working on] this movie, we got to know each other a little bit better. I’m just lucky to have this film experience because he’s been very nurturing. He coached me through it."

Twain appeared in the 2004 feature film I Heart Huckabee for a brief cameo as herself, and has starred in numerous music videos, but Trading Paint marks her first official acting role in a movie. The film was filmed in Alabama in 2017, and is set for release on Feb. 22, 2019.
