Shania Twain falls, Sheryl Crow flashes panties at CMT awards

June 9, 2011 |  9:50 am

Shania Twain and Sheryl Crow both goofed at the CMT Music Awards This post has been corrected. See the note below for details.

Shania Twain fell Wednesday night at the CMT Music Awards, stumbling into the same snafu spotlight Sheryl Crow stepped into earlier when she showed off more than she'd planned while performing with Kid Rock.

But both ladies recovered nicely from their respective schadenfreude moments in Nashville.

Shania Twain

Crow wore a short white skirt that gave her minimal coverage while sitting atop a stool during her performance of "Collide." But when the singer moved on to the dancing portion of the duet, her underwear stole the spotlight. 

"People all over America are tweeting that I was wearing a really short skirt when I sang with Kid Rock and that when I got up off the stool, I showed my underwear," she said later in the show while presenting an award with Sara Evans

"Well, at least you were wearing underwear," Evans said.

"'Cause I am good, clean family entertainment," the 49-year-old quipped back.

But Crow wasn't the only one with issues. Twain seemingly forgot how to use her feet when walking out to present the award for best male performance. Watch the clip below.

However, the 45-year-old "I Feel Like a Woman" singer, who recently landed a two-year solo residency at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, took the tumble in stride. In a video posted on her site, she assured fans that she wasn't hurt "making a complete fool" of herself. 

"I don't need a stunt double because I do my own stunts," she said.

Touche, ladies. Click the pic for more photos from the CMT Music Awards.

For the record, 12:15 p.m. June 9: An earlier version of this post said Sheryl Crow was 45; in fact, she is 49. Thanks to commenter Dave Bruce for pointing out our snafu.
