The Chuckwagon Cafe in Diamond Valley was recently paid a visit by a country superstar.

Shania Twain stopped in for a meal on Monday, June 3.

Susan Green, who served Twain's table, says she didn't even realize she was among country music royalty for a good while and started by making conversation as usual.

"As I'd been serving tourists all day, we kind of just started with 'Where are you from? What are you doing in the Foothills? Tell me about it.' And then I, very arrogantly said, 'Do you want to know why we're famous?' And I started talking about our historic Cowboy Trail and all the ranchers we represent."

Green recalls the moment when it finally clicked.

"We got through dinner service, as per usual, and got to our dessert selections. That beautiful lady turned, smiled, and said 'I would love a piece of banana cream pie,' and in that instance, I realized, 'Oh my goodness, I'm serving Shania Twain.'"

Green says it was a delightful interaction all around.

"The whole time she was just a gracious, lovely guest. We chitchatted and visited, and talked food, the whole time it was just lovely visiting."

Toward the end, Green slipped the table a note asking if Twain would be okay with posing for a picture with the Chuckwagon crew, to which she graciously obliged.

Having worked at the Chuckwagon for nearly 20 years, this wasn't Green's first celebrity encounter, having served actresses Glenn Close and Robin Wright at the same table where Twain sat.

This latest encounter isn't one Green will soon forget.

"That little lady held up Canada with grace and dignity, and we should all be so proud of her. I just wanted to wrap my arms around her, you can tell she's such a hard-working girl... I can't say enough about her because she was lovely and we're all still vibing from her being in the room."
