Shania Twain was my favorite female artist as a young teenager,and the only country artist I listened to at that youn and very limited scope of music interest. I loved her sassy lyrics,style and boldness in the face of musical critics who absolutely believed she was single handedly destroying country music. On the conterary,the reason I listen to country music today may be because of Shania Twain. I waited for years to hear that she would be coming out with new music. I heard false starts and rumors. Celine Dion came back after her Striesand like “retirement”. Whitney had the most overrated and unsuccessful “comeback” in all of pop music history,and still no Shania.
When it came across my newsfeed on Facebook that she had published her memoirs “From this Moment On”,I went like a faithful fan and bought the book brand new. There is a slow brewing comeback in the works,with her new television show that thank heavens,is not a reality series for voyouristic drama feeders but instead an inspiring series much like the one Michael J. Fox had a few years ago,her memoirs and numerous spaced out television appearances.
I have been made laughed at for believing Shania can come back. The midriff baring pop pricess of country is now divorced and healing from emotional battering,how could it ever be the same? Well I dont think it will be,but I do think it will be a success,and it will be much more successful then Whitney and even Celine Dions. Country music fans are pretty faithful and we recognize what is real. Shania,for all the glamour poppy lyrics,has always been real and made us believe that any dream is attainable…and now she is showing that even when our personal worlds fall apart we can pick up the peices and make a new picture. I dont know what the new album will sound like but I’m backing her as I know all of her fans are.
