Country Music Hall of Fame - Shania exhibit opening June 30, 2017


Not sure what this means but the second picture is Shania. Maybe she is going to be announced as a 2017 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee? Or maybe they are opening an exhibit?

RE: Shania to be inducted into Country Music Hall of Fame? New Exhibit?


Well judging that Billboard and Cmt has given her high honors one would think it would be a induction? They wouldn't have a announcement for a exhibit no?

Now that I think about it, I think an exhibit is more likely. I'm pretty sure they announce Hall of Fame inductees later in the year. PLUS, if in fact #3 is Loretta Lynn, she's already in the Hall of Fame (1988).

Could Shania and Jason Aldean Be the Answers to the Hall of Fame's Guessing Game?

ABC News Radio | January 5, 2017

Starting next Monday, we’ll learn the full slate of exhibits planned for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in 2017.

Beginning Sunday night at 10 p.m. ET, the museum will share a blurred image of the focus of each exhibit via social media, with the big reveal coming the next day. They’ll continue the process all week. Judging by the artwork accompanying the initial announcement, it seems Shania Twain and Jason Aldean are definite possibilities.

Fans who participate in the guessing game through FacebookTwitterInstagram and Snapchat will have the chance to win a lifetime membership to the Hall, as well as VIP trips to the individual exhibits.

This is the first time in the museum’s half-century history that it's revealed its agenda for the entire year in advance.

Country Music Hall of Fame - Shania exhibit opening June 26, 2017


Notice the article says Shania's new album will be released in late Spring or early Summer. First time we've heard "early Summer" mentioned.

Shania Twain Exhibit Set for Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum

Showcase will include stage props, fashion and assorted memorabilia from the "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" singer

Rolling Stone | January 10, 2017

cmhof-shania-tdimm-outfit.JPG

Shania Twain will be the subject of a special exhibit at Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Opening June 26th, the showcase follows the announcement that Jason Aldean will also receive a special exhibit in 2017.

"It's an honor to be a part of the Country Music Hall of Fame exhibitions for 2017. Being able to re-visit favorite costumes, photographs and memories from my career has been a special feeling, especially as this year will see a new stage for me with a brand new album!" Twain said in a statement. "I'm very excited to have these important creative moments on display."

The exhibit will focus on past high-water marks like 1997's Come on Over, the best-selling album in history by a female artist, and Twain's massive tours. The singer most recently performed on her Rock This Country farewell tour – which, in the end, wasn't much of a goodbye. Twain's new album, for which she worked with a string of producers, including Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran), is anticipated to be released in the late spring or early summer.

Aldean's exhibit will open May 26th. The remainder of the County Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 2017 exhibit slate will be unveiled this week.

I don't know why waiting so long to release the album if it is completed.
Summer isn't great for sales Numbers, plus I can't believe she'll do a concert in April without releasing the album

So, first the album was "Spring", then it was "Late Spring", now this is the first time I have heard "Early Summer". I really hope this album does not drag out all year long! She has already confirmed that it's complete.

Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean and Loretta Lynn Receive Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibits

By Nancy Kruh | PEOPLE | January 13, 2017

As if country fans need any more reasons to visit Nashville, here are four new ones: Exhibits honoring Jason Aldean, Loretta Lynn, Shania Twain, and power couple Faith Hill and Tim McGraw will all open this year at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

In celebration of its 50th year, the museum decided to dispense with spacing out the suspense and announced its entire 2017 exhibit roster this week. In addition, a fifth exhibit, “American Currents,” will showcase the musical highlights of 2016.

The exhibit for Aldean, the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, will open May 26, just in time for the thousands who visit the city for the CMA Festival June 8-11. Artifacts will trace the Georgia native’s struggles to break into the Nashville music scene and his rise to stadium-packing star. The exhibit will run through November.

“I am extremely honored to be invited to have an exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum,” Aldean said in a statement. “That building is filled with the artists who helped create and shape country music, so to be a part of that legacy is something I am very proud of.”

On June 26, the museum will roll out its tribute to Twain, the Canada-born star whose album Come on Over is the all-time best-seller by a female artist. Since her successful 2015 tour, Twain has been at work on an album of new material, her first in 15 years, that is due out sometime this year. Her exhibit will run to June 2018.

“Being able to revisit favorite costumes, photographs and memories from my career has been a special feeling, especially as this year will see a new stage for me with a brand new album,” Twain said in a statement. “I’m very excited to have these important creative moments on display.”

Yet another exhibit, opening Aug. 25, will tell the story of the coal miner’s daughter who became a country legend. Celebrating her 85th birthday this year, Loretta Lynn is still blazing trails with her latest album, Full Circle, which is nominated for a 2017 Grammy for best country album. The Hall of Fame member’s exhibit will run to June 2018.

“I am so happy the Country Music Hall of Fame has asked me to be one of their main exhibits in 2017,” Lynn said in a statement. “… They best have a big space … I have a lot of stuff!”

The final exhibit to open in 2017 will examine the solo and dual careers of husband and wife Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. Now out on their third Soul2Soul Tour, the couple will be sharing their memorabilia with museum visitors beginning Nov. 17. Their exhibit will run to May 2018.

“American Currents (The Music of 2016)” will debut in March with stage costumes, instruments and other artifacts from such artists as Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Eldredge, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, William Michael Morgan, Maren Morris, Jon Pardi, Margo Price, and Chris and Morgane Stapleton.

Museum exhibits currently on display feature Brad Paisley, the Zac Brown Band, Alabama and Charlie Daniels.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Country music star Shania Twain spoke at the Country Music Hall of Fame in anticipation of her exhibit at the museum.

The Twain exhibit showcases her successful career.

With more than 90 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 35 million, international superstar Shania Twain remains the top-selling female country artist of all time.

What a beautiful speech!!! She moved me to tears near the end speaking about her parents not here to see where she's at, all her success. Especially her mother, who lived for her music.

And when she spoke about her collaboration with Mutt I had the feeling she's still suffering for the way the things have gone, I guess it's a scar that will never be healed, no matter what.

Nervous, excited and "NOW": A sentimental Shania Twain opens her exhibit at the Hall of Fame

ABC News Radio | June 28, 2017

Dressed in a head-to-toe, gold, bell-bottomed pantsuit, Shania Twain was especially contemplative as she spoke about her new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday evening.

Nervous and excited, Shania remembered the late Norro Wilson -- the producer who recently passed away who helped create her first album -- and pondered how far she’d come, and what she’d missed in her absence.

“What I longed for a lot was just getting reacquainted -- reunited, I guess is a better word -- with my largest group of supporters, the fans. And I realized how much I missed them,” Shania told a crowd of Music City insiders in the Hall of Fame’s legendary rotunda.

“In speeding past the nineties, and all of the craziness of that -- which was beautifully crazy -- but I never got to enjoy the moment, and I was just racing onto the next thing, racing onto the future,” she added.

Kelsea Ballerini was among those who watched as Shania described the path from where she’s been to where she is NOW -- which happens to be the title of her forthcoming record.

“On this new album NOW, I'm not rushing onto the future, I'm not running away from the past. I'm not apologizing for the past -- I'm acknowledging the crappy times and saying 'You know, I wouldn't be here without them,'” she said, referencing her 2010 divorce from her husband, legendary producer Mutt Lange.

“I don't want to relive them, but I'm not running away from them, and I'm not in a rush anymore," Shania said.  "I'm just here, I'm just now, I'm just who I am. And I'm grateful to be standing here. It's a miracle.”

“Shania Twain: Rock This Country” officially opens at the CMHoF this week and runs through the middle of next year.

Just days before a special exhibit in her honour is set to open, Shania Twain spoke at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame, gave Twain a rousing introduction that left her feeling “very moved” and “humbled”.

Twain took to the stage in sparkly gold ensemble reminiscent of a Gold Logie.

After thanking some of her most dedicated mentors, Twain told the story of how she came to Nashville as young, fast-talking girl who swore as much as a lumberjack.

“I had to get my social graces together a little bit more in order to be in the media,” Twain admits.

The evolution is clear in her calm, refined speech, and the ability to evoke such emotional responses from an audience while wearing an outfit with aggressive power shoulders.

Not one golden lock was out of place as she laughed along with the audience and shared anecdotes of her past.

In a statement released earlier this year, Twain states that she is honoured by the exhibition and is excited “to have these important creative moments on display”.

During her speech, when speaking of ex-husband and producer Robert “Mutt” Lange, who played a role in some of the creative moments mentioned, Twain managed to hold back tears.

“Finding myself alone wasn’t such a bad thing,” Twain says. “And maybe it was an opportunity to reacquaint myself with independence again.”

The exhibit, titled Shania Twain: Rock This Country, will run from June 30 to July 15 in Nashville.

With personal items, photos, awards and props on display, visitors will be taken on a journey through Twain’s past, dredging up old memories and wandering through new ones.

“Being able to revisit favourite costumes, photographs and memories from my career has been a special feeling, especially as this year will see a new stage for me with a brand new album!“

Shania Twain Previews Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum Exhibit

Rock This Country Display Opens June 30

By Lauren Tingle | CMT | June 28, 2017

Wearing a gold lamé suit, Shania Twain previewed her new Rock This Country exhibit at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday (June 27). The event attracted several members of the local music community including Kelsea Ballerini.

Opening Friday and running through July 15, 2018, the display highlights Twain’s rise to prominence with outfits and memorabilia chronicling her career. ​With more than 90 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 35 million, she remains the top-selling female country artist of all time.

When she delivered her remarks at the Hall of Fame rotunda, her first supporters in Nashville were top of mind. She recalled how Buddy Cannon, Harold Shedd and the late songwriter-producer Norro Wilson were there for her as a Canadian transplant who was new to Music Row.

“I had no parents to call to say, ‘It’s not working out,’ or ‘Can you send a bit of money?'” she said. “I had no one to fall back on. And my new family was the future and whatever I made of that future. And my beginnings were humble and very difficult, but they prepared me for standing alone.”

She was quick to add that she didn’t achieve fame and recognition without a solid team of people around her.

“By standing alone, I humbly say that it wasn’t because I got here by myself,” she said. “It’s just because I had to find a stronger person within both to stand alone in the sense that nobody was going to make the decisions for me — mostly because I didn’t want them to. And I knew that unless I was going to be strong and stand alone, that they would make those decisions for me, and I would never be what I wanted to be.”

She also said she was “very lucky” to have collaborated with her ex-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange through her 2002 album Up!

“He gave me all kinds of freedom and respected my opinions,” she said. “And I grew in that period. But when that fell away, I was alone again and I didn’t know where to begin. … So I went back to square one and figured finding myself alone wasn’t such a bad thing. And maybe it was an opportunity to reacquaint myself with independence and test that independence and get back in touch with where I started, which was making my own way in life.”

She added that with her new album Now, arriving Sept. 29, she looks forward to enjoying the present and reestablishing her relationship with her fans.

“I didn’t really appreciate the fans the way I do now,” she said. “When I’m in concert, I see them as a lifeline and as people I understand and the people that I write the music for. So on this new album Now, I’m not rushing on to the future. I’m not running away from the past. I’m not apologizing for the past. I’m acknowledging the crappy times and saying, ‘I wouldn’t be here without them.’

“My only regret in all of it is that my parents are not here to see it,” she said.

See Shania Twain Preview Her New Exhibit at Country Music Hall of Fame

Superstar talks up her career-spanning showcase at the Nashville museum

Rolling Stone | June 29, 2017 

"Shania Twain: Rock This Country," a new exhibit spotlighting the life and career of the "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" singer, opens this month at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Twain toured the showcase for the first time this week and was visibly moved by revisiting so many memories. (Click link below to watch the video.)

"I didn't appreciate it at the time because it was so fast," she tells Rolling Stone Country of the experience that was her Nineties rocket ride. "I think I need a mattress to I can stay overnight and just sit with it all."

The "Rock This Country" exhibit features costumes from Twain's famous videos, candid photos and personal items that chart her journey from small town Canadian girl to global sensation.

"It's a walk down memory lane, to sad times, happy times," she says. "Just a reflection not only on my career, but my life."

"Shania Twain: Rock This Country" will be open to the public through July 2018. The singer will release her new album, Now, on September 29th.

Shania Twain Says She's Learned to Own Her Pain and Live In the 'Now'

By Nancy Kruh | PEOPLE | July 1, 2017

What Shania Twain fan could look at that top hat, thigh-high boots and full-length black trenchcoat and not remember the sexy seductions of her “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” video?

Twain looks at the stunning outfit, and she remembers something else: pain.

“Videos, especially, are so difficult, really challenging,” the 51-year-old country icon tells PEOPLE. “Long hours – and you’re not really thinking of the glamour. I just remember the boots were so tight and my legs were all swollen at the end of it. It was just a really, really long day.”

The breathtaking costume, of course, was a “must” in the new Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit dedicated to country’s best-selling female artist – and it’s symbolic of both the stratospheric heights of her career, as well as what it took to get there.

Tight boots were the least of it. Twain also had to endure childhood poverty, the loss – at age 22 – of both parents in a car accident, a bitter divorce, and most recently, struggles with her singular voice.

Today, she’s celebrating the hard-won victory of a new single, “Life’s About To Get Good,” and an upcoming album – her first with all new (and all self-penned) material in 15 years. But don’t call it a comeback.

It is, she says, “a continuation. This is an evolution.”

Her most formative change, Twain says, is her effort to stop “living in the future” as a way to cope with stressful times.

“A lot of these things,” she says, talking about the wealth of museum artifacts that tell the story of her career, “I just rushed past them. I didn’t absorb it. I didn’t retain it. I didn’t enjoy it.”

With the new album, appropriately titled Now, she says she has transitioned to “thinking about and living with what’s happening now. It’s all about reflecting on what I’ve been through, owning what I’ve been through, not ignoring it and saying ‘forget about it, move on.’ I don’t want to forget about it. It’s made me who I am.”

Among those memories is her professional and personal partnership with Robert “Mutt” Lange. Her 14-year marriage to her songwriting collaborator and producer ended in 2010 after his alleged betrayal, and the lyrics of her new single seem to pointedly address this episode.

But Twain took pains, during a museum reception on Tuesday, to publicly thank her ex-husband in her remarks.

“I was very lucky in the ’90s to have had a collaboration with Mutt Lange,” she told about 300 guests who had gathered in the Hall of Fame rotunda, “and to develop my art as a songwriter and a recording artist. He gave me all kinds of freedom and respected that – respected my opinions – and I grew in that period.”Twain has since remarried, and she also has rediscovered what it’s like to make her career without Lange – another huge change.

“I didn’t know where to begin,” she told the crowd. “I didn’t know where to pick up. So I went back to square one and figured that finding myself alone wasn’t such a bad thing, and maybe it was an opportunity to reacquaint myself with independence again, and test that independence and get back in touch with where I started.”

Another noticeable change: Twain’s singing voice, which she’s had to regain and retune from the damaging effects of dysphonia, the result of Lyme disease. “I was very scared for a little while that I wouldn’t sing again, ever,” she tells PEOPLE. “I went through that moment, but I found a way. I found a way to do it.”

Using her voice to sing now, she says, requires lengthy warmups and physical therapy that’s “very, very difficult.”

Considering all that she’s already accomplished, why even go to the trouble?

“The reality is that I’m a proactive person,” she says. “I like to act on my thoughts. I like to materialize my ideas, and I feel compelled to share them.”

Twain says she also deeply missed what she calls her “lifeline” to fans. “I’m sharing what I do for the response,” she says. “I want them to love it. I want them to enjoy it. I want them to be inspired.”

Among her legion of fans is a member of the next generation of country artists, Kelsea Ballerini, who showed up at the museum’s reception wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the name of her hero and mentor.

Ballerini put into perspective Twain’s impact on her career and on country music. “I know what it is to be a female artist because of Shania Twain,” the 23-year-old artist tells PEOPLE. “She’s the reason that me and Taylor [Swift] and all these girls got to have the careers we’re getting to have. Shania was the first person that was so herself that it pushed every boundary with her music, with her style, with her performances, with her music videos.”

Twain, for her part, is ready to keep pushing them. “I’m still myself but I’ve changed,” she says. “I’m not going anywhere, but I will continue to grow.”

“Shania Twain: Rock This Country” opened to the public on Friday at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville and runs through July 2018. Twain’s new album is set for release on Sept. 29.
