Grey Cup/"NOW" media tour


Shania Twain dishes on life, music and making a comeback

By Annabelle Olivier | Global News | November 24, 2017

After a 15-year hiatus between albums, Shania Twain is making a comeback with the release of her fifth full-length studio record, Now. 

Despite the long break, Twain is still the top-selling female country artist of all time with more than 90 million albums sold worldwide.

In a candid interview with Global’s Laura Casella, the queen of country pop opened up about the challenges she’s faced and what has kept her going.

The last time Twain was in Montreal was in 2015, after embarking on what she thought was her farewell tour.

“I don’t think I will ever give up being involved in music or creativity, but there was a time when I was sure that I wouldn’t sing again,” she said, adding that it was her family who encouraged her not to give up.

“I was really quite sure I was going to have to accept that I wouldn’t get my voice back after some side effects from Lyme disease, but they encouraged me to try and try again.”

Despite the rigors of life on the road, Twain said the experience of going on a farewell tour was eye-opening.

“I’m not going to take for granted that I’ll be able to do this forever anymore,” Twain said.

While Twain admits to being a private person, she said she didn’t hold anything back in her new album, writing all 16 songs herself.

“I am just at a point in my life where I’m less guarded about sharing things that I feel are important to share,” she said.

For Twain, the music is about creating connections and helping others. She said she understands that life in the spotlight means being a role model.

“[I share things] that I think I that I would appreciate others sharing with me, things that would help me see through difficult times, or to find inner courage,” she said.

“It’s really more me sharing my experience with others, knowing I’m not the only one in the world to go through these things, that there are many people out there that might even be looking to me for encouragement.”

Asked about staging a comeback, Twain insisted that letting go of fear was key.

“I think it’s very important to stick with your plan and not compromise your plan for the sake of fear,” she said.

“Fear — you’ve got to let go of that.”

Leaving self-doubt behind is a message she said she hopes will resonate with other parents, especially women, looking to get their careers back on track after having children.

“Parenting is such a hard job and we learn so much through all the different things we do in our lives,” she said.

“I think we apply all these other things that we do in our domestic lives, for example, to our professional lives. I think we are better at our professions because we are so diverse.”

Twain will be bringing her new album on the road in 2018. The new record may surprise fans looking for more “classic Shania” — or not, according to the artist.

“What’s typical Shania? I don’t even really know myself what classic Shania is,” she quipped.

“I think it depends. I think it’s in the hands of the listener and the fans and it means something to different people, to different sexes and different ages.”

Twain will be taking her show on the road in 2018, but for those who can’t wait that long, she’ll be bringing her A-game to this weekend’s Grey Cup in Ottawa, performing at the halftime show.

While she couldn’t say exactly what was in store for fans, she couldn’t hide her excitement.

“I’m ready and looking forward to it,” she said.

“It will be a great reunion with Canadians. I love sport and I’ll be there with bells on.”

Shania Twain Talks Prepping To Play The Grey Cup, Overcoming Fear To Live In The Moment On Stage

By Rachel West | ET Canada | November 24, 2017

Shania Twain is getting ready to embark on a cross-country tour in 2018, but first, she’s hitting the nation’s capital to headline Canada’s biggest sporting event of the year, the Grey Cup Halftime Show in Ottawa.

The singer tells ET Canada’s Roz Weston, she’s bracing herself for the cold this Sunday. “I’m going to dress right for it. You know, maybe I won’t go out there in a ski-doo suit but…,” she jokes. “I’ll try to be more glamorous than that, you know. But yeah, you gotta be warm otherwise your teeth start chattering. I mean, it depends how cold it is! You never know… maybe it will be a milder day anyway but I’m prepared. I’m getting ready for a colder day.”

Released in September, Twain’s first full-length album in 15 years, Now, landed at #1 on the Billboard 200, making her the first female country artist to top the chart in three years. While she’s celebrating the achievement, even a pro like Twain admits she sometimes forgets the words to her songs while performing live but it’s all about living in the moment.

“I’ve already been through the Rock This Country tour and I know that I wasn’t perfect every night,” she tells ET Canada. “And sometimes I forget the words and stuff like that! And it just happens but I think it’s all part of what’s going on in the moment, and the fans are in it with you as well. And I don’t feel that pressure so much in a live tour situation.

“I feel my stamina and giving it equal energy every night is more important than being perfect vocally, or always remembering the words perfectly.”

The singer reveals she’s moved past the performance anxiety of her early days and the fear that came with forgetting her lyrics while on stage.

“I used to have a lot of anxiety about forgetting the words,” she reveals. “Not so much now cuz I use more of teleprompters and stuff like that. Before that was even really available or I didn’t even know it was available. I would forget words and I would stress about it. I would lose sleep over it. I would have nightmares about that, you know?”

Twain says she’s accepted that it’s not all about delivering a perfect performance for herself. Instead, it’s about pleasing the fans and making sure they have a good time at her live shows.

“But vocally I’ve also had to come to a point of acceptance that I’m not always going to have the control that I want over my voice. But I’m not going to let that get in my way and I’m going to go out and do it anyway,” Twain says. “As long as the fans go home happy and they can live with my imperfections then I think that we’re all good.”

Shania Twain talks 'whirlwhind' of sexual assault allegations: 'The floodates have opened'

By Chris Mejaski | eTalk | November, 24, 2017

Shania Twain has long used her voice to connect with fans through themes of empowerment, and she says she's encouraged to see women currently finding their voices when it comes to difficult discussions of sexual assault and harassment.

"It's just so overdue. Because the scenario's ancient," she tells our Danielle Graham in a new interview from Montreal, where she's preparing for the Grey Cup halftime show.

While a multitude of women have come forward in recent weeks with stories of alleged sexual assault by those in Hollywood power positions, Twain says the frustration has surely been building over a long time. 

"So the floodgates have opened and we're feeling this whirlwind of expression about it. Which is important. It's just gotta come out. Everybody's gotta just come out from their fears. And that's a lot of what's prevented women from speaking out before. Fear."

The importance of treating women right is front and centre in Shania's song If You Wanna Touch Her, Ask! off her 1997 album Come On Over. But she tells Danielle her initial idea for the song was about a more specific act of indiscretion, and could have been called If You Wanna Touch Her Ass.

"I've always just been really offended by that, and it's usually the butt [that men grope]," she explains. "Because it's a discreet way to touch a woman and she has no defense because she can't see it coming. And there's nothing more insulting. "

While it's important to push through fear and speak out, Twain acknowledges the magnitude of courage it would take for a victim to do so.

"Because there are so many people that are affected by what you have to say," she says. "But you know what... it's not your problem. You gotta be able to say what you gotta say... If you're someone that's been abused, your problem is not being able to share it. That's a real problem. So I'm just glad this is happening."

Pushing through fear is advice she tries to follow herself, she says, even when it's difficult.

"Like anybody, I'm not immune to lack of confidence, or things that terrify me... I just push myself to face them. Otherwise they just eat you up and they stop you in your tracks," she says.

Wanting to share that message with others, she wrote Swinging With My Eyes Closed, for her hit album Now, released in September.

"Just because you don't know what's around the corner, or you can't see what's next, you can't let that stop you," she says. "You've got to have faith in your own strength... you gotta be fearless. As scary as it is, you just gotta take the plunge.

'Change is a relief': Shania Twain on surviving tough times and always looking to the future

CBC Radio | March 16, 2018

Shania Twain has not only survived the music business to become one of the biggest-selling artists of all time, she has also battled her way through childhood abuse, a very public divorce, the loss of her voice and Lyme disease. Miraculously, she still came out on top.

Twain is nominated for two Junos: artist of the year, and album of the year for her latest release Now. She talked to Tom Power about that new album, getting through tough times, and always looking to the future. Here is some of what she had to say.

On the name of her new album

I have an anxiousness about staying still. Staying still to me is too vulnerable of a place to be. You never want to be stuck anywhere. So I'm always moving forward — and my challenge is to not rush ahead, to actually enjoy where I am, and not miss a lot of great things, which was my tendency for many, many years. So that's another reason why I call the album Now.

On losing her voice, and being unable to sing for seven years

I really believed I would never sing again. It was terrible. Terrible. For me singing is a sense. It would be like losing your sight or your hearing. For me that's what it was like. And I was grieving. It was a real loss.

On whether she tells her son about her difficult past

I don't want to burden him with the challenges of my life. I don't want to be ho-hum either, or one of those parents who say, 'When I was your age things were really sh*tty and you've got it made.' I don't really want to burden him with feeling guilty just because his life is better than mine when I was growing up. But I do like to share with him who I am — and my experiences made me who I am.

On how her new album is the most personal she has ever written

I put myself through a lot of emotional turmoil when I write music and certainly to date it's the most personal music I've ever written. … But it was very necessary for me to go through that process of reviewing and analyzing and working through, whether it was things from my childhood or things as a parent or things from my divorce. They're all in there.

On getting through tough times

You know there were many, many phases of my life that were day-by-day emotional and mental survival, and I would think to myself, 'Alright, well today is the worst. But thank God for tomorrow. And tomorrow will be will be different. Even if it's not better, it will be different.' Change is a relief.
