I think Shania will resist any questions about the new music. She will probably instruct her team to let the media/reporters know NOT to ask any specific questions about the new album and only ask general questions. So the red carpet show is being taped tonight, meaning we will see the taped red carpet show tomorrow?


Well, CMT is not airing a red carpet pre-show so I'm not sure how we will find out if she is asked any questions. The TV listings show "Artists of the Year" from 9:00-10:30pm. No pre-show before it.

Well, they asked her 2 questions.

1. What does it mean to be here tonight and receive the Artist of a Lifetime award?

2. I hear on social media you've been working on a new album. What can you tell us?
Shania just talked about how different and diverse the album is compared to the others. No mention of a release date.

Watch at the link below. (Skip to the final 3 minutes)

I think she looked hot, She didn't have a lot of time to talk but she did several other interviews too. It sounds like She really has put a lot of hard work into this album.  Soon enough it will come out.

She looked great and sounded genuinely excited about new music. No exciting news but maybe that's coming in the ceremony after all...

Shania shines

The night culminated in a tribute to Shania Twain, who was named "Artist of a Lifetime." Three artists paid tribute to her cross-genre, cross-generational appeal: pop hitmaker Meghan Trainor crooned "You're Still the One," Kelsea Ballerini strutted on stage to "Any Man of Mine," while soul star Jill Scott belted out "Man! I Feel Like a Woman." Twain beamed and sang along from her table from start to finish, then took the stage to accept her award.

"I don't want to get off the stage right now because I'm loving this moment," she said with a big laugh. "Sorry! I will apologize for taking so much time, but I won't apologize for this moment. I'm thrilled to be here. I love music, and I hope that it carries on for many more years in my life."

Female singers rock the CMT Artists of the Year

By The Associated Press | October 19, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country singers Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and Kelsea Ballerini honored each other and celebrated their shared successes at the CMT Artists of the Year show.

Female singers rocked the stage, geeked out over on another and showcased women's impact on country music's past, present and future during the award show held Wednesday at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, Tennessee. The show will air on CMT at 9 p.m. Eastern Thursday.

Twain, who is country music's most successful female singers, was given the artist of the lifetime award and was serenaded with a medley of her songs by female artists across three genres.

Grammy winners pop singer Meghan Trainor and R&B singer Jill Scott joined Ballerini to sing Twain's classic anthem to female strength, "Man, I Feel Like a Woman," while Twain sang along from her seat in the crowd.

Twain made her name in the mid-'90s with her big pop country songs and her music videos that combined sex appeal, female empowerment and high fashion.

"I want to thank CMT for being such a huge support all these years even in my more rebellious years in the beginning when I was probably considered controversial, but you still put me on the air," Twain said.

Ballerini, who was given the breakout artist honor, was in the middle of her speech noting all the other young female singers she has worked with when she stopped to have a fan-girl moment.

"Whoa, I am nervous," Ballerini said. "That is Shania Twain," pointing to the Grammy winner in the audience.

Underwood, who was one of the artists of the year, performed "Like I'll Never Love You Again," backed up by hit songwriters Liz Rose, Hillary Lindsey and Lori McKenna.

"Aren't we blessed?" Underwood said. "God is good and he has definitely been good to me."

Also honored as an artist of the year was Chris Stapleton, who held the crowd's attention singing a solo rendition of "Whiskey and You." He said that CMT let him fill in for Luke Bryan on the show two years ago when Bryan had to cancel because of the death of his brother-in-law.

"I filled in for Luke sitting up here singing a song I wrote called 'Drink a Beer,' and that was one of the first times anybody put me on national television," Stapleton said.

Bryan, who was also honored at an artist of the year, was teased by his tourmates Little Big Town for his recent fall from a bicycle that ended up breaking his collarbone.

"Luke, we have all made fun of you for falling off stages here and there and you can hardly hold yourself upright," said Phillip Sweet. "What in god's name makes you think you should start riding a bicycle?"

Before giving him his trophy, the country group presented him with a kid's bicycle with training wheels.

The duo Florida Georgia Line also was honored as an artist of the year and performed "May We All."

And artist of the year honoree Thomas Rhett and Swedish pop singer Zara Larsson performed a mashup of his song "Die a Happy Man," with her song "Never Forget You."

"I am honored to be here because all the artists that are honored here in this room, they didn't get here by chance, they got here by taking chances," Rhett said.

 Yes, it took place last night October 19. I guess Shania had a dress rehearsal on the 18th along with all the performers.

Shania Twain Charms at CMT's 'Artists of the Year,' Promises New Music

With unguarded enthusiasm, crossover superstar sets the tone at CMT's freewheeling party

By Joseph Hudak | Rolling Stone | October 20, 2016

With its freewheeling, Golden Globes-like vibe, CMT's Artists of the Year special is establishing itself as the most entertaining of country music's myriad self-congratulatory shows, rivaling even the network's flagship CMT Music Awards. Last night's seventh annual event – taped to air tonight – singled out Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Chris Stapleton, along with special awards for Shania Twain and Kelsea Ballerini, and succeeded in delivering something as rare as hen's teeth in image-conscious Nashville: unguarded spontaneity.

Twain, the recipient of the Artist of a Lifetime award, deserves the bulk of that credit. The crossover superstar accepted her trophy with unabashed exuberance.

"I don't want to get off the stage right now because I'm loving this moment," she said. "I love music, and I hope that it carries on for many more years in my life."

That seems likely, considering the Canadian singer confirmed a new album is on the way on the red carpet.

"I have new music coming out really soon, and I'm very excited about it. There will be a new musical chapter," Twain tells Rolling Stone Country, eager to continue a career highlighted by five Grammy wins, more than 20 million sales of a single album (1995's The Woman in Me) and sold-out tours – including last year's possibly misnamed "farewell" tour.

"I'm a songwriter, a performer, an entertainer, a singer, and I guess collectively a huge pile of hard work has gone into it all over so many years," she says, reflecting on her Artist of a Lifetime honor. "I started professionally 44 years ago. Almost my entire life has been as a professional artist in one capacity or the other. I feel like I've lived three lifetimes."

Underwood presented the trophy to Twain, with Ballerini, R&B singer Jill Scott and Meghan Trainor saluting the singer with a medley of her hits, including her signature "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" (watch a clip below). But the appreciation for Twain extended far off the stage, with artists as disparate as Scott and Florida Georgia Line reflecting on her influence.

"She pushed the boundaries, created her own lane and opened up a lot of doors for up-and-comers and different artists. She's definitely inspired us," says FGL's Tyler Hubbard.

"It's been cool to watch her go through her phases of her career, and her artistry," adds Brian Kelley. "That's real life, and that's country music."

Scott says Twain turned country music on its head with her rock-based production and unapologetically sexy image. "I love the sound of an acoustic guitar, the sound of a rock guitar. She mixed it all together, standing there foxy as hell," says Scott, "and telling country stories in this powerful form."

"I think more than anything she was so fearlessly herself and did it through fashion, through her heart and through her music," says Ballerini. "Every girl wants to be Shania Twain."

CMT's Artists of the Year also features performances by Underwood, Bryan with Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, and Stapleton, who delivered a stunning solo take on his song "Whiskey and You."

CMT Artists of the Year airs Thursday night, October 20th, at 9:00 p.m./ET.

EXCLUSIVE: Shania Twain Stuns at CMT Artists of the Year Event, Reveals How She Stays in Incredible Shape

By Antoinette Bueno | Entertainment Tonight | October 20, 2016

It's safe to say Shania Twain is looking amazing these days.

The 51-year-old singer slayed at the CMT Artists of the Year event in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday, sporting a figure-hugging black La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni jumpsuit. ET caught up with the legendary country star, who gave us her secrets to maintaining her incredible figure.

"I just have to fight eating a lot of my favorite foods like french fries and any carbohydrates, which is a real drag," Twain admits to ET's Sophie Schillaci. "I have to just try to dominate my diet with more proteins. I love vegetables anyways, so that's OK, but it's just really hard keeping the carbs down, but that's what I do! That's my discipline -- keeping the carbs down."

Twain also maintains an active lifestyle.

"I play a lot of tennis. I love horses so I'm riding all the time," she adds. "I like just staying active."

Of course, Twain definitely has a few cheat days on occasion!

"My favorite junk food is dill pickle chips. It's a Canadian thing!" she shares. "I love a lot of cheat things but I try to balance it out and reward myself when I know I've done really well. Like, after tonight, I'm gonna pig out on something really bad!"

Twain received the Artist of a Lifetime honor at the event, and was serenaded with a medley of her biggest hits by Meghan Trainor, Jill Scott, and Kelsea Ballerini. The trio brought down the house with her 1999 hit, "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!"

"It just surprised me," Twain says about being chosen to receive the prestigious award. "I didn't expect something like this so early in my life. I guess if I could say it that way, I have lived a lot so much already in my life."

"I've had such a long career already, but when I look at all the years left, and all there is still left to achieve, I guess I just thought, 'Wow!'" she adds. "I was overwhelmed I guess I could say. It was very emotional."

CMT Artists of the Year airs Thursday on CMT.

44 Years and Counting: Shania Twain Takes Stock of Her Life in Music

ABC News Radio | October 20, 2016

By this time tomorrow, lots of folks will likely be thinking that Jill Scott needs to record an entire album of Shania Twain covers. The R&B diva stole the show Wednesday night at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center, performing “Man, I Feel Like a Woman!” as part of CMT’s Artist of a Lifetime tribute to the Canadian superstar.

Best New Artist Grammy winner Meghan Trainor started the medley with “You’re Still the One,” seguing into Kelsea Ballerini singing “Any Man of Mine.”

For Shania herself, the lifetime achievement accolade got her doing some math.

“It's an honor -- nothing short of the greatest honor!” Shania said beforehand on the red carpet. “And it's made me reflect on my life and my career in my life. Because, the funny thing is that it's basically been my entire life. This is what I ended up working out, because I've been doing this professionally for 44 years. That is the majority of my life! I would never have stopped and calculated that otherwise, if it hadn't been for this lifetime award… It feels really great and I'm humbled by it, really.”

You can catch the entire 90-minute Artists of the Year special tonight at 9 p.m. ET on CMT.

She aged, yes, but she's still an amazing looking woman.
You can tell in the video posted right up here that she's really amazed by this award... There was a strange light in her eyes during this interview and I can't help but think how proud her mother would be if she was here today.

From the CMT Artists of the Year Awards Red Carpet: Honoree Shania Twain on New Music

By Alison Abbey | Parade | October 20, 2016

Country fans will tune in tonight to watch the CMT Artists of the Year Awards, where Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Kelsea Ballerini will take the stage and take home trophies. But on the red carpet before Wednesday night’s taping of the show, there was one name on everyone’s lips: Shania.

The face of mid-90s through mid-00s country, Shania Twain was in attendance to accept the Artist of a Lifetime Award. Known for her glamorous videos, spunky lyrics and incredible stage presence, Twain has been relatively quiet since the conclusion of what was thought to be her farewell Rock This Country tour last fall. But rumors surfaced that the “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” singer was working on a new album, considering an overseas tour and a looking at a possible return to her residency in Las Vegas.

From Underwood, who presented Twain with her award, to newcomers Ballerini and pop singer Meghan Trainor, who performed a Shania tribute, everyone was gushing about the revolutionary entertainer, who changed the way the world heard—and saw—country music.

Even seasoned singer/actress Jill Scott, who joined Ballerini and Trainor in tribute, said she was anxious about performing for the mega-star. “The woman has some amazing songs—powerful woman songs,” she said. “Her videos were revolutionary; for fashion, for makeup. Her locations were awesome. She looks stunning [tonight]. So I’m a little daunted. I’m nervous.”

Twain, who reveled in the spotlight and unapologetically remained onstage for a longer acceptance speech than most award shows would allow, told the crowd she didn’t want to leave because “I am loving this moment.”

On the carpet, she shared some insights into her decision to come out of perceived retirement.

“I never said that I was going to stop recording,” Twain teased. “And there’s a lot of other countries that I have not toured yet, so I will finish that chapter, but the new music is imminent. I’m pretty much putting the icing on the cake and doing the final touches. This has been my project since the tour ended; it’s been my focus.”

But will this new album sound like classic Shania or serve as a sort of Shania 2.0? Twain says it’s a little of both.

“There’s a lot of variety. There might be more variety on this album than on any of my other albums,” she said. “There will be some surprises on there, and yeah, there are a couple things that are maybe more the classic ‘me’ of the past. I think it’s going to be very recognizable.”

Despite the variety, Twain says listeners can expect one constant: Her voice.

“I wrote all the songs, so there’s a continuity there, emotionally, even though the songs are all very different,” she said. “There’s a common thread in the emotion and in the voice. No matter what stylistically jumps around, the voice is what seems to tie it all together.”

Watch the CMT Artists of the Year Awards tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

Shania Is Wowed and Carrie Gets Teary at the CMT Artist of the Year Special

By Eileen Finan | PEOPLE | October 20, 2016

For a woman who says she’s left the stage behind, Shania Twain sure seemed happy in the spotlight at the taping of the CMT Artists of the Year special.

After a powerful tribute featuring Jill Scott, Meghan Trainor and Kelsea Ballerini singing a trio of her biggest hits, including “Man, I Feel Like a Woman,” Twain, who last year wrapped what she called her final tour, claimed her Artist of a Lifetime trophy with a wide grin and a shimmy, declaring, “Wow! Kelsea, Jill, Meghan, holy … bleep it!” 

Thanking the Nashville crowd for the honor, Twain recalled her early days playing in bars — “and some strip clubs!” — before becoming the best-selling female country artist of all time. The singer took her time at the mic, joking of her extended speech, “I don’t want to get off the stage right now because I’m loving this moment!”

There was a lot of love for Twain amid the night’s performers and fellow nominees. “She’s banging!” R&B star Scott told PEOPLE before the show. “When I saw Shania on the scene with her fantastic outfits and her amazing voice and those incredible lyrics, I was so into it. I’m still into it!”

Twain told PEOPLE that she takes her status as a powerful female performer seriously. “It’s a compliment, and it’s almost a responsibility,” she says. “Not that I have to be this kick-ass woman all the time, but I want to represent myself well and my hope is to impact people in a positive way.”

“Shania just made music bigger,” says Ballerini, who took home honors herself as CMT’s Breakout Artist of the Year, presented to her by Arsenio Hall, her co-host on ABC’s Greatest Hits show this summer. Hall introduced the rising star as “my baby sister.”

The night’s other Artist of the Year honorees included Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton (performing a spare and emotional ‘Whiskey and You”) and Carrie Underwood, who wiped away tears as she took the stage after a video tribute that featured the singer with her 19-month-old son, Isaiah. 

“Aren’t we blessed? God is good — he’s definitely been good to me,” Underwood told the crowd. “Oh man, I don’t know why I’m getting teary eyed…I think it was seeing my little guy on the screen.” 

The 90-minute 2016 CMT Artist of the Year special airs tonight at 9 ET on CMT.

Shania Twain Celebrates Her “Best Friend” at 2016 CMT Artists of the Year

Superstar Praises Performance by Kelsea Ballerini, Jill Scott and Meghan Trainor

CMT | October 20, 2016

Shania Twain was the center of attention at the 2016 CMT Artists of the Year celebration, but what got her attention was a powerhouse performance by Kelsea Ballerini, R&B vocalist Jill Scott and pop star Meghan Trainor.

The three vocalists sang a medley of three of Twain’s biggest hits — “Still the One,” “Any Man of Mine” and “Man, I Feel Like a Woman” — during the special that premiered Thursday night (Oct. 20).

Twain received the biggest honor of the evening — CMT Artist of a Lifetime presented by RAM Trucks.

“Wow,” she said following the musical tribute. “Kelsea, Jill, Meghan … holy beep it! Really, that is the truest complement ever to hear my songs sung by such exceptional vocalists and performers. Thank you, girls. It’s wonderful. It made me cry the whole time. It’s ridiculous. But, anyway, I’m flattered.

“I’m glad that it made me emotional. I’m glad when my emotions come out. Music does that to me. I rely on music for that. It’s my best friend, in that sense. Music has always been my best friend. I love dogs … but for me personally, obviously, music is my best friend.”

Twain went on to elaborate on the importance of music in her everyday life and the lives of her fans.

“It never judges me,” she said of music. “It’s always there when I need it. When I need a laugh, it’s there. When I need a cry, it’s there. When I just want to dance, it’s there. When I want to be romantic, it’s there. It’s those emotions that I want to share with all of you. It’s why I live for music.

“First of all, I thank all the fans out there who live for music, too. It takes music lovers to understand the passion that we have as artists, and our job is to try to translate that to you.”

Twain is clearly aware of the role music videos have played in her career.

“I want to also thank CMT for being such a huge support all these years — even in my more rebellious years, in the beginning when I was probably considered controversial,” she said. “But you still put me up on the air. And I think you for that.”

As for her Artist of a Lifetime award, Twain reflected on her life’s journey.

“When I think of years, lifetime, my music life’s been very long actually already, I feel,” she said. “I’ve been a singer, an entertainer, for over 44 years. It’s a pretty long time. I started very young.”

She laughed and added, “I started really, really young, actually. My mother was my first booking agent and my first manager. She was very good at it. She booked me in bars and some strip clubs and things like that that would not be acceptable today. … So it’s wherever my mother could get me booked. Anyway, I’m very grateful to her and for that start.

But it wasn’t until much later that I got to know all you fans and the industry and CMT. You guys picked up where my mother left off. I thank you very much for your support and for being …. I don’t know … I would say being my parents through my adult years in this industry. It’s such a hard industry and takes so much work.”

Twain obviously knew she was among friends during the special.

“I just feel that I don’t want to get off this stage at this minute because I’m loving this moment,” she laughed.

“Sorry. I will apologize for taking so much time, but I won’t apologize for this moment. I’m thrilled to be here. I love music and I hope it carries on for many more years in my life.”

Shania Twain takes a bold step as her own woman in the studio

By Hunter Kelly | Rare Country | October 21, 2016

Shania Twain stepped back into the spotlight at the CMT Artists of the Year event, where she was named 2016’s Artist of a Lifetime. Her three biggest albums — “The Woman in Me,” “Come on Over” and “Up” — have sold millions of millions of copies around the world, but she had her ex-husband, producer Mutt Lange, by her side for those projects. This time, she’s got the final say on what the lyrics say and how the music sounds.

Says Shania, “I’ve had to learn a lot about independence on this album. It’s been a lot of hard work, but the most fun hard work I think I’ve ever done so far.”

While we’ve got our fingers crossed for some fun, uptempo moments from Shania, fans should be prepared for a variety of styles to show up on the project.

“Well, this album is more diverse than any other album I’ve ever done,” Shania says. “Not that I’ve done a ton of albums, but it’s the most diverse of the albums I’ve done. There’s a lot of variety there, but what I’ve learned about myself is as the songwriter of all the songs, the emotions and the voice ties it all together as one artist.”

There’s no word on when Shania might be releasing her new music, but you can bide your time by picking up all four of Shania’s studio albums, which were just released on vinyl for the first time ever.

Shania Twain Returns to the Red Carpet After Two Years

By Khalea Underwood | Us Weekly | October 20, 2016

Welcome back! Shania Twain made her return to the red carpet after two long years, at the CMT Artists of the Year Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, October 19, where she won the Artist of a Lifetime trophy.

The “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” singer, 51, looked dynamite in a long-sleeve, wide-leg black jumpsuit with a front cutout, silver bangles and a mirrored silver clutch. She wore her dark blonde hair in teased, tousled waves, noticeably shorter than her shoulder-length locks in a September 20 Instagram post.

Even though we’ve seen her on tour, Twain looked just as good in her fancier duds as when we saw at her last formal event — the 3rd Annual Bliss Ball in Toronto, where she wore a sleek black dress with sheer sleeve details.

On the CMT carpet, the Grammy Award winner told Us Weekly that her husband, Frederic Thiebaud, is one of the reasons why she’s glowing. “He spearheads a lot of that confidence. It's not that I depend on him to give me that confidence, but I do believe that my husband sort of confirms things for me,” she revealed. “He's a man, so I want a man's perspective. When I'm feeling good about something and then I get his vote of approval, then I'm feeling good.”

A healthy lifestyle also helps Twain look and feel good too. “I feel the sexiest and the most confident when I'm fit,” she continued. “It's not about size or anything like that. I just need to feel fit and energetic. When I'm treating myself well, I feel my best. I feel like crap when I eat crap. I think it’s more about self care, which I do more of these days as I get older.”

Shania is in the November 7, 2016 issue of HELLO! Canada. There's nothing new. Just the same quotes we've read from the CMT Artists Of The Year red carpet.

Kelsea Ballerini on Her Shania Moment

"Is She Singing My Song?"

By Alison Bonaguro | CMT | November 16, 2016

When Shania Twain released her 1995 hit “Any Man of Mine,” Kelsea Ballerini was only 18 months old.

I know, right?

Generation gaps like that one just don’t seem to matter when it comes to music, though.

That’s why, when Ballerini saw Twain singing along to her song “Peter Pan” during the recent CMT Artists of the Year special, it was an unbelievable moment of a lot mutual appreciation, and a little bit of fangirling.

“I saw it while I was singing,” Ballerini told me when she was in Chicago last week. “I was like, ‘Is she singing my song?’”

“I went up to her afterward and said, ‘Shania, my name is Kelsea, and I got to honor you tonight with ‘Any Man of Mine.’ I just want to say thank you for being such a strong female for me to look up to.”

Twain quickly stopped Ballerini to assure her she knew exactly who she was by telling her, “Kelsea, ‘Peter Pan’ is one of my favorite songs.”

“How do I even respond to that?” Ballerini told me. “It was one of those great moments for me as a songwriter and new artist. And to have her encourage me was incredible. I needed that.”

At the CMT Artists of the Year ceremony, Ballerini won the Breakout Artist Award, and Twain was honored as Artist of a Lifetime.
