Music Video for "Soldier"


Shania's segments in the music video were filmed during her visit to Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt on April 19.

I was hoping for a REAL music video with Shania singing, etc. Not just various clips of service men & women. Plus Shania is hardly in it.

 I agree. I am disaapointed with it. I guess, many other people too, otherwise why have they deleted it?

I have no idea why the video was removed. Strange! Maybe it's some legality issue with some of the troops featured in the video. I don't know.

Omg. I am in tears. Wow. Impressed with this video. Simple, real, love and compassion. Not just patriotic but a well put together video. I hope it goes out and released soon. The 4th of July is right around the corner.

Just before midnight on July 1, an edited version of the music video was re-uploaded to YouTube. This version includes clips from Shania's concert performance of "Soldier".

So it appears to be Shania didn't like the previous version?

i think the previous version is problematic. The director mixed the scenes of the American troop and Canadian Troop together. Shania made a visit to a Canadian military base and shot the video. However, an American flag is flying at the end of the video. It is a big mistake.

It’s a better version. I like this one compare to the first one.

Including the live footage feels like they kind of rushed to put something together. It doesn't really flow for me. Here's some shots of actual military personnel - and here's Shania flying on a guitar case - and here's some more military. You can barely see her singing in some of the clips.

I'm glad this era gets another music video but eh. I'd almost rather have seen the Dancing with the Stars footage in there instead.

Shania Twain @ShaniaTwain

My song ‘Soldier’ is about the heartbreak of having to say goodbye to a loved one. I wanted to make this video to honor the men and women who serve their country everyday. Hope you like it.

Shania Twain Debuts Emotional Music Video For Powerful Song ‘Soldier’

By Alyssa Croezen | ET Canada | July 5, 2018

Canadian country icon Shania Twain is back with an emotional music video for her song “Soldier”.

The music video transitions between scenes of Twain performing on her “NOW” tour and touching videos of soldiers returning home to their loved ones.

“My song ‘Soldier’ is about the heartbreak of having to say goodbye to a loved one. I wanted to make this video to honour the men and women who serve their country everyday. Hope you like it,” she said of the music video on Twitter.

Back in October 2017, the 52-year-old announced that the song from her latest album “NOW” would be featured in the movie “Thank You for Your Service”, which tells the story of a group of American soldiers who return from Iraq, struggling to return to their normal lives following the war.

"I'm so proud that my song ‘Soldier’ from my upcoming album NOW is part of the film Thank You For Your Service. Watch the music featurette below and exclusively in Cinemark theatres."

Twain is currently touring across North America, making her final Canadian stop in Toronto, set to perform on July 6 and 7.

This is Shania Twain trying her best to capture those "Trump Supporters" and those who are "Clinton Supporters"

1. The movie "Thank You For Your Service" did not have or give Shania Twain credit in anything with her song being used for the promo which merits the back door deals and those behind the movie. Also, she stared in a Nascar movie "Trading Paints" which is again directed to the "Trump Supporter" and the pushback is possible because she is trying to please the hardcore Ted Nugget/Toby Keith tea party patriots. With that being said. Please remind yourself Shania Twain went on tour with Toby Keith and that is where she got discovered with a simple call from Mutt Lange.

2. A "Solider" is a soldier regardless of what or who you defend period. She sang a disaster at Dancing with the Stars plus she judged in horrid capabilities. She was laughed off and that performance did not have any American flag or and military in the audience to get the feel of anything. ABC possibly did a disservice or her team could not think of anything but to make it a stripped down to focus on Shania approach

3. The version where she is flying is simply a slap in the face to the military but art lovers and culture intelligent fans will love it. So again she is trying to please them all without allowing her natural talent, message and her self to sell it plus to allow it to work. The album sales and everything thus far has proven that she is trying way too hard to come back and make a splash or she is not taking it one day at a time like she sings in "Today Is Your Day" Flags or not she is trying not to set off another bad press or good press.

Something tells me that they are really down and trying to make something work when it really it is not working. Flying around on your guitar case is pretty self and I do not get the point. As someone who understands art, the message and thinks. I do not get it. Reba, Dolly, Taylor, and Carrie would have done it a little bit better. Not saying she is doing things wrong but...... I think with Mutt being out of the picture. It is truly showing and the truth is she is coming back on her own terms but needs awake up call. On the other hand, this could possibly mirror something. Shania Twain's album few what after what 4-5 weeks off the chart. Christina A's new album is slipping just like Shania Twain's NOW. Those divas and artist back in the good old days before this are possibly not winning the war or battle with sales, exposure and what is happening in music. It's either you are with "us" or against "us." This possibly proves that the country is divided and how pushing this as the next single is WRONG! "Home Now" would have been a smashing success with this being a "charity" single for two organizations in the States and Canada.

Sorry for the rant and sorry but I just had to type this.
