It's strange because all my favorites are or were divorced: Elvis, the 4 Beatles, the 4 members of ABBA and, of course, Shania.

BTW I am also divorced.

I'm concerned with it being such a personal album, and Shania writing it all herself, that critics will find someway to tear into her no matter how good the material is.


You also have to realize that today's journalists are not the journalists of the 90's when she was just getting her start and on the rise in her career. Today's journalists may not be as familiar with Shania because they were babes back then. If her music isn't absolutely spectacular on the new album, they may just write her off as a vintage artist who's trying to make some new music later in her career. Sort of like Dolly Parton. I hate to say it but today's generation think people in their 30's and 40's are old. Shania is turning 50 this year. If her music doesn't appeal to the teens and the college kids, it may not stand much of a chance and will just be more of a dedicated fan album.

Don't lynch me for saying that. I have been a fan of Shania for almost twenty years. I became a fan in my early teens with the 'Woman In Me' album. So that should tell you how old I am.

When I attended the Vegas shows over the last 2 years, there was a very good combination of people in the audience: I'd say 30% of them were less than 30 years of age. There is a new generation of Shania fans in the making, she brought up on stage a few little girls in Vegas, who were 6, 7, 8, ...10 years old...they knew of Shania's songs from their mothers.....

I think the next album will be very revealing.....

The one quote from this article that seems to be making the Facebook meme rounds....

"Art is a platform where self-expression should not be limited. I'm here to inspire. There is no age limit to that." - Shania Twain

If it turns out to be only for her "true fans", then I'm okay with that. I realize today is an age of the Taylor Swifts, Rihannas, etc. But I'm sure Shania will be happy with the success of her music if her fans are happy with it.

I agree. Back when she created 'Today Is Your Day', she said something about not caring about getting her music to #1 anymore. She said that if her music appealed only to her fans that she would be ok with that. I can't remember the direct quote; It was on 'Why Not?'
