I was a bit worried with the number of views of the video, but the numbers are great. 420.000 views in the first 24h.

It looks like CMT or Shania's team passed on the opportunity of debuting LATGG on TV. CMT will instead debut Sara Evan's new music video.

TASTE OF COUNTRY COUNTDOWN:

BUT...NOW is the time to start requesting the video. Taste Of Country Top 10 is a list of the 10 most active videos online, as voted by the fans. Fans can vote, here:

http://tasteofcountry.com/category/...ideo-countdown/


From Taste of Country: "The Taste of Country Top 10 Video Countdown is entirely fan-voted, so if you want to see your favorite clips make it, you’ll need to keep voting!
Note: Fans can vote for one video, once every hour until the poll closes next Friday at 12PM ET. The weekly Top 10 will be revealed immediately after the poll closes. Videos are retired after six months, or when fans lose interest or when an artist releases a new video for a current single."

CMT HOT 20 COUNTDOWN:

Even though CMT will not debut the video for LATGG on TV, they have officially added it to their video request lists for the Hot 20 Countdown. The more votes in the first week of release, the better chance the video has of being played on air. This is also what helps nomminate the video for a 2018 CMT Video of the Year Award, next year.

http://www.cmt.com/show/hot_20_countdown/voting.jhtml

From CMT: "Voting opens every Friday at 1 p.m. ET and closes the next Wednesday at 1 a.m. ET."

I like the concept of the video, very Shania-like....and there are quite a few positive comments online about her attitude at letting go of her previous life and move on to enjoy her new life instead.

I've gone and done it, voting that is. But after all these years, I see Nashville hasn't changed. But on a happier note, views are up to almost 900,000.

New interview. Shania is featured on the cover of the UK industry magazine Music Week. There is a four page spread that details Shania and her team's strategy for the comeback.

Here is the article:

I guess she's right that "I'm like a success that I even made the record". I also can agree there are a whole younger generation of pop artists looking up to her.
Nice article!

Great article, thanks for posting it. I am happy to see a very good focus on promotion, it sounds like September is going to be very busy for Shania....has anyone seen or heard about her performance at 150 Canada? They mention it in the article but I thought she just showed up, without a performance....

Yes, I saw her performance in Canada but she just showed up, without a performance. She gave a speech highlighting the reasons why Canada is a great Country and so on...

Yes, saw article last week. It is a good write up. For the most part, fans have put out their lawn chairs and waited. Seriously though, there are a considerable number of younger fans. The question is will the younger fans wait like we have for the next big thing in her musical life since Shania is getting older and will probably take extended breaks down the road between gigs. I can wait, can they? It is important to note that the video for LATGG has now reached almost 2 Million 4 Hundred-thousand hits. Not bad for someone who has been off the grid for so long.

Can we please have any update of the charts and break it down? I sometimes get lost on that. I keep reading country radio is a joke and country radio is being a ....... about the single, her comeback and everything. Do you think it will crack the Billboard 100 and go up etc etc!

Shania will be performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC this coming Wednesday, August 16. Apparently someone who has the inside scoop on what is going on said to also pay close attention to Shania's social media accounts over the next 3-4 days.

Shania is featured in #32 on Vanity Fair in Italy. I translated the article. Here it is, sorry for any mistakes:

HAPPINESS AFTER THE BETRYAL

“I’ve been writing songs since the age of ten: it’s like a second skin to me. But after all those years of collaboration, I was willing to write all by myself. It’s been very liberating, like being baby again. “
We’re in a hotel suite in London, Shania Twain, a long denim jacket with strass and black pants, is promoting “Now”, her first album in 15 years. It’s not a common return. This “queen of country pop”, who sold one hundred million copies, album strucks even more because of the odissey the singer went through during those out of the spotlight years. First, the divorce from her husband-producer Robert John Mutt Lange, with whom she has a son and with whom she gave life to all of her music successes (included “Come on Over”, gone in history as the best selling country album of all time in the United States and the best selling album by a woman). Then the discovery that the other woman was her best friend. And in the end, the disphonia, a vocal cord pathology that forced her to learn to sing again.
“My voice’s changed, there’s no point in denying it. But it’s not for the worse. And anyway, this is my voice now and I’m gonna accept it: why wouldn’t I want to enjoy it?” Her revenge desire against her ex husband was so strong that for the first time she produced, with the help of others, the album. “I wanted to decide the songs, their sound, the instrumentation. At the end I’ve found I’d knew a lot more than what I had imagined and I had the time of my life: I was sperimenting, no inhibitions”, she says while adjusting her glasses. She’s so transparent. The new songs of “Now” have a great variety, from rock, to country to pop and the lyrics seems to be taken from her personal diary. “The longer my tears fell\The wider the river\It killed me that you’d give your life to be with her\It was time to forget you forever” she sings in “Life’s About To Get Good”, the single relesed back in June.
But the melancholy dissolves during the chorus, full of hope and words playing and it carries a precise message: to Shania Twain life begins at 50 (well, 52 August 28).
“Why would we have to hide behind our humiliations and disappoinments, pretending that everything is great all the time, that we’re strong and everything is beautiful when it’s not like that? To be on defensive all the time it’s emotionally fatiguing, even more if you’re a public figure: I simply made my life easier”.
It was 2008 when she learned, after 14 years of marriage, that her husband was having an affair with her best friend and confidant Marie-Anne Thiébaud. Marie-Anne husband, businessman Frédéric Thiébaud, discovered them and informed her and with a soap-opera like cliffhanger has become friend and in 2011 Shania second husband.
He’s been the only one to understand my feelings, my pain.” Now they’re inseparabile. While she gives interviews, he waits with her management in the next room reading tabloids with her wife in it visiting United Kingdom.
Shania Twain hopes that her betryal story going public, even if she already wrote about it in her autobiography back in 2011, may give “strenght, courage and hope to those who lived something similar. Life’s full of highs and lows and everything in between but we must always remember that we can always get up.”
Talking about lows, her life spared her nothing: “I realized it was not the first time I was feeling betryed, abandoned or disappointed. I’ve never met my biological father and that scar never healed. I’ve been raised by a step father (Jerry Twain), who died with my mom in a car accident. These things break you and you ask, ‘God, how could you take away from me two parents at once?’ my divorce has brought me to other destabilizing spots, but it also helped me to work on all those hits my life gave me ‘til then. It’s been a hit, but not the worst one, and I put things in perspective. Writing has been the best teraphy: I realized I was a survivor and the strenght that helped me to go through all those challenges would’ve help me to go through that one, too”.
Maybe that’s why in her new song “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed” she sees herself as a boxer fighting the pain, like a new born baby who hasn’t even opened his eyes for the first time but his fists are in the air ready to fight.
If in 2010 she founded the no-profit organization Kids Can, to help underprivilged kids in the United States, is because her childhood has been extremely poor. As a baby, not having a coat to fight against the cold or not having enough food was the normality. If that’s not enough, her step father was abusive with her mother and those scenes traumatized little Eileen (her real name), her sister Carrie and her two younger brothers. “I’ve lived so much pain, humiliation and embarassement that I had to learn to hide everything, to keep everything to myself. Now I’m at a point in life where I don’t feel ashamed of who I am, or where I come from. I don’t want to relive those moments, but I’m ready to freeing myself of all that pain, singing about it, too”.
It looks like Shania has found a new dimension in her concerts, after completely walking away from them in 2004 to retire with her husband and son in Switzerland. Now that she’s found a new voice (“You can’t heal from dysphonia, but I’ve learn to live with it”), the canadian songwriter is ready to tour again and being a tennis fan, she can’t wait to sing at the US Open at the end of August.
What will never change, she assures us, is the compulsive isolation she needs to write new music. “I have to be completely alone, no one needs to know I even exist”.
Like when she was a child, when she walked 45 minutes in the woods with her guitar to sing and play around a campfire. She’s a child again in the new ballad “Light Of My Life”, in which she imagines to fall in love with a person who ignores her; but she keeps on dreaming and hoping that that person will change his mind. “I love to dream, and now I’m in a positive phase that allows me to. When you live in the past, you can only hope in the future. But what’s the point? You will loose what’s in between, the “now”: the real life”.
