SHE’S STILL THE ONE!

SHANIA TWAIN TO BE HONORED WITH STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME


WHO: Shania Twain
Emcee: Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, President/CEO Leron Gubler
Guest speaker: Bo Derek

WHAT: 2,442nd Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Category of Recording

WHERE: 6270 Hollywood Boulevard in front of W Hollywood Hotel

WHEN: Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 11:30 a.m.

Singer Shania Twain was born on August 28, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. She began performing at the age of 13 on CBC Television’s Tommy Hunter Show. While attending Timmins High and Vocational School in Timmins, she also sang for a local band called “Longshot.”

Shania Twain is a phenomenon. With more than 57 million albums sold in the U.S. and Canada, she is the top-selling female country artist of all time; has multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries; has the eighth-biggest selling album of all time in the U.S. and 18 top ten songs, 8 of which reached #1.

Most amazing of all, Shania has reached beyond all feasible music boundaries with just four studio albums – 3 of which have received Diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of 10 million copies in the U.S. She is the only female artist to have three consecutive albums sell more than 10 million copies.

Though she released an album in the early 1990s with little fanfare, most people consider 1995’s The Woman In Me to be the first true Shania Twain album. That’s because, unlike her debut record, it contained songs that Twain herself wrote and delivered in her own distinctive way. Produced by former husband Mutt Lange, The Woman In Me stunned the country music world, brilliantly bringing a catchy pop sensibility to the genre.

“Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?," the first single from the album, made an impression, but the brash and sassy “Any Man of Mine” really set the tone for Twain’s impact on country music. A runaway hit, complemented by a video that showed Twain’s star power off to dazzling perfection, the song became her first #1 followed by the equally attitude-filled “(If You're Not In It For Love) I’m Outta Here!,” "You Win My Love" and the more low-key “No One Needs To Know.” The Woman In Me went on to sell more than 12 million copies in the U.S., replacing Patsy Cline’s Greatest Hits as the best-selling album by a female country artist and earning Twain a Grammy in 1996 for “Best Country Album.”

She followed that remarkable success with Come On Over in 1997, which saw one single after the next become chart hits. “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” "That Don't Impress Me Much," “Love Gets Me Every Time” and “You’re Still The One” solidified her musical persona as a strong but playful woman who believed in and demanded true respect. With sales of 20 million in the U.S., the album became the biggest seller by a woman in any genre of music. Not only did Twain reach beyond country music to reach pop fans, she crossed oceans, becoming a top-selling artist worldwide.

In May of 1998, with two wildly-successful albums and enough hit songs for a solid show, Twain set out on her first headlining tour, Come On Over. Over the course of 19 months, she performed for more than 2.5 million screaming fans, silencing critics who wondered if she could re-create her music in a live setting. The tour was one of the highest-grossing tours in both 1998 and 1999 and became one of the biggest tours by a female musician in any genre. Having done what she came to do, Twain finally took a break.

She retreated to her home in Switzerland, had a baby boy in 2001 and generally lived her life for the next few years. Her distinctive voice was missed, and Country Music magazine ran an article that read like a letter to Twain, begging her to come back with more music. At the end of 2002 she did.

UP! didn’t disappoint. Released in the U.S. as a 2-CD set - one offering a country version of the songs, the other a pop mix of them - the album delighted fans, who snapped up nearly three million copies in the first 6 weeks of release. The first single, “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!,” showed that motherhood and time away had not altered Twain’s approach to her music. Time magazine called UP!, “Easily the best pop album of the year...with the kind of energy that reminds you how much fun the genre can be.”

Once again, the proof of Shania’s power as songwriter and performer was seen in the sales chart. UP!, certified at 10 million U.S. sales, made Twain the only artist in history to have three consecutive 10x Platinum RIAA-certified albums [the other two being The Woman In Me (12x platinum) and Come On Over (20x platinum)]. Her UP! tour was the top-grossing country tour of 2004, and often caused jaded music critics to talk in Shania-like exclamation points.

Twain’s most recent album is Shania Twain Greatest Hits and with her previous powerhouse albums to draw from, the record is the ultimate exclamation point to her career so far.

Twain’s highly anticipated memoir From This Moment On was recently released on May 3 and quickly climbed the New York Times best-sellers list. Twain’s docu-series “Why Not? With Shania Twain” premiered May 8, exclusively on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network to rave reviews and record-breaking viewership for the network. Airing Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the series takes an intimate look at the amazing journey of the music superstar who, by the age of 21, had survived a childhood of poverty, the loss of both parents in a devastating accident and how she went on to become the best-selling female artist in country music history.

Shania Twain works tirelessly with the following charities: Shania Kids Can, Second Harvest Food Banks, Swiss Red Cross and many others.

Yeah, amen to that. I was really worried she was going to let that window of opportunity go by. It's been a long time, but it seems the window is 5 years?? Not sure. When I said something it was simply because I had no idea what might be happening if and when she finally did go for it. Now we know. Something is a good description since she has all kinds of irons in the fire at the moment, least of which is an album at the currently. But it does really sound like we may get one by the end of the year and I can't wait for this new song Today to come out. Amazon deleted whatever they had there, but I did get to see "something" of it on YouTube.

Ahh. I am going to LA on Wednesday. We have already bought tickets for Disneyland though and they can only be used on Thursday. I wish they would have announced the date sooner, say before we bought the tickets. At least I will be able to go and see the star.

I envy you. I've never been to California, and most likely will never get there. So, that's great! Enjoy seeing it!
