Twain lost voice, confidence

Newlywed Shania Twain is hoping her new Oprah Winfrey Network series Why Not? inspires her to reclaim her crown as the queen of country music - after losing her voice and her confidence.

The Man, I Feel Like a Woman singer has revealed the pressures of superstardom and the break-up of her marriage to record producer Mutt Lange conspired to turn her into a bitter woman who no longer had any interest in recording and performing.

But now Twain hopes her show on OWN, which debuts in April, will provide her with the tools she needs to reclaim her former glory.

She says, "I have lost my ability to express myself and my ability to sing... For some reason, I'm not comfortable singing in front of people anymore.

"I was feeling more pressure from my career, the bigger it got. I felt the pressure to be better and better all the time. It just effected me. I was slowly losing my voice and slowly losing my confidence... My marriage was slowly breaking down too."

She admits that when Lange left her, she felt a "real death," adding, "I really lost my sense of trust, compassion, honesty... I was really getting quite obsessive about my own pain and my struggle and I just had to snap out of it.

"On this tour (for TV series)... I wanna talk to people that have been through big disappointments, big emotional crises, deep life struggles and I will learn something from that... I will be inspired by other people."

Twain has started 2011 in style - she wed Frederic Thiebaud in Puerto Rico on Saturday, just weeks after announcing her engagement.

This was covered in the preview to her show Why Not? I think Shania should practice singing in front of us. Tracy can host some small concerts at STC

Shania was really knocked down but won't be counted out. Things are only going UP from here. I have a good feeling about Fred and think things will go well. Shania's a great gal and has always shown courage and good character and always presented a positive image for her fans. She deserves our support. I'm sure we all feel the same; we want her to enjoy personal happiness even more than we want a new album and tour.

We all knew/heard the problems in her voice caused by the UP! tour,and she really felt bad about not be able to give her best.

Now, hopefully there is a new start, for better times! And personal happiness and fulfillment

I could not believe the difference in WIM from the Ottawa UP concert September 03 to the Montreal April 04 concert. My opinion was that in Ottawa she sang it the best I've ever heard her sing it. But by the time Montreal came along, she could barely get it out and her band helped her a lot. That night you could tell her voice was really hurting. So, I pray this effort helps her get it all back, her confidence in writing, her voice [as well as she can expect], and her love to sing for us. If she can accomplish this is great. I agree with VIVA though in that "she totally deserves our support and that we want her to enjoy personal happiness even more than we want a new album and tour".

I wish Shania would confirm that there will definitely be a new album. From the little bit I have read, it is hard to tell if she ever intends to release another album.

Did you see the OWN preview with her in the studio.

I am as mystified as you in this regard but we do not know what is going on in her head - if new music was her priority we would know about it.

I think her son and marriage and her family and friends have priority now and have for quite some time. IMHO.

I know that is a slow ballad, but I thought her voice sounded a whole lot better on this song than on the UP Tour, although not as creamy as before, maybe?

Plus, yeah, we don't really know what if any singing plans she may have. I agree that right now she has a lot of other things on her plate that for her take priority.
