My husband, being the military vet that he is, shakes his head at the lock and load statement. He said obviously you load your weapon before you lock it. The correct phrase is load and lock. Write that down somewhere, our dear Data made a mistake. ;)

hania Twain First Ever Greatest Hits Album in Stores November 9, 2004

Press Release Source: Mercury Records Nashville


Thursday August 26, 6:01 am ET


NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Shania Twain's Greatest Hits, the first ever greatest hits album from the multi-Grammy, platinum-selling artist will be released November 9, 2004. The 21-track album will consist of Twain's chart-topping hits, as well as three brand new songs.

Twain has celebrated 16 top ten career hits -- 10 of which have reached the top five and 8 secured the elite no. 1 spot. With her most recent album UP! earning certification of 10x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, Twain is the only artist in history to have three consecutive 10x platinum certified albums. The other two being The Woman In Me (12x platinum) and Come On Over (19x platinum).

"Party for Two," the first single to be released to radio, is recorded in two versions. In one version, Twain pairs with Sugar Ray front man Mark McGrath, the other with country newcomer Billy Currington. Videos for both versions were recently filmed in Europe and are scheduled to begin airing in September.

"I wanted to put together all of my favorite songs from over the years for a fun, high energy album. This record is exactly that, as well as a dedication to all of the passionate fans that have enjoyed and supported me throughout the years," exclaims Twain.

Twain's recently wrapped 2003-2004 UP! Tour reached nearly $80 million overall in ticket sales for North America. The 2004 leg alone brought in over $34 million, making this leg of Twain's tour the top grossing country tour of 2004.

Shania Twain's Greatest Hits track listing (in sequence order):

"Forever and For Always"
"I'm Gonna Getcha Good"
"UP!"
"Come On Over"
"Man! I Feel Like A Woman!"
"That Don't Impress Me Much"
"From This Moment"
"Honey, I'm Home"
"You're Still The One"
"Don't Be Stupid"
"Love Gets Me Every Time"
"No One Needs To Know"
"You Win My Love"
"I'm Outta Here"
"The Woman In Me"
"Any Man Of Mine"
"Whose Bed Have Your Boots"
"Party for Two' (with Mark McGrath)"
"Don't!"
"Party for Two (with Billy Currington)"
"I Ain't No Quitter"

I hear you Sheri, but the way I remember, and you have to humor me since it was 37 years ago, but this is how I remember them saying it, "Lock and Load Gentlemen!" Now I understand that doesn't work well, but that's how I recall it. Maybe because it sounds more macho to say lock and load instead of the other way around.:confused: :D :D

Okey guys, start to get ready, tomorrow is 1st of september.

There is a chance that the single will be "leaked" to the air a couple of days before 7th of september.

But even if not, there is not too much time till the album comes out. It has to be around the top 10 till than.
So we have to request the song to create a big buzz: check out your phone-line, fax and internet-connection and go for it!

And don't forget, the key of success here is consistensy in requesting.

Well, fans has to pick up the phone, and not waiting for other to do the job for them.
And Adkins's song is longer time on the chart, people already know it.
So Ben, go and do some work on that stations. And of course anyone who can hear WMZQ.

on my station KMLE country 108, they have a thing called "Hump it or Dump it" where they play a new song and people call in and say if they hump it (like it) or dump it (hate it), well they played PFT last night at 11pm and shania got dumped big time. it was a final vote of 38% to 62%. i called in a couple of times and got my hump votes in but i was just outmanned! so, as much success as other people are having with their stations, i'm having no such luck

Very important to be aware, when the song is being put up for a survey, alone or against other song, and calling in. Because that can stop them playing the song:

Perhaps that's what these stations call today survey.:rolleyes:

They playing it 3 times, than put it up against a song was played to death already, and everyone is familiar with.
If it lost against that song, they will say they did a "survey" and people not liked the song, and won't to hear Shania anymore...

That's about radio... and surveys....and fair airplay...:mad:

------------------------------------
So very important to follow after these so called surveys and poll put up on internet sites of a certain station.

shania.com....

September 9: URGENT (ridiculous development overnight) -- Shania's "Party For Two" single slipped to #30, dropped to 586 spins, lost 3 stations (to 90) and nearly 16% of audience impressions the second day after official add date plus one week of early pre-release airplay. Come again??? Most of the Top 20 station leaders apparently had momentary labotomies. Worst spin/audience drops at WUSN Chicago, KZLA Los Angeles, and KILT Houston. The country version of this song is flat-out fabulous. MORE Shania FANS need to make regular REQUESTS. 1-3 times weekly is fine, no more than that. Don't need the same few loyal fans making more requests -- do need MORE fans making a few requests. Thank you... Chart rank is less important, but spins, audience size, major markets and new station adds are critical. Some temporary playlist changes are expected related to the September 11 anniversary. Plays may stagnate for a few days, but Shania's single should not lose spins or any stations.
