Shania Twain: Babe of the Week #42 (Oct. 2013)


Shania Twain
(Five-time Grammy and 27-time BMI Songwriter award winner, 75 million albums sold worldwide)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=



Shania Twain, international superstar and the world's best-selling female country artist of all time, made her triumphant return to the stage with a two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on December 1, 2012. The music icon brings all of her biggest hits in her new show Shania: Still the One exclusively to The Colosseum that picks back up on October 15, 2013. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide, 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, eight of which reached No. 1.

Twain was born in Windsor, Ontario, and raised in the small, rural town of Timmins, Ontario. She learned to play guitar at an early age and would spend much of her time singing, writing and playing. Early on in her musical development, her parents pushed her on-stage, making her perform frequently around their little town. She would often be pulled out of bed around one in the morning to sing at local bars, since as a child she could only appear in the clubs after they had stopped serving alcohol. In addition to bars, she sang on local radio and television stations and community events. When she was 21 years old, both of her parents died in a car crash, forcing her to take responsibility for her four siblings. In order to pay the bills and keep food on the table, she took a job singing at a resort in Deerhurst. With the money she earned at the resort, she bought a house and had the family settle down.

At the resort, she sang show tunes ranging from George Gershwin to Andrew Lloyd Webber, as well as a little country. Twain stayed there for three years, at the end of which all of her siblings had begun lives of their own. When she was finally independent again, she assembled a demo tape of her songs, and her manager set up a showcase concert in Canada. Twain caught the attention of a few insiders with the concert, and within a few months Mercury Nashville had signed her to their roster. Her eponymous debut album was released in 1993, and although it wasn't a major hit, it performed respectably in the United States, launching two minor hit singles, "What Made You Say That" and "Dance with the One That Brought You. In Europe, the album was more successful and Country Music Television Europe named her Rising Video Star of the Year.

Learned my lesson from that Jenny McCarthy on the street before makeup pic. Thumbs down for reminding me of that inexorable crawl towards feebleness and death called aging.

I almost wish I didn't like her so I could say she doesn't impress me much...

I liked her music better on her first album (when she was still country) but personally, she is quite easy on the eyes. Thumbs up!

Okay, so Shania's older now than she was twenty years ago. Twenty years older, to be exact.



Never been a huge fan of her brand of country-pop, but she still looks plenty hot enough for me. Thumbs up.

Isn't that a little extreme?

As far as Shania....Yowza! 5 out of 5 thumbs agree on being up.

I don't like country music, but a great voice. She did a great remake with Lionel Richie here.
