Shania Twain - will she ever record again?

What is the deal with this woman? She has a reality show slated for OWN network. Will it chronicle her making a comebacka album? It's been EIGHT YEARS since her last - that is forever in the music industry for the woman with the highest selling album ever. %0D %0D Despite all her self inflicted drama, she is easier to take than these lame country acts today. %0D %0D Does Mutt refuse to produce her any longer??

by Anonymousreply 16002/25/2015

Well, they're divorced and as I recall it wasn't a very friendly split so I doubt they have any desire to work together. Still, she could have hooked up with another strong producer and continued recording. The lack of recording without Mutt only cements the idea that all her success was due to him.

by Anonymousreply 104/09/2011

This is some white trash shit:

Twain married music producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange on December 28, 1993, and they have a son, Eja D'Angelo (pronounced "Asia") who was born on August 12, 2001. On May 15, 2008, a spokesperson for Mercury Nashville announced that Twain and Lange were separating after Lange had an affair with Twain's best friend, Marie-Anne Thiebaud.[44][45] Their divorce was finalized on June 9, 2010.[46] On December 20, 2010, Twain's manager confirmed that Twain was engaged to Swiss business executive Frederic Thiebaud, the ex-husband of Marie-Anne Thiebaud.[47][48] They married on January 1, 2011 in Rinc%C3%B3n, Puerto Rico.[49]

Shania has repeatedly tried to get another album going, but she can't come up with any decent songs.

Mutt Lang was the musical talent, Shania was just the sexy belly button on the CD cover.

Having said this, in her defense, Taylor Swift did the same thing, but at least Shania Twain had some seriously good songs. Taylor Swift is pure musical dog vomit attached to a great ass.

"Despite all her self inflicted drama, she is easier to take than these lame country acts today."%0D %0D %0D %0D ROFLMAO. She is the one responsible for all the lame country acts - they are just trying to copy her success. She's a stupid bimbo who used her looks to get to the top, and thinks she's a songwriter because she slaps her name on songs her ex-husband wrote. She can't sing, either. Her songs are unbelievably cheesy - like Mariah Carey songs with a few steel quitars thrown in to make them "country" %0D %0D %0D %0D "Having said this, in her defense, Taylor Swift did the same thing, but at least Shania Twain had some seriously good songs.

Shania's only talent as a songwriter is sitting in the studio on a stool looking pretty to inspire Mutt Lang, for which she got a technical partial credit. I am guessing she has hired ghost writers for her next album, the problem is there are no good songwriters of any kind left today in Country Music. You can't hired what is not available.

I doubt any backup singer sang Shania's lead vocals, r17. A collection of demos she recorded with Paul Sabu (another dude with his roots in hair metal) before she hooked up with Mutt, and before she went country, has been floating around for years and years. Same voice, same everything. I wish she had gone in that direction, which was more of a female Bryan Adams than anything else (and Mutt was instrumental in Bryan's success, too).

She has lost her voice. Combination of stage fright and stress has resulted in the muscles around her vocal box tightening up and modifying her voice. Technically there is nothing actually wrong with her vocal chords themselves. I guess it is essentially a physical manifestation of anxiety. I wonder if you could inject a small amount of botox to the muscles. I know botulinum toxin was originally used to treat stuff like cross-eyes and excessive blinking.

Shania sings really well a capella, I like her voice. I think she said that the grief over the divorce ordeal has interfered with her desire to sing. She didn't seem to have moved on yet from the ex husband / best friend betrayl thing yet, if you watch the Oprah interview. She seemed unaware of how self absorbed an "in it" she still was during that interview and I think she should not have done any filmed interviews at that point.

Shania is your classic rags to riches story. Very rough background. Lots of heartbreak, including her husband leaving her for her best friend. Parents dying young.

She's got plenty of money and stability for the first time in her life. She's just not the ambition machine she once was.

For what it's worth she was raised in the Ojibway Indian culture by her stepfather, a full blooded Ojibway native.

Jerry Twain adopted the girls, making them official members of his native band, the Temagami Anishnawbe Bear Island First Nation.

So legally she is Ojibway Indian, and the native band recognizes her as part of the tribe.

She has also said her biological father was part Cree.

by Anonymousreply 11303/21/2012

After her step-father adopted her, Shania (born Eileen Regina Edwards) was legally entitled to be registered as a "status Indian". Shania currently holds a status card and is on the official band membership list of the Temagami First Nation.

In 1991, the singer was offered a recording contract in Nashville and applied for immigration status into the United States. At that time, by virtue of her step-father Jerry Twain being a full-blooded Ojibway and the rights guaranteed to Native Americans in the Jay Treaty (1794), Shania became legally registered as having 50 per cent Native American blood.

Who cares if she ever releases another album as nobody with an ounce of musical taste would buy it and it would be so rubbish that illegal downloading would be ignored as anybody who did download it must be a retard who needed pity not prosecution. Her previous success was down to Mutt Lange and Mutt Lange alone, it certainly wasn't down to her talent as she has none.

she didn't sing so much as she barked and welped like a cocker spaniel, just a little less hairy. and btw, she looked like a soccer mom in that pic from 2011. what singer wears flats to an awards show (and then trips in them?). NEXT

She was gotgeous ten years ago.

R137 Shania Twain Centre turned into open pit mine. LOL You can write a country song about that.

R138 She still is.

Shania's reality show a couple years ago showed that she is damaged from Mutt Lange's affair with her best friend. The entire series she couldn't stop talking about it and her husband was right there. I can understand why she can't get over it because most of her songs were created by Mutt Lange so they could trigger memories. She didn't sing for years no doubt to avoid bringing up those memories. She said it was due to something wrong with her vocal chords but she had them checked on the show and they literally were perfect.

Her 2002 album faced an uphill climb. She took years to make it and rap was dominating mainstream music. She then vanished from public for years. People moved on. If you walk away from something that brings you great success then come back years later the public won't follow you.

That's sad R137.

R140 Not really surprising though. Besides the fact it's silly to have a museum for someone who's not even 50, she hasn't released a studio album in over a decade and hasn't really done anything in the public eye in years. No wonder it flopped.

At this point the media isn't checking for Shania Twain. She's ancient history.

Shania has accomplished everything she wants to.

She still hold the record for the best-selling studio album of all time by a female act in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time.

And she is only one of six women to win Country Music's highest award and honor. Entertainer of the Year.

The only other women who have won that award are Country music royalty. Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Barbara Mandrell, Reba McEntire and her.

Taylor Swift has also won that award as well, rounding out the six.

I agree R144.

How does the country music industry treat Canadian country artists and musicians?

by Anonymousreply 14708/18/2013

I think she should consider working with however is producing Maroon 5's new material...it has a commercial sheen but sometimes has some "organic" elements. I'm sure they can put a slide guitar in there so it's "country."

She is a songwriter in her own right, she had an album out before she met Lange...but after the horrible divorce, where Lange had an affair with her best friend, she had a lot of trouble even thinking about performing all those songs she wrote and produced with him. He's a veeery successful music producer/songwriter (AC/DC, Def Leppard, a million others) and he definitely took her up a notch but she basically had a huge issue singing and performing those songs. She ended up with her best friend's husband, who is actually really hot, and she release a new album but touring she would have to sing all the old stuff and she's said that's still really difficult for her to do.

I'm guessing she'll set up in Vegas like Celine at some point and just rake in the money. Also, every time she performs Lange makes money so maybe that pisses her off. I think the critical mistake she made was taking so long to release anything after that monster album...she moved to Switzerland with Lange and raised the kid, etc., and sort of dropped out sight.

Nashville does hate her, because she did everything outside of it with Lange, and did not kiss anybody's ring like country artists are expected to.

R149, Shania has been in Vegas for quite awhile. Not sure how well her show is doing...

by Anonymousreply 15008/31/2013

oh! thanks R150...I figured that's where she'd go but I didn't realize she was already set up there.

Who gives a fuck?

Is she still the record holder for country album sales? I though Taylor Swift already broke her record?

by Anonymousreply 15305/15/2014

She's lazy when it comes to recording new material - she hasn't released a new studio album in 12 years (and counting).

Her record will be broken eventually if she keeps being lazy.

She rotates residency with Celine and Rod Stewart in Caesars Palace.

Celine and Shania are the two top Divas in Canada.

by Anonymousreply 15605/15/2014

R154 I doubt her album record will be broken. As far as physical media like CDs it won't be broken. People don't buy albums like they used to. Come on Over has sold over 15 million copies in the US while Adele's 21 has sold over 10 million.

by Anonymousreply 15705/15/2014

Hasn't Taylor Swift's discography already broken the record of her Come On Over??

Him at a very young age.and what better way to cause some drama for the all mighty mutt... hit his pocket book so good on you shania you never needed him you were going to be great without him!

Shania has a live cd/dvd/blu-ray entitled "Still the One: Live from Vegas" coming out next week in Canada and the UK. It's listed as an import on Amazon US so I guess it's not getting an American release?
