Shania Twain feels ‘stronger than ever’ ahead of new album release ever”

Shania Twain’s life could be a great country music song.

In fact, there is so much material that several great country music songs can be made from it. She survived a difficult childhood, lost her parents in a car accident and was diagnosed with Lyme disease at the peak of her career. illness that caused her to temporarily lose her voice. And then, in the midst of her recovery, her husband left her for another woman.

But Twain says those hardships got her to where she is today.

“Every time something brings me down or tries to bring me down, it fuels more determination. I feel stronger now than ever in my life. And, and it feels good,” Twain told CNN’s Chris Wallace in a statement. talk for his new show, “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?”

The program debuts Friday on HBOMax and also airs Sunday evenings on CNN.

Twain is currently working on her sixth full-length solo project, her first solo album since 2017. Her lead single from the album, “Waking Up Dreaming,” also debuts Friday.

She calls her new music “just the beginning” of a “new chapter”.

“It’s a long way from the country,” she admitted of the song. ‘It is an energetic poppy. In the video I play superstar, I dress up. And have fun with fashion and looks like never before. It’s a treat for me.”

It’s far from the first time the Grammy-winning artist has taken risks with her songs and music videos.

The music video for “Any Man of Man” from her second album featuring Twain wearing her midriff attracted a lot of attention from fans and critics alike. Although the album was the best-selling country album that year and won a Grammy, purists said her music wasn’t country enough.

“[They said] I am a lap dancer. No, you are not allowed to show your diaphragm. You’re going to insult everyone, you’re going to insult the women for being turned off by you and the men for having such an attitude towards men,” she recalled industry executives telling her. “But I just had to ignore that and follow my own vision. Trust that.”

Her confidence in her own vision has led to 18 Grammy nominations and earned her the title of one of the best-selling artists of all time.

“I really had a huge dream. From a very small child. I don’t know if I would ever have been happy if I hadn’t gone for that dream,” she told Wallace.

Twain’s “giant” dream was nearly crushed in 2004 when she was diagnosed with Lyme disease, in which she developed dysphonia, a vocal cord disorder that makes speaking, much less singing, difficult.

“It was an unreasonable amount of work and pressure to keep it going as an artist. So I could do some little things, but with so much work behind it, I thought, no, I could never be a real artist again. And go out and sing it live,” she said.

Twain eventually had surgery. Although the surgery was a risk, the singer said she should try it.

“I should have stopped my singing career, so I’m like, ‘Oh, sure, I’ll try this.’ And boy, can I scream now,” she said.

Shania Twain, who will be performing here in 2018, has premiered a new album.

While dealing with her vocal issues, Twain discovered that her husband was having an affair with her best friend at the time.

“[There were] definitely moments when I wanted to pick up and plop down somewhere on another planet,” she told Wallace. “Music was always my big escape, but because I couldn’t sing at the time, I had no escape.”

In a twist, she eventually married to Frédéric Thiébaud, the ex-husband of the woman with whom her first husband had an affair. Twain thanks Thiébaud for being important to her recovery.

“I’m figuring out how to get my voice back and I feel strong. I have remarried. My husband is an incredible support,” Twain said. “I have an amazing son, so I’m starting to feel like my life is getting back on track in a really bright and sunny way.”
