Shania Twain Returns With New Single

As she releases her first new song in six years, Shania Twain has been honoured for reaching worldwide sales of more than 75 million, making her the top-selling female artist in the history of country music.

Luke Lewis, chairman of Universal Music Group Nashville, paid tribute to Shania’s talent, vision, and determination during an afternoon gathering at the Citizen club in Nashville.

It was a full-circle moment for Shania because she was surrounded by several of those who helped start her career, including Nashville attorney Dick Frank and producers Buddy Cannon and Norro Wilson, as well as hit producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), who co-produced her new song, ‘Today Is Your Day,’ and Ray Kennedy, who mastered the new song.

‘Today Is Your Day’ premiered worldwide during the finale episode of Why Not? with Shania Twain on Sunday, June 12 on the Oprah Winfrey Network. The song is now available on iTunes. “The purpose of writing ‘Today Is Your Day’ in the first place was self- inspiration,” said Shania, who co-produced the song with Chapman. “I was talking to myself and saying, ‘Today is your day. You can do it!’ But the decision to even write the song and share it was a big decision for me, to find myself as a songwriter again, independently, for the very first time after all these years. “Then the lyrics started flowing,” she said. “It was genuinely a melody that’s cheering me up. It became the natural theme song of the series.”

Chapman was excited and honored to work with Shania. “It was exciting for me as a fan and as a producer to find out just how brilliant she really is as an artist. She sounds amazing; she sounds better than ever. She is one of those artists who can tell a story just in the tone of her voice.

“The song itself is so uplifting,” he said. “At a time when all of her fans are rooting for her and wanting her to come back and find her voice, she is turning that back around and she is rooting for her fans by giving them a song that they can play to inspire them.”

This hectic month for Shania has included several significant milestones, including a best-selling book, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a successful TV series and news of a headline residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
