Shania Twain releases new documentary and album on Netflix
Something – or rather, someone – has been missing amid the most frequent conversations in country music lately, related to the 90s era, female empowerment, the country pop revival and quintessential radio hits: Shania Twain.
Now via a new Netflix documentary and a companion greatest hits album – both titled “Not Just A Girl” – CMT’s only female “Artist of a Lifetime” recipient, five-time GRAMMY winner and entertainer best-selling female country pop of all time entered the chat.
The 90-minute documentary features a who’s who of pop stardom from the past two decades, including Kelsea Ballerini, Diplo, Avril Lavigne, Orville Peck, Lionel Richie and more. Plus, the full career feature produced by Mercury Studios features never-before-seen studio session footage from throughout her career and all-new interviews with Shania at home.
2022 is a season of birthdays for the native of Timmins, Ontario, Canada.
It marks the 25th anniversary of his 1997 album “Come On Over,” a diamond seller that took 13 singles to country radio in three years and sold more than 10 million copies. Plus, it’s the tenth anniversary of his decision to take his live show to Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace. Currently, she is performing at her second Vegas residency, “Let’s Go!” at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
Via a press release, it is noted that the documentary is “a definitive look at the creation of one of the world’s most adored superstars and trailblazing female pioneers in pop, country and rock”, and highlights the recording of Twain’s forthcoming sixth album. .
Alongside the documentary, Twain is set to release a greatest hits compilation album via Mercury Nashville/UMe, which includes a new bonus title track. This version will also include hits such as “Any Man of Mine”, “That Don’t Impress Me Much”, “You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.” The album will be available digitally on July 26, with a physical release scheduled for September 2.
Twain will continue to make headlines until August, as she closes Toronto’s Festival of Boots and Hearts on August 7 alongside fellow Canadian country artists Lindsay Ell and Robyn Ottolini. In addition, she will receive the Poet Award from the Academy of Country Music – given to a country music songwriter for outstanding and long-standing musical and/or lyrical contributions throughout their career – August 24 in Nashville at an event held at the Ryman Auditorium.
