Granted, there’s a slight whiff of, umm, overexposure surrounding Shania Twain these days.
First, news of the surreal change-partners ending to her relationship with producer/husband/Svengali Mutt Lange surfaced. Then, she published a tell-all memoir, “From This Moment On,” which became an instant New York Times bestseller. Then: Her very own reality show on OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, “Why Not? With Shania Twain,” which documents her gradual return to recording. This Sunday’s episode: “Finding My Voice,” which films her consulting with renowned vocal coach Eric Vetro, then meeting with noted producer David Foster, working to get her career back on track.
Will the proof be in the pop-flavored pudding?
Fans will find out together on the Sunday, June 12 episode, at 10 p.m. That’s when Twain will be premiering her comeback single “Today Is Your Day,” her first new material in six long years. Then at 11 p.m., the track goes on sale via iTunes.
And yes, we should care about her return.
The five-time Grammy winner’s 1997 “Come On Over” release went on to become the best-selling album of all time by a female, as well as the best-selling country album of all time. She’s also won a stunning 27 BMI Songwriter Awards, and just received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
