19/8 Did you know thatů
lllllIn the audition that would decide
whether she got a record deal or not, Jessica Andrews sang
Shania's I'm Outta Here for Nashville producer Byron Gallimore
at his publishing company. "He stopped me in the middle of the song...
and I thought, 'Uh oh, he didn't like it.' But then he got everyone
in the office to come up and listen," Jessica says.
lllllThat Lance Bass from
'N Sync was at a Shania concert in Tennessee on June 4, 1999.
During a meeting with Keith Stegall and Luke Lewis of Mercury Records,
Shania's label, Lance mentioned that he'd like to see Shania's show
and maybe meet her. Indeed, Lance went to the show, but he didn't
16/8 MuchMusic Video Awards - The
awards will be held on the 21st of September and Shania's video
for her girl's night out anthem :) Man I Feel Like A Woman
is up for a nomination in the MuchMusic Award category. It is possible
to vote online,
just not sure exactly how. I'll find out and post it here. The website
didn't have any details.
28/7 Honey Go Home - Shania's hit, Honey I'm
Home seems to be quite a favourite for parodies. There was Shania
I'm Broke, and now I found Honey Go Home...it's pretty
funny...check it out.
l26/7 - Country
goes pop -While
all of Nashville is busy being disapproving as Shania gains more
and more success with her unique brand of "pop - country"
we see that country singer Daryle
Singletary's newest release is
a cover of the song I Knew I Loved You by the very
pop duo Savage Garden.
Wonder what the protectors of traditional country music will
say to that. As more country artists turn to a blend of pop and
country, do you think Shania, who has received so much criticism
so far, will finally be given a break? Post your opinions here.
The Britney-Shania connection - While we've come to expect
mentions of Shania in reviews of Britney's latest album, this one
review mentions her in a totally different context, referring to
Shania's past....check it out:
"Lucky," Britney tells the story of a famous girl who's lonely just
the same -- with a chorus of "She's so lucky, she's a star/But she
cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart." And brilliantly enough, her
Swedish writing team has made it seem as though she's shedding tears
for someone else. Shania Twain, perhaps?
22/7 - Keep a look out for the Shania contest coming
soon at www.shania-twain.com, Mercury Nashville's Shania site.
This is your chance to prove How Well You Know Shania Twain
and win an autographed guitar!

14/7- Shania's Come On Over has now sold over 32 million
copies. This makes Shania the Best Selling Female Artist
in any genre ever !!!!!
Christmas album...Reports have it that Shania will
be completing the Christmas album by the end of year 2000. Other
reports say that Mercury Nashville, Shania's record label, will
not be releasing any Christmas albums this year...which confirms
news heard earlier that there was to be no Christmas album cause
Shania and Mutt were working hard at her studio album...hmmm....right
now, your guess is as good as mine as to which is more likely.
14/7- A Shania Interpretive Centre is set to open in Shania's hometown
of Timmins, Ontario. It will be filled with Shania memoribilia.
Karen Bachman-Tonelli, curator of the Timmins museum, said, "We
will be receiving an inordinate amount of stuff, It's going to make
the collection really exciting."
