Hello? Any fans of Shania Twain out there?
Okay, that's a pretty stupid question. I know there are plenty of you, and also that you all must be very excited about the release of your favorite singer's brand-new single--her first in six years!
Twain debuted the uplifting and inspirational single, "Today Is Your Day," in full on the season finale of her reality show Why Not? With Shania Twain Sunday evening. It's now available exclusively at iTunes--click here to hear it and purchase.
And, if I weren't already convinced there were plenty of Shania fans out there, the song has shot to No. 2 on iTunes' country chart. That's some irrefutable proof right there that Twain is really still the one with the country (and otherwise) audience.
Now, if even that weren't enough to make the case--the fans have spoken, and I can't argue with them. The official site for Why Not? With Shania Twain is packed with glowing comments from viewers who love the new music: "It is so good to hear your voice in song--it's been too long," "When I heard her singing, I got goose bumps all over," "I cried when she sang in the studio! It was so moving and heartfelt," "This new song of yours is WONDERFUL!"
In addition to hearing the song on iTunes, you can see Twain performing an acoustic rendition here, helped along by the legendary Gladys Knight.
The unveiling of "Today Is Your Day" on Twain's show was just part of a whirlwind final episode packed with treats for her fans. In addition to the song, the finale featured a guest appearance from mega-superstar Lionel Richie, plus gorgeous footage from Twain's January wedding to Frederic Thiebaud.
So, I can't wait to hear--what do you think of Shania's first single in six years? Be sure to let me know!
As always, be sure to:
