Today the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced that singer Shania Twain will be the 2011 inductee to the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at this year's JUNO Awards. The awards will be broadcast on March 27.
“Shania Twain revolutionized the look and sound of country music, and truly is one of the most accomplished and celebrated music artists of her era,” said Melanie Berry, President & CEO of CARAS in a press release. “Her authenticity as a songwriter and performer has made her a global powerhouse, and we’re so proud to honour her at home in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.”
The Timmins, Ontario singer has been one of country music's most awarded stars since hitting the scene in 1995 with her release of The Woman In Me.
Twain brought sex appeal to the genre that had never been seen before with her naval baring costumes and sultry voice that bridged pop and country radio stations.
During her career she has sold more than 41 million albums in the United States and over 4.2 million in Canada making her the top-selling female artist in history. She has had multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries, the sixth biggest selling album in history and 16 Top Ten hits with eight hitting the number one position.
Twain has written an autobiography due on the shelves this spring and will soon be seen on the small screen on The Oprah Winfrey Network in “Why Not? With Shania Twain.”
In between concerts, recording and writing Twain takes time with her family. Her child Eja D'Angelo was born in 1993.
