  • SHANIA TWAIN’S ‘NOW’ ALBUM DEBUTS AT NO. 1 ON BILLBOARD.

    Shania Twain’s new album, NOW, bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. The superstar’s first studio album in 15 years sold 137,000 in sales and equivalent streams during its first week. According to Billboard, 134,000 were in traditional album sales, which is the third largest sales week for a country album this year and the largest for a woman in nearly two years (Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller album debuted in November 2015 with 164,000 in sales and streams).

     

    The album, which features “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed” and “Life’s About to Get Good,” along with “Soldier” and many more, includes many varied styles and moods, according to Shania.

    “Stylistically, the album is very diverse. I really took the freedom to just approach with an anything goes attitude. I really didn’t want to box myself in to any specific style or mood, and just let my creativity flow, and that resulted in a lot of just all of my favorite musical ideas in one,” she says. “So, I really had fun with it and explored things I’d never done before stylistically or things I always wanted to explore. I knew that I wanted the album to sound, you know, to not lose authenticity in the mix of everything. Once we got into production, I really wanted to make sure and my direction was I want to use authentic string instruments, acoustic instruments and use musicians with a lot of soul and a lot of really great live experience playing.”

    NOW has also debuted at the top of the U-K chart, beating out Wolf Alice’s Visions of a Life by fewer than 800 copies, as well as topping the album chart in Australia and Canada, where it has already been certified platinum.

    Shania will launch her NOW Tour May 3rd in Tacoma, Washington.

    Audio / Shania Twain says the songs on her NOW album are pretty diverse.

  • COUNTRY STARS REACT TO THE HORRIFIC TRAGEDY IN LAS VEGAS.

    Words are still hard to come by, emotions and unfamiliar feelings are flooding our hearts and souls and trying to process the horrific tragedy at the Rt. 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday night (October 1st) is still something that we can’t quite do and which will affect us the rest of our lives. The Country Music family, community, fans and friends around the world have been shaken to the core by the devastating carnage from Sunday night.

    It has taken days for me to post the following:

     

    Eric Church performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Wednesday night (October 4th) and spoke eloquently and passionately about Sunday’s shooting in Las Vegas. He was one of the headliners at the Route 91 Harvest Festival and painted the picture of the fans who attended the festival. He dedicated “Why Not Me,” a song he wrote this week, to Sonny Melton, the Paris, Tennessee man who died protecting his wife from the bullets that were being sprayed into the crowd of festivalgoers. Check out the videos below.

     

    While he performed “Here On Earth” the other morning for a national radio show, he’s also healing folks by talking to them and really listening to them, as well as giving much needed blood to the American Red Cross.

    Heartbroken for all the victims and families involved in #LasVegas. Still in disbelief. I love you all

    Audio / Before performing “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” at Monday night’s Candlelight Vigil at Nashville’s Ascend Theater, Keith Urban offered hope and prayers from his family to everyone who was affected by Sunday night’s horrific tragedy in Las Vegas.

    Download

    Keith Urban (Candlelight Vigil) OC: …in the world. 1:23
    “I I want to firstly offer the prayers and love of my whole family to everybody affected by last night’s horrific tragedy. I started this morning by finding out about it, and being shell-shocked all morning getting my kids ready for school. And our nine-year-old, as I was driving her to school this morning, said to, ‘Dad, you seem quiet.’ I said, ‘Yeah, it was a lot of people killed last night.’ She said, ‘Did you know any of them?’ I said, ‘Not that I know of.’ Then she said, ‘Well, why are you so sad?’ I said, ‘Well, first of all, these were innocent people horrifically taken. Secondly, they’re like family.’ It’s the one thing about country music that’s always been at the center of it. It is community. It’s about community. So, I did know those people in that way, and it just really hit me. I feel very grateful for this moment tonight to be able to put some light in the world.”

    Vince Gill (Candlelight Vigil) OC: …innocent people. :17
    Thank you for the opportunity to come and lift up 58 families who lost somebody last night. An honor to be here as a voice for the innocent. May we never lose our voice for innocent people.”

     

    Audio / Vince Gill's wife, Amy Grant, led a prayer at Monday night's Candlelight Vigil in Nashville to honor those who lost and risked their lives Sunday night in Las Vegas.

    Download

    Amy Grant (Candlight Vigil) OC: …each other. Amen. 2:21
    Father in Heaven, thank you for the gift of each other. Thank you that none of us is born alone or dies alone. But you go before us and beneath us and beside us and within us. Thank you for loving arms that were there to catch every fallen child, man and woman. Thank you for your presence that never leaves us. Thank you for word said over and over again, ‘Fear not.’ ‘Fear not.’ Father, in silence, we lift up, we just imagine all of the people rebuilding their lives. Broken. Grieving. And as a group, I don’t even know how to imagine lifting them all up, but I’m just picturing us almost like slinging them on our backs, lifting them up in our arms to the light of your love. We lift them up now, God, in silence. We lift up grieving spouses, God. We lift up moms and dads grieving the loss of a child, a son and a daughter. We lift up the doctors and nursing attending to the hundreds of people recovering. Give us the grace, God, every day, to see each other. To see each other. To see our differences. To see our similarities. To observe. To learn rather than judge. Fill our hearts with courage to not be afraid. To love, love, love. Thank you that you began this story that we’re all a part of, and you will finish it. And it began in love, and it will end in love. Thank you for the gift of each other. Amen.”

  • SHANIA TWAIN’S NEW ALBUM IS ‘NOW’ AVAILABLE.

    Shania Twain has released her brand-new studio album, NOW, her first full-length album since 2002.

    Shania says the album isn’t about her past, but about her NOW. “The album is about the journey to getting where I am now, and the music has evolved so much from the onset of when I started writing the songs from a more confused and grieving place to a much more optimistic place of being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  And the songwriting helped me address so many emotions that I’d been either not coping with or that I wasn’t even aware of,” she says. “It’s about me now and it’s not about my past.  It’s about the journey from where I was, where I’d been and where I am today now.”

    Writing the entire album and co-producing the collection of new songs, Shania said that’s the most special thing about it. “I was determined to make this creatively independent process and I didn’t want outside influence I wanted it to really be about my own thoughts and my own heart,” she says. “The songwriting process needed to be very intimate and really all about what I could do independently and also to prove to myself that I could do it myself and that was important to me.”

    Shania just released the video for her song, “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed.” Check it out below.

    The international superstar will launch her NOW World Tour May 3rd in Tacoma, Washington and will run through the rest of next summer, wrapping in Las Vegas August 4th at MGM Grand Garden Arena.

    Audio / Shania Twain explains what her new album NOW is all about.

    Download

    Shania Twain (NOW album) OC: …today now. :44
    “This is my now album. The album is about the journey to getting where I am now, and the music has evolved so much from the onset of when I started writing the songs from a more confused and grieving place to a much more optimistic place of being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  And the songwriting helped me address so many emotions that I’d been either not coping with or that I wasn’t even aware of.  So, it was a huge awareness process writing the music for this album. It’s about me now and it’s not about my past.  It’s about the journey from where I was, where I’d been and where I am today now.”

    Audio / Shania Twain says the most special thing about her new album, NOW, is that she solely wrote every single song on the album.

    Download

    Shania Twain (NOW is special) OC: …important to me. :42
    “I mean the most special thing about the record for me personally is and artistically is that I wrote the whole album myself. I was determined to make this creatively independent process and I didn’t want outside influence. I wanted it to really be about my own thoughts and my own heart. Once the songs were written then, of course, artistically and creatively it all goes into the studio and the building of the actual record. But the songwriting process needed to be very intimate and really all about what I could do independently and also to prove to myself that I could do it myself and that was important to me.”
