MERCURY RECORDS/NASHVILLE Country artist SHANIA TWAIN was honored on THURSDAY JUNE 9th, for reaching worldwide sales of more than 75 million, making her the top-selling female artist in the history of Country music.
TWAIN’s producers BUDDY CANNON and NORRO WILSON were on hand as UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP Chairman LUKE LEWIS recognized TWAIN, at the CITIZEN CLUB in NASHVILLE, TN.
Producer NATHAN CHAPMAN, who co-produced TWAIN’s new song, “Today Is Your Day” and RAY KENNEDY, who mastered the song, were there as well.
“The purpose of writing ‘Today Is Your Day’ in the first place was self-inspiration,” TWAIN said. “I was talking to myself and saying, ‘Today is your day. You can do it.’ But the decision to even write the song and share it was a big decision for me, to find myself as a songwriter again, independently, for the very first time after all these years.”
CHAPMAN added, “It was exciting for me as a fan and as a producer to find out just how brilliant she really is as an artist. She sounds amazing; she sounds better than ever. She is one of those artists who can tell a story just in the tone of her voice.”
