Shania Twain Says Now Is Her Truth

Exclusive CMT Hot 20 Countdown Interview Airs Sept. 30 and Oct. 1

When Shania Twain reminisces about her iconic “Man I Feel Like a Woman” music video, she sees herself as an artist delivering a message of empowerment.

The treatment was based on Robert Palmer’s video for his 1986 No. 1 “Addicted to Love” and has Twain working her microphone in a black top hat, corset, men’s shirt and short skirt while being surrounded by a band of stoic and chiseled male models.

That exact costume she wore for the video is currently on display at her Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit, Shania Twain: Rock This Country, which runs through July 15, 2018.

“It was really fun to create a character that represented the song and my spirit,” Twain tells CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. “It was a good mix of female empowerment, strength and beauty.”

Twain’s new album Now, her first album in 15 years, offers more of an inside look at that same independent spirit. Available Sept. 29, the album’s 11 songs including her latest hit “Life’s About to Get Good,” are Twain originals without any outside co-writers or contributors. She describes the music as her most soul-baring material to date.
