Speaking right before showtime at the CMT Artist of the Year, she confirmed she’s still working on a new album and that writing the new material has been a journey of self-discovery.
This album is more diverse than any other album than any album I’ve ever done,
she continued by telling Lauren Tingle reporting for CMT,
Not that I’ve done a ton of albums, but it’s the most diverse of the albums I’ve had. There’s a lot of variety there. But what I’ve learned about myself is as the songwriter of the songs, the emotion and the voice, ties it all together as one artist. It’s been a lot of hard work but the most fun hard work I think I’ve ever done so far.
Shania Twain Albums
Twain has released four studio albums, including her 1993 self-titled debut, 1995’s The Woman in Me, 1997’s Come on Over and 2002’s Up!
Shania was presented with Artist of a Lifetime trophy after a powerful tribute, featuring Jill Scott, Meghan Trainor and Kelsea Ballerini singing her biggest hits like “Man, I Feel Like a Woman”.
During their acceptance speeches at the annual event, Shania jokes she
doesn’t want to get off the stage’
while Carrie wipes away tear over a video tribute featuring her son Isaiah.
Shania Twain and Carrie Underwood were among those honored as CMT’s Artists of the Year of 2016 during a ceremony held at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville on Wednesday, October 19. During the event, Shania promised new music while Carrie got teary after watching a video tribute featuring her son Isaiah.
She recalled her early days playing in bars “and some strip clubs,” before saying, “I don’t want to get off the stage right now because I’m loving this moment! I love music, and I hope that it carries on for many more years in my life.”
On the red carpet, Shania, who last year wrapped what she called her final tour, confirmed a new album is on the way. “I have new music coming out really soon, and I’m very excited about it. There will be a new musical chapter,” she told Rolling Stone Country.
Carrie, meanwhile, wiped away tears as she took the stage to accept her trophy. “Aren’t we blessed? God is good – he’s definitely been good to me. Oh man, I don’t know why I’m getting teary eyed…I think it was seeing my little guy on the screen,” she said, referring to the video tribute featuring her 19-month-old son.
Carrie performed “Like I’ll Never Love You Again” along with the song’s talented writers, Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose.
