Shania Twain was very excited to open and show the new Rock This Country Exhibit. The preview was held at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum last June 27. The event engrossed not only the fans but also the local community artists.

The exhibit will be running from June 30 until July 15, 2018. In it, you will see the display highlighting Twain’s rise to stardom including her outfits and mementos that keeps track of her career. ?Having sold over 90 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 35 million, she still the one who holds the record as the top-selling female country artist of all time.

She piloted in a new era of women empowerment in country music, with hits such as “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” ‘You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” to name a few.

“It’s an honor to be a part of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibitions for 2017,” said Twain. “Being able to re-visit favorite costumes, photographs and memories from my career has been a special feeling, especially as this year will see a new stage for me with a brand new album! I’m very excited to have these important creative moments on display.”

During her remarks at the Hall of Fame rotunda, she couldn’t help but acknowledge her first supporters in Nashville. They included Buddy Cannon, Harold Shedd and the late songwriter-producer Norro Wilson, who were there for her.

“I had no parents to call to say, “‘It’s not working out,’ or ‘Can you send a bit of money?’” she said. “I had no one to fall back on. And my new family was the future and whatever I made of that future. And my beginnings were humble and very difficult, but they prepared me for standing alone.”

She definitely can’t forget to recognize her team who helped her to achieve fame.

“By standing alone, I humbly say that it wasn’t because I got here by myself,” she said. “It’s just because I had to find a stronger person within both to stand alone in the sense that nobody was going to make the decisions for me — mostly because I didn’t want them to. And I knew that unless I was going to be strong and stand alone, that they would make those decisions for me, and I would never be what I wanted to be.”

Despite everything that happened in her past, she also said she was “very lucky” to have join forces with her ex-husband Robert “Mutt” Lange through her 2002 album Up!

“He gave me all kinds of freedom and respected my opinions,” she said. “And I grew in that period. But when that fell away, I was alone again and I didn’t know where to begin. … So I went back to square one and figured finding myself alone wasn’t such a bad thing. And maybe it was an opportunity to reacquaint myself with independence and test that independence and get back in touch with where I started, which was making my own way in life.”

Finally, with her new album ‘Now’, arriving Sept. 29, she said that she just wants to enjoy the present and restore her relationship with her fans.

“I didn’t really appreciate the fans the way I do now,” she said. “When I’m in concert, I see them as a lifeline and as people I understand and the people that I write the music for. So on this new album Now, I’m not rushing on to the future. I’m not running away from the past. I’m not apologizing for the past. I’m acknowledging the crappy times and saying, ‘I wouldn’t be here without them.’

“My only regret in all of it is that my parents are not here to see it,” she said.
