Shania Reveals Her Struggle to Oprah – Will Sing Again
Twain is quoted on the show as saying that not only was she devastated by the collapse of her marriage from Mutt Lange, but she feared she would never sing again. The end of her marriage was particularly hard, considering that her best friend and husband had apparently fallen for each other.
Mutt Lange was not only Shania's husband, but her producer and co-writer as well. The two were responsible for one of the most succesful country/crossover albums of all time "Come on Over".
"I hadn't written a song without this man in 14 years....How do I even get started?," she said.
As if her marital struggles weren't enough to occupy her mind, Twain revealed to Oprah that she also suffers from dysphonia, an ailment where the muscles squeeze the voice box.
Twain chronicles all her struggles in her new book, "From This Moment On" and a documentary series "Why Not?" that debuts on Sunday on Winfrey's cable TV network OWN.
She also announced on Tuesday that she would be attending the Country Music Association festival in Nashville in June -- and handed out passes to Winfrey's studio audience.
I recently wrote an article in which I said I thought her song "Still the One" was the 11th greatest country song of all time.
I'm sooo happy to see Shania not only surviving, but thriving.
