Shania Twain Was 'Petrified' to Make New Music


For Shania Twain, making her first new album in more than 15 years brought out a range of emotions.

In a new interview with CMT’s Cody Alan, the country legend reveals setting out to work without ex-husband and longtime producer Mutt Lang for the first time was an evolution of fear, faith and fun.

“First of all, I was petrified in even considering making another record without my 15-year collaboration with Mutt. I just didn’t know where to begin. How do I even start? Where do I start? It was a leap of faith in myself just to commit to doing it,” Shania says exclusively. “Once I started rolling and forced myself through it, it came together and I started believing more in myself—in my truth—and then eventually enjoying it. It evolved.”
