Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame has a new addition with country superstar Shania Twain opening her exhibit, Rock This Country on Friday, June 30.
With Shania's countless accomplishments and accolades, the exhibit could easily be around for eternity to highlight everything she has done in her illustrious country career. The display features outfits and memorabilia that define prominent periods of Twain's journey as a country musician, not unlike the spectacular gold lamé suit she wore at the Tuesday night gathering.
The Tuesday night teaser to her upcoming exhibit attracted a variety of country stars, including fellow singer and self-proclaimed super fan Kelsea Ballerini. Shania's Rock This Country showcase opens tomorrow and is slated to run through July 15, 2018.

During the exhibit's soft opening, the country sensation expressed gratitude towards mentors, family, and role models that helped her along her career in an emotional address. “For now, I choose to live in the moment, enjoy my new music, enjoy this moment, all of you, and the gratitude that I'm feeling for being here, and how the hell I even got here. Thank you!"
Twain also acknowledged that she had “no parents to call" to say that she was struggling or to ask for a little financial help, and that her new family was “the future and whatever I made of that future." Among those she appreciates most for easing her into Nashville's Music Row as an “up-and-coming Canadian" are Buddy Cannon, Harold Shedd, and the late producer and songwriter Norro Wilson.
