The queen of pop country, Shania Twain, stepped back into the spotlight this year and took everyone’s breath away! The singer-songwriter, known for her countless hits including “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Any Man Of Mine,” hit the road and even judged a new reality competition show! This country queen has impressed us so much this year so we wanted to take a minute to highlight some of her major accomplishments from 2018.
The NOW World Tour
First on our list of highlights is the artist’s 2018 NOW Tour! Twain has toured the country and the world before, but this tour was unlike any other. Twain kicked off her tour on May 3 and is set to have her final performance on December 22. NOW is the artist’s fourth headlining tour and had stops everywhere from Tacoma, Washington to Dunedin, New Zealand. We have loved seeing all of the singer’s amazing travel photos from her time on the road and we know that she absolutely killed every show! The tour was originally supposed to end in Las Vegas, but due to the high demand, the artist announced shows in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Bastian Baker, a Swiss singer known for his time on The Voice: Belgium, opened each night for Twain and definitely got crowds pumped for an amazing show. We love seeing Shania back on the road again and wish she didn’t have to wrap up this amazing tour this month!
USA’s Real Country
In addition to touring around the globe, the singer also made time to act as a judge on a new reality TV singing competition show. If you love American Idol or The Voice but wish you could just watch the country music performances, then this is definitely the show for you! Real Country is a country music showcase where new and upcoming solo acts, duos and groups can perform in front of Twain, Travis Tritt and Jake Owen for a chance to be named country music’s next breakout act! This was the first season of the show and we are hoping to see many seasons to come. Check out full episodes HERE!
TBS’ Drop The Mic
In addition to judging Real Country, Twain also competed on a TV competition herself. This year, Twain performed in a song battle against Meghan Trainor on Drop The Mic and we can’t stop watching the performance. The two singers both did amazing, but of course we have to side with Twain as the winner. Check out some of the performance below!
Crazy High Spotify Numbers
Even though Twain did not release new music in 2018, her Spotify numbers, especially for her 2017 Now album, were off the carts! With 168 million streams, 19 millions fans in 65 different countries, of course she is named the queen of pop country! Twain’s music is timeless and loved by new and old country music fans. Her tour not only brought in her old fans, but also caught the attention of younger country music lovers and put her music at the top of the charts. We know Twain’s music will continue to grace the pop and country charts and can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.
Nominated for Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award
In addition to her high numbers on Spotify, Twain was also extremely popular on other music platforms. This year, the artist was nominated for the Apple Music Fans’ Choice Award, and although she did not win, a nomination is a huge accomplishment! This award is not only within the country music category, so the fact that a country artist was nominated alongside all other genres is a big deal. We love Twain’s music and it is very clear that her fans are just as obsessed as we are!
New Video Singing “Soldier” to Honor Armed Forces
Last but not least, Twain recently released a video for her famous song “Soldier” in honor of the Canadian Armed Forces and we couldn’t be more amazed. We love seeing artists support the places they come from and this video came from the heart. In the video, we see Twain in uniform amongst the Canadian Royal Navy Troops and we love seeing the smiles on all of their faces. Check out the full video released this November below.
We hope you enjoyed our highlights of Shania’s incredible year! For more information on what the artist is up to, click HERE and make sure to let us know what your favorite Shania moments from 2018 were.
