Shania Twain to be inducted into Canadian Music Hall of Fame

Shania Twain will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame on March 27 during the 2011 Juno Awards in Toronto. A 12-time Juno Award winner herself, she’s sold over 80 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy awards, as well as 26 Canadian Country Music Awards. In 2003 she received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame and in 2005, she was invested as an officer with the Order of Canada. The 45-year-old Canadian singer is currently preparing to launch a show called Why Not? With Shania Twain on Oprah Winfrey’s cable channel. “Shania Twain revolutionized the look and sound of country music, and truly is one of the most accomplished and celebrated music artists of her era,” said Melanie Berry, president and CEO of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, in a statement. “Her authenticity as a songwriter and performer has made her a global powerhouse, and we’re so proud to honour her at home in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.” The 40th Juno Awards ceremony will be hosted by Drake and broadcast live on CTV.
