(Shania Twain on the red carpet at the 2011 Juno Awards)
Shania Twain looked fabulous at the 2011 Juno Awards on Sunday (the awards are equivalent to the GRAMMYs here in the states). The superstar attended the ceremony along with her husband Frédéric Thiebaud to be formally inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Twain got a bit emotional when she gave her thank you speech.
“I really am turning into such a sap. This, ah, is just a very beautiful moment for me,” Twain said (Via TasteOfCountry.com). “I’m really so proud of Canada’s talent, world class talent, songwriters, singers, performers. We should be proud of these people. They’re just blowing me away, and I guess I have more pride in what country has created musically than I am even of my own success. Honestly, I’m just more proud to be from Canada. This is a beautiful country.”
While backstage at the Junos, Twain admitted that while she is still having issues singing in front of people, she is currently working on a new project.
“I’m not sure exactly when I’ll be able to get back out on that stage,” said Twain (quote via the Toronto Sun). “I am preparing for it, I can tell you that. And I’m already in the studio working on new music and I’m very excited.”
In addition to working on new music, Shania is gearing up for the premiere of her new show Why Not?, which premieres on the OWN network on May 8. Plus, she will release an autobiography on May 3.
