Deviant of the Day: Shania Twain Finds Her Voice
Shania Twain has yet to live by anyone’s rules but her own. From abuse and poverty to pop superstardom, Twain blazed her own trail through country music. Bucking the Nashville inner circle, she was a girl from Canada who lived in Sweden with a rockstar producer husband — and still managed to redefine the genre and lifestyle.
When the castle crumbled —
Mutt Butt Lange, her long-time husband left her for her “best friend,” and Twain discovered she suffers from dysphonia, a vocal condition where you basically can’t get your vibrato on — Twain felt lost.
Seven years later, Twain has a new memoir “From This Moment On,” and a new show on Oprah’s OWN network called “Why Not?”. Twain is reclaiming her life, her way, and taking us along for the ride.
