This is HUGE! Shania Twain is said to receive a big honor at the Billboard 2016 Women in Music Event. The event is December 9th in NYC and she will finally be able to have an award to show her iconic role in country music. Her album “Come on over” is still the the NUMBER ONE country album of all time and the second best-selling album overall since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991 “Shania Twain is a groundbreaking artist whose successful country-pop crossover blazed the trail for a new generation of country stars like Taylor Swift, Billboard’s 2014 Woman of the Year, and Carrie Underwood,” explains Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of the Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “She’s fearless in her career, following her own path and pushing the boundaries of the country music genre as she creates music that has proven to be timeless. She is revered in the industry and we are honored to present the Icon award to her.”
