Shania Twain plans to celebrate her global #1 album on tour

Mercury NashvilleAfter 15 years without a new album, Shania Twain’s comeback is now officially an overwhelming success:  her new record, NOW, just debuted at #1 in the United States, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.

As previously reported, Shania bows at #1 on both the Billboard 200 and the country album chart in the U.S., making her the first female country artist to lead the all-genre ranking in three years. Carrie Underwood last accomplished that feat with her Storyteller record.

“This is an emotional day as I take in the great news that my new album has come in at #1,” the Canadian country/pop superstar says. “I am deeply moved to have your support and soon we will be singing the songs together in concert on my upcoming tour where I will have the chance to celebrate with you in person. Can’t wait!”

Shania kicks off her NOW Tour May 3 in Tacoma, Washington.
