Shania Twain is the Reason I am a Country Music Fan

I am so, so happy today because Shania Twain is officially back. The fact that she premiered her brilliant new single ‘Life’s About To Get Good’ during her incredible Stagecoach Festival set last night has made my week.

She is without doubt the reason I am a huge country music fan today. I was introduced to her music when I was around 8-years-old which is about the time she released her last album ‘Up!’, by my older brothers.

Since then I have been attached to the genre and now support a host of country stars including the likes of Ward Thomas,  Lady Antebellum, Kevin McGuire, Sarah Darling, and Una Healy.  But Shania is the only reason I got into country in the first place and I am forever thankful to her for that.

I think it’s the same for a lot of people in my age group as she made the genre accessible and fun to young people, with super catchy pop crossover hits such as ‘I’m Gonna Getcha Good’ and ‘Ka-Ching!’. And now her new single ‘Life’s About To Get Good’ will introduce a whole host of young kids the genre.

I am over the moon she is officially back and you can just tell she has fallen back in love with making music and performing live again. I just hope she announces a world tour soon which includes a London or preferably Cardiff date as it would be a dream to see her live.

Shania Twain is a true icon of music and she has inspired so many country and pop singers around the world and opened the genre to fans from everywhere to fall in love with country. She is just incredible.

I am so excited for her new album to drop this September. Shania Twain is back and sounding better than ever.

One to Watch: Kevin McGuire

I have totally fallen in love with Scottish born country music singer Kevin McGuire’s vocals. I only discovered his music this week after being sent his new EP ‘Foreign Country’ to review. The new record comes out April 7th.

After listening to to the EP I was left totally captivated by his stunning vocal range. Since listening to ‘Foreign Country’ I have downloaded his two previous singles ‘3am’, and ‘Everything’, and I am blown away by both.

You would never guess Kevin is from Scotland his voice sounds so authentically country you would swear he hails from Nashville. I have also had the pleasure of interviewing him and I’m glad to say he comes across as a really nice bloke.

I am really excited to see what 2017 has in store for him, he really does have the talent to go all the way. I’m hoping he will become one of the main faces of UK country because his voice really does deserve to be heard all over the world.

Make sure you go check out Kevin McGuire, I promise you will love him.
