For some she’s a guilty pleasure, for others she is a trailblazing star, but almost everybody has some place for Shania Twain in their life. Now, they can relish in her story.
A documentary focusing on the life and times of the cross-over country star, titled Not Just a Girl, is headed to Netflix later this month.
The best-selling artist has frequently been lauded as a trailblazer and some of the artists she has inspired, including Orville Peck, Lionel Richie, Diplo, Kelsea Ballerini, and Avril Lavigne, are set to feature.
From her first major label signing, through to the release of one of the ten best-selling albums of all time with Come On Over, the documentary follows the rise of an icon with her personal tales along the way.
The feature delves into the trials, tribulations and triumphs she has faced, as well as the central tenets of her artistry. As Twain says in the trailer: “Taking the risks to do things your way can be scary. You’ve got to be brave.”
And her friend Lionel Richie comments: “She was the first person to break that door open and go across the music genres. She was that trailblazer.”
The Mercury Studios project has been directed by Joss Crowley who has worked on other musical projects with Iggy Pop, Mark Ronson, and Hall & Oates.
The documentary is set to premiere on Netflix on July 26th. You can check out the trailer below.
