'Oprah' Audience Gets Country Surprise from Shania Twain


Shania Twain let it all out Tuesday, May 3, on the "Oprah" show, dishing about her life, her new autobiography "From this Moment On" and her upcoming docu-series on OWN.
She also revealed a secret to the audience: that they were all getting two-day passes to the 2011 CMA Music Festival and accommodations at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. To top it off, Twain also announced the audience members would partake in a private brunch with her during their visit in June.
"For four decades, this festival has been about the relationship between the fans and the artists and this is a tremendous example of that bond," said CMA CEO Steve Moore. "We are thrilled to host Shania and the 'Oprah' audience at our event."
After a 15-year absence, Twain will return to the CMA Festival in 2011 to sign copies of her autobiography. Her last appearance was in 1996, when it was still known as Fan Fair. A special CMA Music Festival offer was also extended to Twain's fans through Oprah's website.
Twain's first autobiography entitled "From this Moment On" was released May 3 in bookstores across the country. Twain's OWN docu-series "Why Not? with Shania Twain" debuts Sunday, May 8.
The 2011 CMA Music Festival is June 9-12 in downtown Nashville.
