Shania Twain is back and it’s great.
The first single off her new album just about made it into the top 30 on the country charts.
I think that’s pretty good. I’m kind of comparing this comeback to the Garth Brooks comeback that began a few years ago.
Two huge superstars that had been away for awhile and need to figure out their way back to the top of the charts. Garth just did it with his latest single. But it was kind of a struggle with the handful of singles that came before that.
Will this next one be the one for Shania? It could be.
We Got Something They Don’t – Shania Twain
This one is definitely catchy. It’s pretty much unlike anything else you’ll hear at country radio right now. And that’s always been one of the really cool things about Shania. She brings new songs and new phrasing to country music. She’s never really chasing trends. She’s making the trends.
The lyrics are pretty straightforward. A woman looking at a relationships and realizing that it’s something pretty special. She’s realizing that it’s something that many others don’t have. That’s not to knock what others have. It’s just different. It’s unique. It’s something to appreciate.
This one has already cracked the country radio charts. That’s a good sign. I hope it starts building some momentum. I don’t know if it will have enough to get into the top ten or even higher. I hope I’m wrong on that.
I think it’s a great song and a great step for a country legend.
