Shania Twain, the Canadian singer-songwriter, has been confirmed as a presenter at this year's Cmt Awards. Shania Twain, whose last appearance at the annual Country Music Television bash came seven years ago, will present an award at next week's ceremony.
Since splitting from her husband Robert Lange in 2008, Twain has been largely absent from awards ceremonies. She has also struggled with vocal problems, and hasn't released a studio record since 2002's 'Up!' However, Twain has been confirmed as a surprise addition to the evening's list of presenters, which also includes Justin Bieber and country music's new star Scotty Mccreery. The 18-year-old, who scooped the American Idol last week, is expected to present an award with runner-up Lauren Alaina. Dancing With The Stars winner Hines Ward will also be in attendance, as well will Sheryl Crow. Stars expecting to perform live include Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith and the Zac Brown Band. Twain is currently documenting her return to music in the new television series 'Why Not? With Shania Twain', which premiered on Oprah Winfrey's network on 8th May 2011. The show follows the singer-songwriter as she sets out to recapture her past success, visiting doctors and vocal coaches along the way.
Shania Twain recently announced that she will release her first single in six years, 'Today (Is Your Day)' in June. The singer is planning to return to the studio this year to complete work on her fifth studio album.
