Shania Gets Canadian Hall of Fame Honor

Twain, Shania 2010

Canadian songstress Shania Twain is already having a banner year and it;s just a few weeks into 2011. The newlywed has been named as this year's inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and will be formally inducted during the Juno Awards on March 27.

Shania's trophy cabinet already holds a solid dozen Juno awards and she's sold more than 45 million albums in North America.

"Shania Twain revolutionized the look and sound of country music, and truly is one of the most accomplished and celebrated music artists of her era," said Melanie Berry, president and CEO of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, in a statement. "We're so proud to honor her at home in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame."

The singer has plenty more in the works for this year—she will host her own TV show, Why Not? With Shania Twain on the Oprah Winfrey Network, and will release her autobiography later this year.
