On Nov. 16, NBC and E! announced the five-time Grammy-winning singer will receive The Music Icon Award during the Dec. 6 PCAs ceremony in honor of her record-breaking four-decade career and everlasting impact on the music industry.
And we're feelin' alright because in addition to receiving the award, Twain will take the stage to perform a medley of her greatest hits as well as her new song "Waking Up Dreaming" off her sixth album Queen of Me, set for release on Feb. 3, 2023. It will mark the country star's first return to the People's Choice Awards stage since 2005 when she won Favorite Country Female Singer.
"I'm so incredibly honored to be named Music Icon," the "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" singer said. "I have some of the greatest fans in the world. They have supported me since the early days, and it's their love and passion that keeps me going. I'm thrilled to go back on tour and bring my new music and fan favorites to them, and what better way to start than at the People's Choice Awards!"
Cassandra Tryon, SVP, Entertainment Live Events, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, added, "Shania has paved the way for many multi-genre artists throughout her impressive career as the ‘Queen of Country Pop.' Her music has withstood the test of time and her fans have multiplied over the years. We are delighted to honor her with this award, and can't wait to see her perform some of her greatest hits."
With five albums released and more than 100 million albums sold worldwide, Twain remains the top-selling female country pop artist of all time. Her timeless hits include ear worms like "Any Man of Mine," "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "You're Still the One."
In 2021, Twain kicked off her second residency in Las Vegas called Let's Go!, which sold out and continued through September 2022. In July 2022, Netflix released Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl, a brand-new, career-spanning documentary on Twain's life and career.
Hosted by Kenan Thompson, the 2022 People's Choice Awards air Tuesday, Dec. 6, at 9 p.m. on NBC and E!.
