Country superstar Shania Twain will release an as-yet-untitled autobiography next spring, tracing her roots from a "painful" upbringing in rural Ontario to her rise to her fame and marriage and eventual divorce from producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. A documentary-type series on Twain will premiere on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network at around the same time to book comes out.
"There have been moments in my life I was concerned by the reality that tomorrow would never come. Recently I experienced one of those moments to an intensity that brought on a sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time, before I had the opportunity to share an honest and complete account of my life, in my own words," Twain said in a statement. "There are times in your life that are meant for reflection, and this was one of them. I began writing this book with a sincere respect for the past, present and future as something never to be taken for granted."
