Talk about a massive comeback to the forefront of country music! Shania Twain will be honored as part of Billboard’s 11th Annual Women in Music event, held December 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on December 12.

Twain will receive the 2016 Women in Music Icon Award, which celebrates an artist whose historic contributions to the music industry establish them among the highest class of performers.

“Shania Twain is a groundbreaking artist whose successful country-pop crossover blazed the trail for a new generation of country stars like Taylor Swift, Billboard’s 2014 Woman of the Year, and Carrie Underwood,” said Janice Min, President and Chief Creative Officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “She’s fearless in her career, following her own path and pushing the boundaries of the country music genre as she creates music that has proven to be timeless. She is revered in the industry and we are honored to present the Icon award to her.”
