Shania Twain opens up in "The Big Interview" with Dan Rather

AXS TVShania Twain sits down with Dan Rather for The Big Interview Tuesday. 

In the new episode, the country/pop superstar looks back on her career and opens up about the difficulties of making her first album in 15 years, NOW

“The greatest fear for me was just getting started, just taking that step forward," Shania tells the respected newsman. "Once I claimed that place and that courage, it was all fun and exciting.”

In the end, Shania says she wanted the new record to be upbeat, but that posed its own set of challenges.

“That meant I was going to have to be very transparent," she explains. "I was going to have to be very honest, and direct, and candid about -- my emotions, my feelings, my thoughts…. so I do hope that they take away my intentions, which are to inspire them and to relate to them on a very day-to-day and realistic level.”

You can watch Shania's new episode of The Big Interview with Dan Rather Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on AXS TV.
