Former CMA Entertainer of the Year's First Appearance at the Festival Since 1996
            NASHVILLE - Country Music superstar Shania Twain makes her first appearance at CMA Music Festival in 15 years to sign copies of her New York Times best-seller, From This Moment On, at the Bridgestone Arena, Friday, June 10 (2:00-4:00 PM/CT).

            "I'm so thrilled to be part of the Festival," said Twain. "It is a huge reunion each year for fans and artists and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the artists I haven't seen in awhile and connecting with the fans who have been so supportive through the years."

            Twain will have lots of company. During a recent appearance on the "Oprah Winfrey Show," Twain surprised the entire studio audience with two-day passes to the 2011 CMA Music Festival and accommodations at the Gaylord Opryland Resort (June 9-10).  

            "We are thrilled that Shania is back for the 40th anniversary and bringing another 300 fans to the party," said CMA Chief Executive OfficerSteve Moore. "She is such a warm and respected ambassador for the format and her connection with her fans speaks to the heart of what makes this event such a success."

            Twain last appeared at CMA Music Festival in 1996, when it was still known as Fan Fair® and held at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds. She will return in 2011 to sign copies of her autobiography, which has been described as "revealing" and "emotionally riveting" by reviewers. The book, which was published by Atria Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, is available nationwide and will be available onsite at the Festival.

            Twain's docu-series on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, "Why Not? with Shania Twain," debuted May 8 as the highest-rated premiere to date outside of launch weekend for the network and posted triple digit growth across all key demos versus year ago Discovery Health numbers. "Why Not? with Shania Twain" airs Sunday's at 10:00 PM/ET; 9:00 PM/CT.

            Twain rose to fame in the early 1990s with her debut albumShania Twain (1993), and achieved worldwide success with her 1997 album Come On Over, which became the best-selling album of all time by a female musician, and the best selling Country Music album of all time.  A five-time Grammy award winner, Twain has also achieved major success as a songwriter, winning 27 BMI Songwriter awards. Despite the fact Twain has released very few albums, she has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide to date, including 48 million in the U.S.
            CMA Music Festival is held Thursday through Sunday, June 9-12, in the heart of Music City USA. The event supports music education in public schools through CMA's Keep the Music Playing campaign. To date, CMA has donated nearly $5 million to purchase instruments and equipment for Metro Nashville Public Schools on behalf of the artists who make appearances and perform for free.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when...

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
