A global icon's career-spanning documentary.

Shania Twain has been given the documentary treatment.

Not Just A Girl is the story of a woman who wanted to make her own way, completely independent of anyone else; the story of an artist who took enormous risks.

The film traces her emergence as a crossover artist, defying the stereotypes of what it took to be a country star, and takes viewers through her vision during Come On Over to become a global pop phenomenon. Shania took universal ideas of confidence, femininity, and self-discovery and made them relatable. It also touches on Shania's impact on the LGBTQ+ community and artists across every genre today.

“Shania Twain brought a rebellious spirit to the genre that hadn’t existed for a couple of decades,” says music journalist Eve Barlow.

Among the guest voices in Not Just A Girl are Lionel Richie, Diplo, Avril Lavigne, and Orville Peck.

“She was a trailblazer,” says Lionel Richie.

Orville Peck: “She paved the way for musicians everywhere.”

Shania will also release a compilation album Not Just A Girl (The Highlights), which includes a new bonus title track, alongside some of her biggest hits in order of appearance in the documentary.

Shania Twain’s Not Just A Girl, Netflix documentary and album drops on July 26.
