According to the announcement, the doc “takes viewers from her humble beginnings in Timmins, Ontario, where she was raised poor and inspired by the story of Dolly Parton, through her initial record label signing in Nashville, and onto her career-defining moment meeting her future husband and rock producer Mutt Lange ahead of writing, recording and releasing her breakthrough album ‘The Woman in Me.’” It features studio session footage from throughout her career and brand new interviews with Twain at home, and discussing her forthcoming sixth album.
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. “She reached through the stereo and made me feel safe when I was a young kid,” says Orville Peck.
In addition to the documentary, Twain will release a compilation album entitled “Not Just a Girl (The Highlights)” via Mercury Nashville/UMe, which includes a new bonus title track, alongside some of her biggest hits in order of appearance in the documentary. The tracklist appears below.
