November 30, 2003 - Despite Shania Twain's level of superstardom, the people closest to Twain say she remains a nice, down-to-earth Canadian gal. "Talking to Shania is just as easy as talking to you," says Ron Sakamoto, president of Gold and Gold Productions, which has promoted all her Canadian concerts, including her stop at the Saddledome Thursday. "It's just like she's your next door neighbor."

"I went there, got up on stage, did some song and I peed my pants," she said. "I was wearing a skirt - that was a good thing because it didn't show. I had to go up there and sing like that.

And, apparently, the waterworks fly on the show. "Shania was so sweet -- she just got everybody crying," said Parton, 57, down the line from Tennessee recently in her familiar girlish trill. "She was talking about how (she loved) that song, Coat Of Many Colors, because when her mom and dad had died, I had been such an inspiration to her. It was the sweetest thing. She said something like, 'I wish my mother could be here today,' and when she said that everybody started crying. We just all boo-hooed, and I was fixing to go out and sing and I thought, 'Oh, you little sh**! You would make me cry." Read more.
