BACKSTAGE RIDER: Country

Shania Twain

Shania Twain

Until we obtained her rider, TSG had not been a big Shania Twain fan. But then we read about her security dog and those K9 bomb sweeps. Then we learned about her devotion to both Silken Style Soft tofu and Orange cheese popcorn. Not to mention her juicing habits (which were even more extreme--10 pounds of carrots!--during her 1998 tour).

And how Shania stays so slinky while polishing off two dozen pre-show cookies is a mystery to us.

But the one thing in Twain's rider that dampens our enthusiasm for the Canadian songbird is the paltry spread she offers in the dressing room set up for the local choir performing with her that night. Twelve lousy cans of soda and some spring water for 18 performers? Hey, Shania: How about sharing some of those tasty eggless confections with the backup singers? (5 pages)
