Shania Twain’s voice has been permanently changed after she underwent throat surgery after battling Lyme Disease. Appearing on Loose Women today the music legend opened up on how her voice has changed and how she feared for a long time she “would never sing again”.
Loose Women panellist Charlene White asked Shania: “You contracted Lyme disease, which had a huge impact on your voice, was there a moment you thought you wouldn’t be able to sing again?
She replied: “There was a long time when I thought I would never sing again.
“It took years to get to the bottom of what was affecting my voice.
“And I would say, a good seven years before a doctor was able to find out if it was nerve damage to my vocal cords directly caused by Lyme’s disease.
“I was simply out horse riding in the forest and got bit by a tick, a Lyme tick.”

Is Shania Twain still married?
The Canadian singer was previously married to Robert John Lange.
Shania and Robert tied the knot in 1993 and share son Eja who was born in 2001.
After 15 years of marriage, it was reported the pair had split in 2008.
At the time of their split, it was alleged Robert was having an affair with Marie-Anne Thiébaud – Shania’s close friend.
Shania’s love life went on to make the headlines again as she announced she was dating Frédéric Thiébaud who was married to her former friend Marie-Anne.
The 54-year-old and now husband Frédéric Thiébaud tied the knot in 2011.
While the pair share an unusual love story, Shania has previously spoken of how her relationship with Frédéric is on another level.
She told The Guardian in 2018: “Yes, it’s a passionate love on every level.

The That Don’t Impress Me Much singer added: “I used to be very monotone in my relationships.”
Shania also spoke candidly of how their relationship blossomed back in January to AARP Magazine.
She said: “It’s twisted, but so beautifully twisted.”
The country singer has previously spoken of the sweet way she found Frédéric another to Parade Magazine.
She said: “I describe what happened to Fred and me this way: we were two people who had been jettisoned from our lives as if we’d been shoved off the edge of a high cliff.
“Thankfully, we managed to grab onto each other on the way down in midair and break each other’s fall.”
