By Daniel Morgan, Contributing Writer

We turned around as we heard loud drumbeats coming from the second stage of PPG Paints Arena where she, wearing a glittery black gown with matching cowboy hat, appeared in spotlight. Shania Twain strutted down the from first bowl to the main stage where I was eagerly awaiting in the front row.
