Shania has done so much not only for Country music, but for all musci in general that she really deserves to be inducted. She's opened doors for the artists of today with her originality so they can do it their way and be successful. She's broken records and has record sales that most artists can only dream of. Shania is my favorite singer and I hope that she'll be one of the 2019 inductees into the Rock n' Roll hall of fame!

What the hell? How are YES votes leading the pack? She's done nothing original whatsoever. Just a series of banal, high selling country-pop albums.

Obviously people disagree. Shania's music created a whole new style in country, helped bring more focus on women to the foreground in a male dominated genre, she is like one of 5 females to ever win Entertainer Of the Year and she is probably the most globally successful country artist of all time. It isn't exactly common in country music for that kind of female dominance.

Shania deserves everything! She's the best singer/songwriter in the whole world. She's my idol and I really hope to see her as one of the 2019 inductees into the Rock n' Roll hall of fame!

Granted there singers with stronger voices, but there is no one who can compare to Shania when it comes to a riveting performance. This lady has written some incredible songs to date and I'm confident she has not written her best so far. She came to us when the music industry needed a shot of something new to cure the mediocure offerings of that time. Shania came along like a breath of fresh air. She gave us something very new and different. It still is! She has been said to be the "total package", and that she is. She is a singer, songwriter, marvelous perfomer/video artist and extremely intelligent person. Most important though, is that she is a good person inside and out. That said, I believe she deserves to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame because she brought a new sound to music, she brought people to country music who otherwise wouldn't have been there, and she opened doors for many of her peers to perform in a way that was not there before. A very important reson though is that Shanis really doesn't have a genre. Hers is the Shania Genre. It is some country, some rock, some, blues, and a little bit of many things. Shania is one of a kind like Elvis, and that is why she deserves to be inducted when her time comes.

Shania has has changed country music forever.

Shania has made a new brand of music that cannot be difined, she has worked her way up from the bottom, and most of all Shania gives back, with charities, and in her highly inclusive concerts when at a Shania concert fans don't just watch the show they are the show. Fan or not just read the concert reviews!

Her success is due more to her looks and image than to musical talent. She certainly makes my Smoking Hot Women Hall of Fame - a far greater honor.

Shania is a great talent. She writes all her own music, vocally she has a beautiful, toneful voice with a great sense of melody and pitch and can project a wide array of emotion and character into her singing without sounding pretentious, and when it comes to live performance very few women can match her stage presence. From an influence and innovation standpoint, when you look at things objectively Shania is clearly the most important artist in country music of at least the past 15 years, not to mention one of the few to actually make a global breakthrough.

Shania should easily be in the hall of fame when she is eligable.It is not just the fact that she is one of the most successful and biggest artists of alltime in pop,country rock.It is how she changed and transformed one genre all by herself and blew the doors wide open for woman in country music.Shania can do it all and has always been in charge of her career, she is one of a kind.

Thats good...they can induct her into the COUNTRY music Hall of Fame, then!

It's Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame people, not country or pop. Shania or Madonna have no place getting this honor

Shania ripped Aerosmith off on her song "Feel Like A Woman". Just listen to "Uncle Salty" from the Get Your Wings album and you will hear what I mean.

Absolutely NOT. She's not a rock star, and is not much of a country one either!

Posted by maddog on Saturday, 06.13.09 @ 20:56pm

I would say yes if there weren't a whole bunch of other ppl who were way more inflential still waiting their turn. She definitely had a huge impact on music. And as for her ripping off Aerosmith, I don't know if she did or didn't but research half the music that many of the inductees made and see if they didn't rip someone off along the way...
