Shania Twain Biography

Shania Twain, (born August 28, 1965) is a Canadian singer and songwriter who has been very successful in the country and pop music genres, setting several sales records for female artists and for country artists.

Initially known as a country singer, Twain found little sucess. Everything changed when she met rock producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. He offered to produce her and to write songs with her. Soon their professional relationship took a romantic turn, and they were married on December 28, 1993. With Lange's influence, Shania's music then veered a bit more towards pop.

Her vocal performances strengthened by virtue of singing only the material she and Lange had written, a practice she would continue from this point on, contrary to typical Nashville practice.

Her second album, 1995's The Woman in Me, caught fire due to singles like "Any Man of Mine" and "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?". The album eventually topped the country charts for months and became a massive crossover to mainstream charts, peaking at No. 5 and topping out at 12 million sold. The Woman in Me went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Country Album as well as the Academy of Country Music award for Album of the Year; the latter group also awarded Twain as Best New Female Vocalist.
