BIOGRAPHY

Shania Twain is a country singer-songwriter who is best known for her albums "Come On Over" and "Up!"

Shania's first professional music experience was as the singer for a Canadian cover band, "Longshot." She then was invited to become the lead singer of another local cover band, "Flirt," and toured with the band around Ontario, Canada. In 1993 she began recording her first demo and was noticed by major record labels, including Mercury Nashville Records, with whom she signed shortly thereafter. Her self-entitled album, "Shania Twain," was released in 1993 and gained critical acclaim. Two years later in 1995, she released her second studio album, "The Woman in Me," which led to her breakthrough in the country music industry. Her first single, "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under," rose to the number-eleven spot on the Billboard Country Chart within two weeks of its release. Because of her album's success, she was chosen to perform in two CMA Fan Fair concerts, on the "Late Show with David Letterman," and at the Billboard Music and American Music Award shows. She received the Grammy Award for Best Country Album and the Academy of Country Music's Album of the Year award for "The Woman in Me."

Her third album, "Come On Over," achieved success on both country and pop charts, with singles like "You're Still the One," "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" and "That Don't Impress Me Much." "Come on Over" remained on the charts for two years, becoming the biggest-selling album of all time by a female musician. She has since released two additional albums, "Up!" in 2002 and "Greatest Hits” in 2004.

In 2011, Shania published an autobiography, "From This Moment On.” The same year, Shania was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
