Shania Twain: Top 40 Songs

Shania Twain

Top 40 Songs

Country singer Shania Twain was born Eileen Regina Edwards on August 28, 1965, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Her self-titled debut album in 1993 went nowhere, peaking at #67 on the country chart and not even making the pop chart.

However, her sophomore album, 1995’s The Woman in Me, sold 20 million copies worldwide, making it one of the top 100 albums of all time. Her next album, 1997’s Come on Over, sold twice that number, putting it in the top ten of all time. When her next album, 2002’s Up!, was certified for eleven million, it made her the only female artist in history to have three consecutive albums certified diamond by the Recording Industry Assocation of America (RIAA).

It would be fifteen years before she released another album, 2017’s Now. It was her fifth #1 country album. During her hiatus, she dealt with Lyme disease and dysphonia as well as a 2010 divorce with Mutt Lange, who had produced her trio of ten-million-selling albums. 2023 marked the release of her sixth studio release, Queen of Me.
