Shania Twain

The pride of Canada, the ageless beauty and one of the most successful and celebrated recording artists in history. Born Eilleen Regina Edwards, changed her name to Shania Twain has sold over 75 million records worldwide. She is the all-time best selling female recording artists in the history of Country music. She is also referenced by some by the name the “Queen of Country Pop”.

Just after graduating high school and her band breaking up Twain started singing all over Ontario, Canada and started taking singing lessons from famed Toronto based coached Ian Garret. Twain who was just fresh out of high school would clean Garrett’s house in return for her lessons. It wasn’t easy, just as good things never are, but Twain put in a tremendous amount of work. She studied her craft day and night, she learned to play various instruments, and met rock keyboardist Eric Lambier, and drummer Randy Yurko and the trio eventually formed a band.

Twain’s story is that like very few we have ever heard about in the music industry. It’s filled with so much hurt, and sadness; from the time her mother and stepfather were killed in a car accident. To the time she moved back to take care of his younger sibling, while still learning music and performing not only to try to gain a better life but performing to put food on the table for others that now depended on her.

Eventually it would all turn around for the now country pop goddess, she saw commercial success with her album in 1995-1996 humbly labeled “The Woman in Me”. As of 2015 the album has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide and is still considered by some as a commercial success almost 20 years after it was released. A few years later Twain would release “Come On Over”, which established her as the clear cut queen of Country music as well as Country pop. The album dominated the charts for over 2 years, and has sold over 42 million copies worldwide to date making it the bestselling album by a female in the pristine history of music.
