It’s important to give all you have when you have the chance.
Like many other musical artists, the country music singer was born under the name of Eilleen Edwards, which would eventually be changed to her stage name Shania Twain. She was born in the town of Windsor, Ontario but her parents would split at the age of two and her mother remarried, which would change the last name of Edwards to Twain.
At a young age, to help supplement the family income, Twain would get a job at McDonald’s and begin singing in clubs and bars to help pay the bills. This was not her best time of life and would later confide in interviews that she disliked the road scene but music was her passion and would drive her to become one of the most honored female singers in country music.
The Career of Music
Her first break came at the age of fourteen when she was invited on to the CBC television show of Tommy Hunter. This would not gain her immediate success and Shania Twain went on to graduate high school before she would leave for better prospects in her musical career. Still under the name of Eilleen, she would first be discovered by a Toronto DJ who would write an article about her in Country Music News celebrating her powerful voice.
Twain was eventually whisked away to Nashville to create a more solid foundation in the country music community. She would begin performing as a back up vocalist until she met Eric Lambier and Randy Yurko, whom she would form a band with. However, she would not get her break for years to come. After touring and singing throughout the 1980’s, the 1990’s were on the horizon and still no true prospects for real success.
In 1993, she release her self titled album Shania Twain, which was released in Canada and the United States and climbed to number sixty seven on the Country Album Charts in the United States. The album was not an immediate success but would eventually go on to be certified platinum after her other successes within country music would help generate more interest in the album.
Her second studio album would be released in 1995 and was titled The Woman in Me that featured the single Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under, which would climb to number eleven on the Billboard Country Chart. The release of the single Any Man of Mine would go on to be her first number one hit later that year.
The album would go on to be a great success eventually selling over twelve million copies and would win a Grammy Award for Best Country Music Album. Her next album release titled Come On Over would eventually gain her cross categorical success and contained many hits such as Man! I Feel Like a Woman. This album would stay on Country Music Album Charts for over two years and sold forty million copies within the United States alone while selling thirty four million copies internationally.
Her career and success were now solidified. This would become one of the best selling country music albums of all time and now Shania Twain was touring relentlessly across North America to support her new found fame. She would go on to release many more albums over the next decade and win many more Grammy Awards for her efforts.
She would eventually be founded as one of the all time female country music singers. Her fans can follow her career and up coming tour dates on her official web page. Some of her music may be available as a free music download on many places on the internet.
