Shania Twain is known as the “Queen of Country Pop”. Her first three albums (Shania Twain, The Woman in Me, Come On Over) sold over 10 million copies worldwide. She toured worldwide and sold out venue after venue with hundreds of thousands of tickets.
Shania soon after went into retirement until Las Vegas came calling. She took up residency there until she announced her final tour in 2015. She crisscrossed North America selling out venues everywhere she performed.
Shania Twain, from Windsor, Ontario, is the best-selling female country artist in history. Growing up, Shania, had a very poor childhood. She would often perform at local bars to earn money for her family. She sang in bands all during high school but after graduation she decided to go solo. Good choice.
After a few trips to Nashville, she released her self-titled debut album which broadened her fan base but fell flat as a national hit. The Woman in Me, her second album, was released in 1995 and changed her life forever. The album featured the singles, “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” and “Any Man of Mine” and “No One Needs to Know”. She married her producer and songwriter Robert John “Mutt” Lange from that album.
Come On Over, released in 1997, went on to be her most successful album selling over 20 million albums. The album featured the singles “You’re Still the One” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” and led to her first national tour. She sold out venue by venue by selling thousands of Shania Twain tickets.
One more album would follow with, Up!. After supporting that album with Shania Twain tour dates she went into retirement and didn’t reemerge until her Las Vegas residency.
