Canadian singer-songwriter Shania Twain is also known as the "queen of country pop" after selling over 90 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in the history of country music.
The Windsor, Ont., native's renown extends well beyond country music, too: She received five Grammy Awards, stars on Canada’s Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame and an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
Twain’s song “Any Man of Mine” is a fan favourite. The country pop single was Twain’s first number 1 hit on country radio, won single of the year at both the CCMA and CMA Awards in 1995, and it was nominated for both best country song and best female country vocal performance at the 1996 Grammy Awards.
In 2004, the Canadian country star took a break from singing and performing — fans later found out that she was suffering from lesions on her vocal cords. Specialists diagnosed Twain with dysphonia, a treatable condition. In 2012, she came back to performing and her 72-concert Rock This Country tour in 2015 was billed as her farewell.
However, in July 2017, the "queen of country pop" released a new single called “Life’s About To Get Good;” her upcoming fifth studio album, Now, has a release date of Sept. 29, 2017. After a long musical drought, country fans will be able to watch Twain perform on her Shania Now tour in 2018.
Twain has learned a lot in her career and life thus far. She shares a few words of wisdom with her fans in the video below.
