Nov. 17, 1997, was an historic day for Shania Twain, and for country music. It was on this day, 18 years ago, that the singer's sophomore album, The Woman in Me, was certified diamond, signifying sales of more than 10 million units.
Eighteen years ago today, on Nov. 4, 1997, Shania Twain's Come on Over album was released. The record, which remains her most successful project to date, has been certified double diamond, for sales of more than 20 million copies, in the United States alone.
Country music goes with everything. Country songs make the perfect first dance songs for newly married couples, the perfect soundtrack for a bar and the perfect accompaniment to a tailgate ... and country songs are also great for a dance party.
Shania Twain, one of the world's best-selling artists, is the whole package: an enviable singing voice, sassy personality, gorgeous looks and top-notch country-pop hits. The now-50-year-old shines in everything she does, from releasing diamond-certified albums to holding down a critically acclaimed Las Vegas residency ... and even carrying the Olympic torch!
After a break from the road to celebrate her 50th birthday, Shania Twain kicked off the second leg of her Rock This Country Tour with an almost 2-hour set on stage in Spokane, Wash, on Saturday night (Sept. 12).
When you're as famous as Shania Twain, it can be a difficult task to keep your private life out of the public eye, but we're sure that there are a few things about the country superstar that even her most loyal fans don't know.
Shania Twain is back, and she's better than ever. After a successful two-year run in Las Vegas, with her Shania: Still the One show at Caesars Palace, the 50-year-old embarked on what was supposed to be her farewell 2015 Rock This Country Tour, but now she hints that she isn't ready to ride off into the sunset anytime soon.
Through the years, there's been a major evolution in the style of country music, both in terms of fashion and in terms of the music. Cowboy boots and 10-gallon hats will always be red carpet staples, and steel guitars and banjos will always be en vogue, but the days of huge hair, rhinestone suits and super-traditional sounds seem to be gone.
