Shania Twain -- who was born Eileen Regina Edwards -- grew up in small-town Ontario, Canada and began showing an interest in making music by the age of three. She began pursuing music by the time she was 18, but in 1987, a family tragedy temporarily hit pause on those plans when her parents died in a car crash and she had to return home to support her three younger siblings. Still, she continued to promote her music, and a Nashville-based label called Polygram Records (which would soon become Mercury Nashville) soon signed her. Twain struggled for creative control on her self-titled debut album, but found massive success in the projects that followed, including 'The Woman in Me' and 'Come on Over,' the latter of which topped country charts for a non-consecutive 50 weeks and became the best-selling country album ever. She stepped out of the spotlight for a while in 2008, due to a devastating divorce from her husband "Mutt" Lange, who'd co-written and worked with her to create many of her hits. Additionally, Twain suffered from dysphonia, which affected her vocal muscles and made it difficult to sing. However, she ultimately returned with a new memoir, a dazzling Vegas residency and a series of collaborations with country's young crop, including Kelsea Ballerini and Orville Peck.
