More than 41 million albums sold in the U.S.; the top selling female artist in history; multi-platinum album sales in 32 countries including Canada, Australia, the UK, Indonesia, Holland and Norway; the sixth-biggest selling album of all time and 17 top ten songs, half of which reached #1. Shania Twain is a phenomenon.
Most amazing of all, Shania has reached beyond all feasible music boundaries with just three albums – all of which have received Diamond certification by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) for sales of 10 million copies in the U.S. She is the only artist to have three consecutive 10x Platinum RIAA-certified albums: The Woman In Me (1995), Come On Over (1997), and UP! (2002).
Twain has won a total of five Grammys, including two for best country song (“Come on Over” and “You’re Still the One”) and two for best country female vocal performance (“Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “You’re Still the One”). She also has taken home trophies from the Canadian Country Music Awards, Canada’s JUNO Awards and the American Music Awards. In 1999, Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) named Twain both country songwriter of the year and pop songwriter of the year. Her ballad, “You’re Still the One,” was named BMI’s country and pop song of the year.
In April 2010, Shania joined forces with Oprah Winfrey’s new television network, OWN, to star in a six-episode docu-series titled, Why Not? With Shania Twain. Why Not? premiered in May 2011. Twain is also releasing her first memoir in the spring of 2011 with Atria Books, a division of Simon and Schuster.
Twain currently resides in Timmins, Ontario.
