~ Person

Legal name: Eilleen Regina Edwards


Shania Twain, OC (/ʃəˌnaɪ.ə ˈtweɪn/) (born Eilleen Regina Edwards; August 28, 1965) is a Canadian country music singer and songwriter. Referred to as "The Queen of Country Pop", she is one of the world's best-selling artists of all time, having sold over 85 million records worldwide. She is also the best selling female artist in the history of country music. Twain's 1995 album, The Woman in Me, brought her fame and sold 20 million copies worldwide, and her 1997 album, Come On Over, became the best-selling studio album of all time by a female act in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time, selling around 40 million copies worldwide. Her fourth and latest studio album, Up!, was released in November 2002. Twain is often recognized for reaching beyond all feasible music boundaries with only three studio albums.

Twain has received five Grammy Awards, 27 BMI Songwriter awards, stars on Canada's Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. She is the only female artist in history to have three consecutive albums certified Diamond by the RIAA. With over 40 million copies sold worldwide, Come On Over is the best-selling album by a female artist and the top-selling country album of all time. Altogether, Twain is ranked as the 10th best-selling artist of the Nielsen SoundScan era.

In 2004, Twain retired from performing and retreated to her home in Switzerland. In her 2011 autobiography, she cited a weakening singing voice as the reason for not performing publicly. When both her singing and speaking were affected, Twain consulted the Vanderbilt Dayani Center in Nashville. Specialists discovered lesions on her vocal cords and diagnosed her with dysphonia, all treatable with careful rehabilitation. In 2012, Twain returned to the concert stage in her critically acclaimed show Still the One, exclusively at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
