Shania grew up in Windsor, with parents Clarence and Sharon Edwards, and two sisters named Carrie Ann and Jill. At the age of two, her parents divorced, and her mother Sharon remarried to Jerry Twain, who adopted Shania and her two sisters, while Sharon gave birth to Shania’s stepbrother Mark. Shania began singing in bars when she was eight, and mainly did it to help her family as they often had little to no money – she wrote her first songs such as “Just Like the Storybooks” and “Is Love a Rose” when she was 10. At the age of 16, Shania was offered support to record her first album in Nashville in the US, and obtained her US papers thanks to Jerry Twain, her stepfather, as he is a Native American (Ojibway).
Shania’s childhood was not easy, as her mother and Jerry were often fighting, and they occasionally had no money for food leading to Sharon taking her children to a homeless shelter for help in the summer of 1979, but returning to Jerry in 1981. Shania was studying at the Timmins High and Vocational School when she was invited to perform in the “Tommy Hunter” CBS show, which helped her become part of the Longshot local band.
Her career was officially launched in 1983 when she left Longshot, and became part of the Flirt cover band – they went on to tour Ontario together, until Shania was noticed by Stan Campbell, a Canadian DJ, and he took her to record free demos. She signed a contract with Stan, and practiced singing and playing the guitar for several hours each day – she began singing country music, although she tried unsuccessfully to switch to rock or pop. Shania’s mother and stepfather died in a car crash on 1 November 1987, and Shania moved back home to take care of her sisters and brother, while simultaneously performing at the Deerhurst Resort to provide money for them.
She released her self-titled debut album in 1993, which reached #67 on the US Country Albums Chart – the album was not an instant success, but steadily sold more over the years, and was certified platinum after six years as it had sold more than a million copies. Her second album “The Woman in Me” was released on 7 February 1995, and two of its singles reached #11 and #40 on Billboard Country Chart and Billboard Hot 100 – by 2007, more than 12 million copies of the album were sold. She released her third album “Come on Over” in 1997, and fourth – “Up!” – on 24 December 2003, in which she officially switched to pop music – her “Greatest Hits” album was released in 2004, then she took a six-year break before recording her next single, “Today Is Your Day”.
Shania’s latest album is entitled “Now”, and in September 2017 reached top place on the Billboard 200 chart.
