Shania Twain was born in Windsor, Ontario on August 28, 1965. She is the daughter of Sharon Morrison and Clarence Edwards. The couple divorced and Sharon married Jerry Twain. She has three siblings: Jill, Carrie Ann, and Mark (half brother).
She attended Timmins High and graduated in 1983.
Shania was first married to producer Robert John Lange and they had one son, Eja. The couple divorced in June 2010. A year later, Shania married executive Frederic Thiebaud.
Shania started singing when she was just eight years old, often performing in bars between midnight and 1 a.m. to put groceries on the table. When she was 13, she performed on the CBC’s “Tommy Hunter Show.” Throughout high school, she was part of a band called Longshot. When the band came to an end, she was approached to join a group called Flirt, which toured across the province of Ontario.
Shania still took singing lessons and honed her craft. She was eventually noticed by many influential people, including Toronto DJ Stan Campbell, radio personality Tim Denis, and country singer Mary Bailey, who eventually became her manager and took her to Nashville to record songs.
She returned to Timmins to take care of her younger siblings after the death of Sharon and Jerry. She still performed music, earning a modest living. Once they grew up, Shania put together a demo tape and finally got the attention of record executives, who gave her a contract. In 1993, her first album was released in North America called “Shania Twain.” It was critically acclaimed, but was only a modest commercial success.
Shania continued her country music career, even though she wanted to concentrate on rock. She released several more albums that were both critical and commercial smash hits. Many songs became immensely popular, including “You’re Still the One,” “Come On Over,” “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and “You’ve Got a Way.”
In 2011, she published an autobiography titled “From This Moment On.”
The artist has received multiple awards, distinctions, and honors, such as the receiving a star on the Hollywood and Canada Walk of Fames, the Officer in the Order of Canada, and CMT’s Artist of a Lifetime.”
Shania recently made headlines for saying she would have voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Because it angered a lot of people, she issued an apology on Twitter for her comments a day later.
It was also recently announced that she would host a country music competition series for USA Network.
Outside of singing, she is a vegetarian, a follower of Sant Mat, and a resident of Corseaux, Switzerland.
We estimate that Shania Twain’s net worth is $400 million (2018).
So how much is $400 million really?
$400 million can purchase many chalets in Switzerland. $400 million can cover a small percentage of interest paid on the debt incurred by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.
