Shania Twain shot to astronomical fame with back-to-back albums released in the mid-1990s that delivered a breath of fresh air into the country music genre. Her 1995 album The Woman in Me introduced Twain's country pop flair, with irresistible hooks and a come-hither attitude rarely witnessed with Nashville stars. But it was the worldwide success of Come On Over (1997) that transformed Twain into a global phenomenon, in large thanks to the sweet ballad "You're Still the One" and the anthemic single "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" The award-winning album dominated the charts while Twain helped bring country music into the mainstream, paving the way for future artists like LeAnn Rimes and Taylor Swift. In 2008, Twain's reign hit a speed bump after announcing a messy separation from her husband and songwriting partner Robert John "Mutt" Lange. After spending time away from the spotlight, Twain reemerged in 2011 with the documentary series "Why Not? With Shania Twain" (OWN, 2011-11 ), where she opened up about her personal life and planned her long-awaited comeback as one of the most successful female artists of all time and of any genre of music.
