Twain was born in Windsor, Ontario, and raised in the little, rural town of Timmins, Ontario. As a child, she found out to play guitar at an early age and would certainly spend much of her time singing, composing, and playing. Early on in her musical development, her moms and dads pushed her on-stage, making her carry out regularly around their little town; commonly, she would certainly be pulled out of bed around one in the morning to sing at local bars, given that as a child she could only appear in the clubs after they had stopped serving liquor. In addition to bars, she sang on regional radio and television stations and community occasions. When she was 21 years old, both of her parents passed away in an automobile crash, requiring her to take duty for her 4 siblings. In order to pay the expenses and keep food on the table, she took a job singing at a hotel in Deerhurst. With the cash she earned at the hotel, she got a residence and had the household settle down.
At the hotel, she sang program tunes, from George Gershwin to Andrew Lloyd Webber, in addition to a little country. Twain stayed there for three years, at the end of which all of her brother or sisters had started lives of their own. When she was finally independent once more, she put together a demo tape of her tracks, and her manager set up a display show in Canada. Twain caught the attention of a couple of insiders with the concert, and within a couple of months Mercury Nashville had actually signed her to their roster. Her eponymous debut album was discharged in 1993, and although it wasn't a significant hit, it carried out respectably in the United States, introducing two small favorite singles, "Exactly what Made You State That" and "Dance with the One That Brought You"; in Europe, the album was more successful and Country Music Television Europe named her Rising Video Star of the Year.
Soon after the release of Shania Twain, the vocalist fulfilled and fell in love with Robert John "Mutt" Lange, a hard rock producer known for his work with AC/DC, Def Leppard, Foreigner, and the Cars. Lange had been wishing to move into nation new music for a while, and after hearing Twain's debut album, he determined to get in contact with her with the purpose of tackling an album. By the end of the year, the pair had actually married and begun tackling her second record. The two either wrote or co-wrote the product that at some point formed The Woman in Me.
