Overview


Shania Twain is the hottest woman in country music. With a truckload of number one hits, album sales to rival those of fellow Canadian divas Celine Dion and Alanis Morissette, scores of major awards (including a Grammy for Best Country Album), and legions of loyal fans around the world, she is the reigning goddess of New Country. But it took true grit for this sultry songbird to rise from a hardscrabble childhood to megastardom.

The life of Shania Twain is a Cinderella story plucked from a country song. After growing up in poverty in the north woods of Canada, singing in bars since the age of eight, and taking care of her younger siblings when her parents died tragically, she adopted the name Shania (Ojibwa Indian for "I'm on my way"). Signed to a recording contract, she went on to meet and marry her Prince Charming, superproducer "Mutt" Lange. Together they created The Woman in Me, the biggest-selling album by a female artist in country music history. With her latest release, Come on Over, Shania is about to reach even greater heights .

ON HER WAY is the dazzling chronicle of a dynamic, determined woman, a rags to riches story that will break your heart one moment and send it soaring the next.
