Shania Twain was born Eilleen Regina Edwards in Windsor, Ontario.  Today in country music history, she had a CD certified 20 times platinum.  Her album "Come On Over" became the best selling album by a female of all time.

I don't mean it was the best selling country album by a female.  It was the best selling album by a female of ANY genre and the best selling country album of all time by a man or a woman. 

It was a huge success for her with hits like "Man! I Feel Like A Woman", "Don't Be Stupid (You Know I Love You)", and "From This Moment On" it soared to the top of the charts.  It was in the top 100 for 151 weeks!  It has gone on to sell 40 million copies worldwide and over 20 million of those were right here in the United States.
