Shania Twain is still at the top of her game as a country music singer, songwriter, and superstar. The Canadian-born Twain continues to keep fans enthralled by not only singing new material but playing their favorites, too.

Back in 1998, Twain performed her hit song, “Honey, I’m Home!” in front of a rousing audience at the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards show.

Here’s Shania performing this amazing number on that night.

Additionally, the song was released in 1998 from her album “Come On Over.”

She continues to work and recently released “The Woman In Me: Diamond Edition,” according to her website.

Twain let her fans know about the album on Twitter.

Also, Twain recently talked about how “Any Man of Mine” became the first single released from “The Woman In Me” to the public.

Shania Twain and Her Road To Success

Twain is a mainstay of country music fans, yet her road to success has not always been kind.

According to Biography.com, Twain was a music lover early on and started writing songs at age 10.

Meanwhile, at 18, Twain decided to try and make a go of her singing career in Toronto.

She found work but didn’t make enough to support herself without taking odd jobs, which included a stint at McDonald’s.

In 1987, however, Twain’s life was upended when her parents died in a car crash. In order to support her three younger siblings (in addition to Twain’s younger sister, Sharon and Jerry had had a son together and had also adopted Jerry’s nephew), Twain returned to Timmins and took a job singing as part of a Las Vegas-style show at the nearby Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario.

However, Twain hadn’t given up on making her own music, and she continued to write songs in her free time. Her demo made it to Nashville, and she was subsequently signed to Polygram Records (which became Mercury Nashville).

Twain enjoyed success with her second album, The Woman in Me (1995), before delivering the best-selling country album in history with Come on Over (1997).

Following a lengthy hiatus due to personal and health problems, Twain returned to the spotlight with a memoir in 2011 and embarked on a Las Vegas residency in 2012.

She released her first album of original material in 15 years with 2017’s Now and made her feature film debut in 2019 with Trading Paint.
