Country music icon Shania Twain recently revealed why her studio album “The Woman in Me” was “levels and levels deeper” than her debut album.

Twain appeared in a Country Music Television video on social media discussing the story behind her hit album. She says that building “The Woman in Me” started roughly 30 years ago.

In the video, Twain discusses the differences in creating “The Woman in Me” versus making her debut album.

“My debut album was made very, very, very different than ‘The Woman in Me,'” Twain recalls. “We had three-hour sessions, the vocals were done very quickly and I didn’t write the songs.”

Later in the video, Twain further explains the difference between the making of the two albums.

“The making of ‘The Woman in Me’ was levels and levels deeper,” says Twain. “It was just a whole other standard of record making.”

Shania Twain Becomes First Female Artist to Release Record With Over 10 Million Sold 23 Years Ago

Shania Twain has broken all kinds of records when it comes to music. Not just country music, but music in general.

On Nov. 17, 1997, “The Woman in Me” was certified diamond, according to The Boot. This means that it sold more than 10 million units.

Twain set a milestone for female artists everywhere. She was the first to sell this record-breaking number of units.

The album was a powerhouse with six No.1 hits. She and her ex-husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, wrote every song on the album. Her previous album had nowhere near as much success. However, after beginning to write her own songs to record she began to stick her boot into country-pop history.

Beyond her musical trailblazing, Twain has been an inspiration for young women for years. Her empowering, emotionally-charged songs have all the reasons to reach millions and millions of people.

One of Twain’s top songs, reaching Gold or Platinum in nine countries is “That Don’t Impress Me Much.” It also features one of the most amusing lines in country history, “Okay, so you’re Brad Pitt? That don’t impress me much.”
