In the '90s, Shania Twain became a household name when her pop and country songs dominated the charts. She captured the attention of legendary music producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange in 1993, and the two collaborated to create Shania's album The Woman in Me—which sold more than 12 million copies and turned Shania into the best-selling female country artist of all time.
Shania's personal life was also on the rise. After a six-month whirlwind romance, she and Mutt married. Shortly after their wedding, the couple got back into the studio to record Shania's album, Come on Over. It became the best-selling album by a female artist ever.
Then in 2002, at the height of her career and with five Grammys under her belt, Shania walked away from it all. She and Mutt moved into a Swiss château to live a quiet life with their young son, Eja. Unfortunately, wealth and fame couldn't shelter Shania from pain in the public eye. Six years later, she made headlines when her 14-year marriage fell apart and she says she discovered Mutt was having an affair with her closest friend.
Today, in her first television interview in more than five years, Shania opens up about the secrets of her past, the betrayal and the crisis that caused her to literally lose her voice.
