Shania Twain fan or not, there’s no denying that the woman had groundbreaking impact on mainstream country music.
Widely known for being one of the firsts to mix pop music and country together, it’s no secret that the Canadian born singer opened doors for new listeners of all shapes and sizes.
Not to mention, she’ll go down as arguably the greatest female country music performer of all time, packing out just about any major venue she played at, and continuing to do so to this day.
With that being said, she truly put herself on the map with her second studio album ever The Woman In Me, which dropped on this date back in 1995.
Produced by her former husband John “Mutt” Lange, the album saw near immediate success, boasting hits like “Any Man Of Mine,” “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?,” “The Woman In Me (Needs The Man In You),” and “(If You’re Not In It For Love) I’m Outta Here!”
The groundbreaking album sold over four million copies by the end of 1995, peaking at number two on the US Top Country Albums in 1995, and number one on the same chart in 1996. A whopping eight singles were released from the album, which has since been certified 12-times Platinum.
Pretty damn impressive for only a second studio album ever.
