Shania Twain’s ‘Come On Over’ Turns 15


Shania Twain’s ‘Come on Over’ Turns 15

By: Billy Dukes | November 4, 2012

Come On Over

It’s not an overstatement to say Shania Twain‘s ‘Come on Over’ album is the most successful country album ever. It has sold over 40 million copies worldwide after separate versions were released in Europe. Twain spent over 50 weeks at No. 1 on the Country Album charts.

Valid criticisms that she stretched too far pop to be a true country star on ‘Come on Over’ don’t hold up when one counts the 11 (yes 11!) songs that charted on country radio, including three that went to No. 1.

This historic album celebrates its 15th anniversary today (Nov. 4, 2012). The most recognizable songs fans will still find on radio today include ‘You’re Still the One,’ ‘From This Moment,’ ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much’ and ‘Man! I Feel Like a Woman.’

Twain really only released three successful studio albums during her career, a fact that seems impossible given the influence she had and the impression she left. Credit ‘Come on Over’ for the illusion that she recorded more than she actually did.

Of course, her husband, Robert “Mutt” Lange, produced this and all of her albums. Reviewers both praised and criticized his slick sound, often in the same review. Yes, the fiddles were synthesized and machines seemed to replace humans at every opportunity, but he did it really, really well. The sexy singer embraced this style and made it more than acceptable to sell her good looks along with the music. Traditionalists were furious. But an album that sells 40 million copies — plus millions of singles — is beyond reproach.

16 Years Ago: Shania Twain’s ‘Come on Over’ Earns Diamond Certification

By Gayle Thompson | April 7, 2015 2:00 PM

Sixteen years ago today (April 7, 1999) was an historic day for Shania Twain — and for country music. It was on this day that her 1997 album, Come on Over, was certified diamond, for sales of 10 million copies.

Twain’s achievement made her the first female country artist to earn two diamond-certified albums. Her sophomore record, 1995′s The Woman in Me, was also certified diamond, in 1997.

Released in November of 1997, Come on Over was certified double platinum, for sales of two million units, just one month later. The record became the best-selling country album of the 1990s and of all time, as well as the best-selling studio album by a female act in any genre of all time.

Twain released 11 singles from Come on Over, including the title track. She co-wrote all 16 songs on the record with her then-husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, who also produced the project. Three of the tunes from the album shot straight to No. 1, including “You’re Still the One,” which was certified double platinum, for sales of two million copies.

The Canadian-born country singer wrote much of the record while in the Caribbean.

“The sunny weather gets me into writing mode,” Twain shares. “Many of the songs from The Woman in Me and Come on Over were written in the tropics, so it’s a good place for me to be creative.”

Twain released one more studio album, Up!, after Come on Over. The record, which was released in 2002, sold 11 million copies but failed to produce any No. 1 hits.

Several of the songs from Come on Over, including “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You),” “Honey, I’m Home,” “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” were included on Twain’s 2015 Shania: Still the One Live From Las Vegas CD/DVD package.

Music History...

Released by Mercury Records Nashville as the lead single form Twain’s third studio music album “Come On Over”.
