Shania's debut album - 20 years


20 years ago today, April 20, 1993, Shania Twain's self-titled debut album was released in North America. Shortly before its release, Shania sang backing vocals for other Mercury artists, including Jeff Chance's 1992 album Walk Softly on the Bridges and Sammy Kershaw's 1993 album Haunted Heart. Shania Twain only reached No. 67 on Billboard's Country Albums Chart, but it gained positive reviews from critics. The album failed to sell significant copies initially, although Twain's future success generated enough interest for the album to be certified platinum six years later by the RIAA, denoting sales of over 1 million. Shania Twain yielded three minor hit singles in the United States with "What Made You Say That", "Dance With The One That Brought You" and "You Lay A Whole Lot Of Love On Me". The album was more successful in Europe, where Twain won Country Music Television Europe's "Rising Video Star of the Year" award.
