Eilleen Regina Edwards was born on 28 August 1965, in Windsor, Ontario Canada, of part-Irish, Englis and French ancestry, and far better known by her stage name Shania Twain – her stepfather’s surname – is a singer and songwriter, considered to be one of the best selling artists in the music industry, and known for such albums as “Come on Over”, “The Woman in Me” and “Up!”. Although she has released only five full albums, Twain is still considered to be one of the most successful musicians, having won many varying awards, including CCMA, Grammy, Golden Pick and Juno Awards and many others. What is more, Shania has been included in Canada’s Walk of Fame and inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
So just how rich is Shania Twain, as of mid-2017? It is estimated that Shania’s net worth is over $350 million and it would be no surprise if this figure grew in the future, as Twain still continues her career which she began in the early 1980s.

Shania’s childhood was far from perfect, as her family was poor and sometimes did not even have enough food. Her parents divorced when she was still a small girl, and Shania’s stepfather also sometimes quarreled with her mother. When Shania was 10 years old she wrote her first song, and three years later she received a invitation to appear on TV in “The Tommy Hunter Show”. Twain became a part of the band called “Longshot” and began performing with the band. However, a road accident which killed her parents meant she had to take care of her younger siblings, so for some time her dreams of becoming a singer had to be put on hold. Despite this fact, in 1993 Shania released her debut solo self-titled album, and although it didn’t sell very well, Shania still gained a lot of acclaim from the critics, and this was the time when Shania Twain’s net worth began growing.
In 1995 she released her second album, called “The Woman in Me”, and this album did gain a lot of success and had a huge impact on the growth of Twain’s net worth. Over the years, but well spread-out, Shania has released three more studio albums – “Come on Over” in 1997 is the all time best-selling studio album by any female artist in any genre, and the best-selling country album, selling around 40 million copies worldwide. “Up” in 2002 and “Now” in 2017 were also very popular and acclaimed, contributing to her being the only artist to register three diamond certified albums as well as a “Greatest Hits” album in 2004.
Regardless of her success, Shania had to take a break in her career for several years, as she was diagnosed with dysphonia, effecting her vocal chords. Luckily, she was able to return to the music industry in 2012, and has embarked on a number of concert tours in recent years, certainly pleasing her fans and contributing steadily to her still rising net worth.
In addition, Shania was also a part of the television show called “American Idol” in 2009, and and in 2011 even had her own shown created called “Why Not? With Shania Twain”; this also added to her net worth.
When talking about her personal life, it should be said that Shania has been married twice and she has one child from her first marriage with Robert Lange (1993-2010) – their separation was apparently prompted by Lange’s affair with Marie-Ann Thiebaud, her best friend. Shania has been married to her ex-best friend’s ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud, since 2011.
