The year was 1997. The album? “Come on Over” by the one, the only, Shania Twain. If you don’t know this album already you need to get to know it. If you know it already it’s a great time for a refresher. When it came time this week’s #tbt playlist I couldn’t just pick one song by Shania so I decided to dedicate the entire post to my favorite album of hers. This album helped shape my love for country music. It has so many great girl anthems that are missing from current music. And to be honest, this album just kicks some serious ass. I challenge you to find another that feels as good to sing at the top of your lungs while driving with your gals around town.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with Shania, she was born and raised in Canada. Her song writing abilities landed her a record deal but it wasn’t until she paired up with Robert Lange (her future hubby) that things really started to take off in her career. Her first major hit was “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under“. Two years later she released the “Come on Over” album to continue her string of success. To date Twain has won countless awards including 5 Grammy’s, 4 ACM’s and 5 AMA’s.
Although this album is phenomenal from top to bottom there are a few favorite tracks of mine that I must point out…
1. “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!” – I never have and never will get sick of this song…it makes you want to run around in a button down doing the Tom Cruise slide while singing into a hair brush
10. “You’re Still the One” – To this day one of the most romantic songs I know. It just melts my heart and you can picture a couple dancing to it at their wedding.
11. “Honey I’m Home” – One word…sassy.
