There's no doubt about it: Shania Twain is the most successful female country artist of all time. Her 1998 release Come on Over is the biggest-selling country album ever, and as such, she ruled the late '90s with her blend of country and pop, and a live show that rivaled that of the biggest rockers.

As such, Twain's used to life in the spotlight — and her fans are used to knowing everything there is to know about her. A tragedy-filled childhood? Yes, we know about that. A messy, and very public, divorce? Check. A career that inspired countless others to pursue their dreams? The next generation of female artists can attest to that!

But do you know about the first song Twain ever wrote? Or her ex's (kinda awful, TBH) nickname for her? Or how she got her stage name? Read on to learn a few things you might not know about one of country music's biggest stars.
