It was just about this very same week back in 1995 when Shania Twain hit the top of the Billboard country chart with “Any Man of Mine,” a song that quickly became an anthem for women everywhere. Written by Shania and her then-husband Mutt Lange, the song was Shania’s very first No. 1 single and also her first crossover hit when it reached the Top 40 on the pop charts. The song was featured on her multi-platinum selling album, The Woman In Me, which won the 1995 Grammy for Best Country Album and ACM award for Album of the Year.
The video for “Any Man of Mine” was filmed in Santa Ynez, California and directed by John Derek and Charley Randazzo. In the video, Shania is on a ranch, riding horses, herding cattle and driving pickup trucks. She raised eyebrows – and the pulse rates of men everywhere – by wearing jeans and a midriff baring jean vest while dancing around in a field. The video won the Canadian Country Music Award for Video of the Year as well as AOL’s Online Music Award for Hottest Country Video.
