Written by Robert John “Mutt” Lange and Shania Twain
Bryan White was Shania Twain’s first choice for duet partner, and the A-list pairing kept “From This Moment On” on the charts long before it was officially released as a single.
Interestingly, it’s a better showcase for White in its duet form, who turns in some signature licks and makes Twain seem a bit bland in comparison. However, it also gives the song a bit of a mid-eighties Peter Cetera vibe, which hasn’t held up well over time.
1998 | Peak: #4 (U.S.); #9 (U.K.); #2 (Australia)
Twain revamped the single for release in the pop market, replacing White’s lines with her own voice and turning it into a potent solo number. The addition of a Spanish-flavored guitar that borrowed heavily from “Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman” gave the ballad added oomph, transforming it into a wedding staple across the world.
