Us Weekly first broke the news of her engagement in December. Twain, who began dating Thiebaud in 2009, split from her husband, Robert "Mutt" Lange in May 2008 after he had an affair with her longtime best friend, Thiebaud's ex-wife, Marie Anne, who also managed the couple's chateau in Switzerland. In the wake of the betrayal, Twain and Frederic leaned on one another, and a romance developed.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
