This Woman is the seventh studio album by LeAnn Rimes released on January 25, 2005. While promoting This Woman, she stated that it was her return to her "roots", country music. In essence, the album has a strong theme of love, falling in love and marriage. This could be due to LeAnn's own marriage to her back up dancer Dean Sheremet. The album was a success on the country charts. Like Twisted Angel, Rimes helped pen tracks on the album ("You Take Me Home", "I Got It Bad" and "When This Woman Loves a Man").
Singles from the album include, in order of release, "Nothin' 'bout Love Makes Sense", "Probably Wouldn't Be This Way", "Something's Gotta Give" and "Some People". Respectively, these reached #5, #3, #2, and #36 on the country singles charts.
The album also features the track "I Dare You" which was also recorded by SHeDAISY on their 2004 album, Sweet Right Here.
A bonus thirteenth track, "Afraid to Fall", was released exclusively to US Target stores. It was also included as a bonus track on the Japanese version of the album. Rimes helped pen this track as well.
This Woman debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 with over 101,000 copies sold in its 1st week, it fell to #25 with 40,000 copies sold in its 2nd week and #40 in its 3rd week with 37,000 copies sold. The album spent 3 weeks in top 50 and a total of 47 weeks in Billboard 200. It has received gold status and sold over 618,000 copies in United States as of June 2006 by Nielsen SoundScan.
