She is the middle child with an older brother and a younger sister, who teased her when they were younger. But their parents nurtured her interest in music by buying her a microphone, a keyboard, a drum kit, and several guitars. They also turned their basement into a music studio. When she became a teenager, Lavigne started performing in different country fairs all over Ontario. But while she mostly covered country classics during her performances, she started to write her compositions in secret.

After a few years in the country music scene, she got her first break in 1999 after winning a singing competition on radio, where the grand prize was a chance to perform with fellow Canadian Shania Twain in Ottawa’s Corel Centre. At least 20,000 people attended Their performance.

Later that year, Lavigne was discovered by Cliff Fabri while singing country hits at a bookstore. Fabri, later on, became her first professional manager. He sent out several videotapes of her home performances to some industry prospects. By the year 2000, Lavigne signed a $2 million deal with Arista Records.
