Lange grew up in a rich family, and was given the nickname “Mutt” at a young age. During his childhood, he was a fan of music, and started to appreciate a lot of the country genre. He then attended Belfast High School and even formed a band in which he played the guitar and sang. After doing a year of national service, he formed a band in 1969 called Sound Reason; they would go on and record an album, and then almost a decade later Lange would foray into writing songs. He also started learning and becoming great at production, working with The Boomtown Rats and AC/DC, which began giving him recognition in the music industry, in particular becoming widely known for his use of multi-track recording.
After working on a few albums with AC/DC including “Back in Black’, he then worked with Def Leppard on their album “Euphoria”, though his contributions were minimal. In 1991, he worked with Bryan Adams on various songs including his hit “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”, written for the film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” which starred Kevin Costner. Recent works he’s been involved with include Maroon 5’s “Hands All Over” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”.
Mutt has won four Grammy Awards throughout his career which include “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You” as Best Song Written for a Motion Picture in 1991, “Woman in Me” as Best Country Album in 1995, “You’re Still the One” as Best Country Song in 1998, and “Come on Over” as another Best Country Song in 1999. Of course all contributed to his growing net worth.
For his personal life, it is known that Mutt was married to Stevie Vann but the marriage ended during the 1970s. During the marriage he had a relationship with Oonagh O’Reilly. His next marriage would be to Shania Twain, whom he originally met due to music interests. They married in 1993 and divorced in 2010. Before their divorce, it was reported that Lange had already started a relationship with Twain’s best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud.
