Life's about to get good for concertgoers across the country.
Shania Twain is hitting the road next month in support of her latest album title Now. And while the woman behind huge hits including "You're Still the One," "Don't Be Stupid" and "Life's About to Get Good" continues to battle Lyme disease, the singer is more than ready to put on another round of unforgettable shows.
"Lyme disease does affect your life for sure. It's such a silent evil thing," she explained to E! News' Zuri Hall. "A lot of the symptoms you just learn to live with. I was lucky that I caught it early. I did get a lot of damage but I'm not battling with degenerative organ issues so I feel very fortunate."
On a daily basis, Shania stays focused on staying in good health, staying fit and staying in a good frame of mind. She also has perspective in the fact that everyone is faced with challenges. How you respond, however, may be the true test.
"By the time you're my age, you have something. Everybody's got something in some form of their life," she joked. "I'm proud of myself on one hand for persevering."
While she's keeping details of her latest tour top-secret, Shania admitted her favorite song to perform remains "Man! I Feel Like a Woman."
Shania also described her next round of shows as "still sexy" and "something nobody has seen before."
As for her pre-show rituals, the Grammy winner revealed that things have slightly changed after learning about her Lyme disease diagnosis.
"It's more work for me now vocally because of the Lyme disease effect on the nerves in my larynges so it's like an hour and a half of like physical exercise," she explained to us. "I take a mini trampoline with me and I've got to do a real pre-show show."
