Shania Twain's upcoming "Rock This Country" tour may be her last, but after her two year Vegas residency the Canadian country music star says she can't wait to get out on the road.
"The Las Vegas show was such a big spectacle and this giant challenge and a mountain I had to climb to even get back on stage again," she tells Ben Mulroney in a two-part etalk first interview. "By the end of that show, after two years, I started to think, I can't end this way. I've got to get out on the road. I've got to get on the road!"
The 48-city tour kicks off June 5 in Seattle, WA, and includes stops in nine Canadian cities.
Now 49-years-old, Twain has come a long way since growing up in Timmins, Ont. Her many career accomplishments include selling 75 million records and winning five Grammys. Still, she has moments of disbelief at her success.
"It's very hard to believe that I started where I started and ended up where I ended up," she says. "I always had a strong idea of what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be... but to be able to anticipate, no. To me it was impossible... I have to pinch myself everyday."
