Shania Twain is ready to "hang up her hat" after her extremely popular Vegas show.

The country superstar announced on Good Morning America that she will be going on her first tour in 11 years. She also announced that this will be her last tour.

Shania Twain told GMA's Robin Roberts that the show is going to be like an afterparty, a celebration of all that she has accomplished.

She says the show, called the "Rock This Country" tour, is going to have a "rockin'" party feel.

“This is a very, very important time on the road for me. I just feel like I’m ready to hang my hat up in that regard. I just really want to go out with a bang.”

Shania Twain has been through a lot during her long career. Beginning with almost instant superstardom, running through a messy divorce after her husband cheated with her best friend, and on to marrying her former best friend's husband, there have been a lot of ups and downs. Shania Twain said that through all of her trials, she gains a lot of strength from others, especially from her fans.

“I look to others for more strength,” Shania Twain said. “I look for the courage in others and then I find mine.”

She added, “I think that’s why I love being with the fans. I love getting out into the audience. I like hearing their stories. I like talking to them during the show.”

Shania Twain seems to have found a lot of strength, indeed. She looked pumped as she spoke about her upcoming tour. She will also be releasing a new album after her tour wraps in August.

“I want it to come out when I’m 50, so it will happen,” said Shania Twain, who will turn 50 in August. “I’m on the microphone every day recording stuff.”

She added, “I want to just enjoy that party, that celebration party, and then I’ll get back to the record.”
