December 1 of 2012 marks the first day of a big, big change for Shania Twain and her plans to pick up where she left off with her career.

The best selling female country artist of all time recently announced that she will have a two year residency at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas.

In a recent online news conference, Shania commented on all that's been happening to her.

“This past year has been such an amazing journey and to find myself poised to play at The Colosseum is truly magical,” Twain said.  “The Colosseum is an iconic location with unmatched energy, and I’m excited to bring a pop/country spin to the city. People from all over the world travel to Las Vegas and I’m so thrilled to be able to share my music with a truly global audience.”

So far this year, Shania Twain has received a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, just released her first memoir, From This Moment On, and debuted a documentary series on Oprah Winfrey’s new network.

She's scheduled to perform 60 shows a year at The Colosseum, the same venue where Celine Dion has a multi-year contract to perform.

Twain had been out of the spotlight since the mid-2000s. Since that time she has gone through a number of personal struggles including the break-up of her marriage, losing her voice and a fear of returning to the stage.

I am a fan.  I'm not even going to pretend I'm not.  And I sincerely hope that this just the start of an incredible comeback for her.
