Shania Twain for Vegas Magazine December 2012

Shania Twain covers Vegas Magazine's latest issue, talks comeback and Las Vegas residency (scroll down for photos from her opening show at Caesars Palace).

On her 2-year residency gig at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas: “It’s so exciting. My husband always reminds me that it’s a huge part of my pleasure that I get to be so involved in the show. It has taken courage, but the achievement of getting back up onstage again and singing is rewarding. Still the One forced me into not only singing again, but producing and directing, which isn’t new to me, but on this scale it’s entirely new. So it’s opening this whole other world to me.”

On being involved in the show every step of the way: “I have written this show from the very first draft of its existence. It is a healthy distraction, to be responsible for other things and stop dwelling on ‘Did I hit that note today?’” And remember that sexy, famously daring leopard outfit from the “That Don’t Impress Me Much” music video? That’s in there, with a Vegas-worthy twist—and help from NYC fashion designer Marc Bouwer. “I’m going in a more glamorous direction, and there is more fashion than in my other tours. It’s very cinematic and expressive.”

On slowly regaining confidence and getting her voice back: “When I went through the process in the studio with Lionel Richie, and the Christmas duet with Michael Bublé—and those being more out of my range than I would normally sing anyway—they came out great. I was so happy with them, and I thought, Okay, well if I can do that, then I can do anything.” 

“I’m so confident how my voice is coming across in studio after working with Lionel and doing ‘Today Is Your Day,’” she says. “I know I am ready to go back in the studio and record an album, I just don’t have the time yet.”

On her fans: “I don’t want to lose contact with them. I don’t want to lose that element of being able to touch people and connect with them and not be separated from them. For me it’s like a dream, so to the fan it must be as well. All of the satisfaction will be magnified.”
