After a decade-long break from the road, Shania Twain says she's finally ready to get back on that ol' horse.

The singer will take the stage for two nights this week at the Calgary Stampede and in a new interview with The Calgary Herald says that the performances may prove to be just what she needs to finally get back out on the road. 

“I think I’m going to do more,” she says. “I guess it’s just something I’m enjoying more now than I have in a long time. Vegas has been a really good transition for me to get back onstage again, and I guess I’m enjoying it.

“So why not do more?”

Shania says that once her contract in Vegas comes to an end, she'll start thinking seriously about a tour. 

She also says that she's finally getting her ducks in a row for a new album. As for how she'll fit in with today's country stars, Shania says she's so used to doing her own thing that she isn't even worried about fitting in. 

"I haven’t really considered whether I fit in or not. Right now, it’s just not a concern. I’m just doing my thing.”

Considering that Shania pretty much launched the whole pop-country era, I'm pretty sure she'll fit in just fine. 

Shania will perform tonight and tomorrow at the Calgary Stampede and then has 10 shows in Vegas this month. Shania had said once that she was interested in extending her contract in Vegas, but no word on if she'll do that or just focus on new music and a new tour.
