Shania Twain is heading to Las Vegas!

The 45-year-old country star, whose husband of fifteen years infamously fell in love with her then-BFF in 2008, will embark on a two-year gig at Caesars Colosseum in Sin City beginning in December 2012. It's the first time in seven years that Twain -- whose last album was Up! in 2002 -- has performed.

"I feel like I'm on top of the world," Twain said in a statement. "Honestly, I feel like I climbed a giant mountain."

"My whole career has been in competition. I'm not counting or anything, it takes too much energy. I'm just gonna get out there and do what I do," she said.

"The tour and radio industry is highly competitive," Twain added. "If you can survive that, you can survive Vegas."

Twain married her second hubby, Frederic Thiebaud, in January 2011 and has a son (Eja, 9) from her previous marriage to Robert John "Mutt" Lange. So how will the country star manage her home life with performing? "The schedule is being planned out in a way that I can, ya know, really get satisfaction personally and professionally," she told Us Weekly. "Of course Fred and Eja will be with me pretty much all the time I am there… I really don't like separating those two lives. They really have to go together."

Celine Dion's "A New Day" show ran in the Colosseum at Caesars Palace from 2003 to 2007. Twain will follow in her footsteps with her "Still the One" show.
