Shania Twain is Las Vegas-bound!

The country star and new author is going the way of Céline Dion, landing a residency show on the Vegas strip.

“I will let my imagination run wild,” she told reporters Wednesday at a press conference to announce the deal. “I’m going to go nuts creatively.”

The show, titled Still The One, will open Dec. 1, 2012, and run for at least two years at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum showroom.

Committing to the series of shows – as well as releasing a book, she says – were big steps in helping her recover from a tumultuous time that included getting divorced and losing her voice.

“It’s been a healing year,” says Twain, who married Frédéric Thiébaud in January.

“I’ve learned how to commit myself and put that into healing, instead of fear and anxiety, which is a big turnaround.”
