Shania Twain announced on Good Morning America (video below) that she is embarking on a final tour. The farewell tour, ‘Rock this Country’ will kick off this summer, followed by the release of The Queen of Country Pop’s new album later this year.

The 49-year-old country music legend made the surprise announcement of her farewell tour live at the GMA Times Square Studio where she sat for an interview. For fans the world over, it was indeed just that, a huge surprise, and perhaps too a puzzling announcement.

Shania Twain said, “I’m finally, after 11 years, I’m going back on tour,” the “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.” She went on to say, It’s the after-party tour. That’s how I see it. It’s the after-party to all of these years.”

And what years! That’s an understatement. The Canadian-born artist has sold more than 75 million albums and is known for such signature hits as “Any Man Of Mine” and is particularly known for having the best selling country music album of all time, ‘Come on Over.’ which is incidentally also the best selling album by a female artist in any genre.

While it may seem surprising that an artist who is, as noted, just 49 years old, is making a farewell, Shania Twain said of her decision, “”This is a very, very important time on the road for me. I just feel like I’m ready to hang my hat up in that regard. I just really want to go out with a bang.”

Twain also revealed that she has a new album set for release when the tour ends. She did not announce a title or a release date, but did say in the interview, “I want it to come out when I’m 50, so it will happen. I’m on the microphone every day recording stuff.” She continued, saying, “I want to just enjoy that party, that celebration party, and then I’ll get back to the record,” she said of the tour.

The tickets will go on sale for fans on March 10th and for the general public on March 13th. The announced tour itinerary, according to her official Web site (shaniatwain.com), is below, followed by the full video of her announcement.
