Turns out yesterday’s big announcement from SHANIA TWAIN is that she’s kicking off a two-year residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.  She’ll be doing 60 shows per year.

 

 “Shania:  Still The One” will begin its run on December 1st.  (–Shania’s website has the dates and details.)Just as Carrie Underwood did before him, Kenny Chesney sat down in Nashville this week to be the guest speaker at Billboard‘s Country Music Summit. Among the topics covered by Chesney were his annual summer tour, his promise to himself to take some time off, the influence that George Strait‘s tour had on him, and the time when he played a show on his 30th birthday and no fans showed up. Watch the video below to see Kenny’s conversation…
