Shania Twain announced her farewell tour this week, with the 46-year-old country star saying she's "ready to hang my hat up."

Twain sat down with "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts to break the big news.

"I'm finally, after 11 years, I'm going back on tour," said the Queen of Country Pop. "It's been a long time."

The tour, "Rock This Country," kicks off June 5 in Seattle, Washington, and will wind its way through 48 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

"This is a very, very important time on the road for me," she said of the tour. "It's the after-party tour. That's how I see it."

Twain, 49, is one of the bestselling female singers of all time, having sold over 75 million albums worldwide. She saw her first big commercial successes in the mid-1990s with songs like "Any Man of Mine," "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!," and "That Don't Impress Me Much."

On Tuesday, Twain released a live CD and DVD of showcasing her recent two-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Describing her residency as a "huge mountain to climb" and "a lot of work," Twain said that the encouragement of Lionel Richie and Gladys Knight helped her succeed.

"They were just so encouraging and basically told me to get over it," Twain said. "[They said] 'Get back on the microphone. You can do it.' And they were right."

"I just needed courage, is what I really needed," she added.
