Country music superstar Shania Twain made an impressive entrance onto the red carpet in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
The singer paraded up the Las Vegas strip on horseback to commence a 2-year headline gig at Caesar's Palace ahead of a herd of 40 horses during the spectacle.
Deemed a stampede by promoters, Twain greeted hundreds of fans at Wednesday's event at Caesar's.
The horses moved at a slow gait with help from nine wranglers, and several Las Vegas police officers diverted traffic on the busy casino street for about 30 minutes, according to the Associated Press.
All the while, some of the singer's hit songs such as "Man, I Feel Like A Woman" played as Twain made her way to a temporary outdoor stage near Caesar's famous fountains.
Twain's show, entitled "Shania: Still the One," opens on Dec. 1.
On Twitter, the Canadian singer has kept fans posted on the progress of the upcoming show.
"In deep discussion with my director, Will, at rehearsals," Twain posted on Monday.
She also added, "My first favorite moment in the Colosseum in Vegas! A genuine welcome hug from music hero Elton John backstage in 'our' dressing room!"
Ceasar Palace's nearly 4,300-seat Colosseum venue also hosts Elton John, Celine Dion, Jerry Seinfeld, and many others.
Born Eilleen Edwards, Twain is a 5-time Grammy Award-winner with three albums certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America. She is the second best-selling artist in Canada behind Celine Dion.
Twain's hit songs include "Party For Two," "I'm Gonna Getcha Good," and "Forever and For Always," among many others.
The 47-year-old singer and songwriter is one of the best-selling country music artists of all time. Twain has sold over 75 million albums worldwide.
Meanwhile, Twain stated that she is working on recording a new album while speaking with Up! magazine in September. It would be the singer's first album since 2002.
