SHANIA OPENS UP ON PRIMETIME SPECIAL

Shania Twain is back on the music scene after taking a couple of years off, and everyone wants to know what she's been up to.

Now's your chance to hear it from Shania herself -- she will be talking to Katie Couric tonight in the primetime special "Katie At Night."

In the interview, Shania talks about her son, Eja, her move to Switzerland -- and much more. She also talks about how her parents' deaths and how it affected her musically. "I had to make a decision," she says. " 'Am I going on with music? Am I quitting altogether?' My mother had more passion than I did for music. And now that was gone."

"Katie At Night" airs Tuesday night at 10 p.m. on NBC.

In other Shania news, now that her album, "UP!" has been released, the next question is: When will she tour?

Although there is no official date yet, we've heard that she's shooting for late 2003.

"I'm really looking forward to getting on tour again. I enjoy being up on stage, singing my songs and doing my thing," says Shania in an interview. " For me, being on stage in concert is like being at a party with a bunch of friends. I'm really a bar singer that ended up on a concert stage, to be honest. I mean, I started off in bars from a very young age, when I was eight years old, and that's what it feels like."
