Shania Twain is currently in the midst of her second residency in Las Vegas, this one being hosted at Planet Hollywood's Zappos Theater. The show is a mix of country and rock, along with some stripped down acoustic numbers.

“I see myself in more of the realm of a Stevie Nicks,” Twain told PEOPLE while talking about her style. “I grew up singing rock. I grew up singing country. I could have just focused on one genre, but that’s not who I am. I meld things I’ve gotten influences from. I’m a little bit of a hybrid artist. I’m not a purist.”

Twain's last residence, called "Still the One" ran from 2012 to 2014. While on a two major tours the last few years in support of her latest album, Twain says the idea to do another residency came to her.

“Halfway through that last tour I thought, I think I’d like to be back on another residency,” she said. “I think the only place that I would really want to be in one place is Las Vegas.”

She went on to say that she'd love to do a full acoustic show at some point.

“I’d love to do a whole acoustic show. I don’t know if you’re going to be bored with that though. People are so used to seeing me rock it out. I liked that they were into the mood of it," she said, in reference to her stopped down version of "You're Still the One."

She goes through eight costume changes during the show.

“It’s so important for me when I go to a show that I enjoy the visual,” she said. “I’m intrigued by the visual. I like things that sparkle and, from a practical standpoint, things have to be comfortable. I have to be able to sing and move. I can’t be distracted… You’ve got to build the wardrobe to the set.”
