Shania Twain has opened up about her struggle with Lyme disease and her "new voice" as a result of throat surgeries.

The country star underwent several surgeries due to the tick-borne illness, which also gave her a new voice.

"It was little by little because the surgery is invasive," Twain said in an interview with Willie Geist for "Sunday Today." "It's given me more room to play, to be honest."

"I think it's kind of sexy," she added. "I mean, it's there. I'm never gonna have my old voice again. I'm OK with that. I've found a new voice. And I like it."

Twain was diagnosed with a vocal cord disorder in 2011 and then learned she had Lyme disease.

"It was devastating," she said. "I was very, very sad about it, to the point where ... I felt I had no other choice but to just accept it."

Her fans can catch Twain performing on Friday, March 13, when Twain continues her residency in Las Vegas with a series of shows running at the Zappos Theatre through mid-December.
