SHANIA TWAIN: New Album Coming in the Spring

Shania Twain will release her fifth album -- and first in 14 years -- this spring.

She'd been experimenting with songs and ideas on her electronic devices over the years, so when she went into the studio, she hit the ground running. Shania tells People, “I’m a very focused person in the studio. It’s not like it’s not fun, but the joy comes in watching the whole thing grow and getting locked into that creative mode -- that’s so indulgent for me.”

The new album will feature both melancholy and triumphant girl-power songs. No word yet on a title or release date.

JASON ALDEAN: Can't Believe He's Living the American Dream

Jason Aldean went from driving a Pepsi truck to being one of hottest stars in country music. Yet he still holds tight to his blue-collar work ethic.

He tells Rolling Stone, "I didn't get into this business to have this or make a ton of money. I honestly wanted to get up and go to a job and do something every day that I enjoyed. I enjoyed playing music and never in a million years thought it would turn into all this."

But Jason says there's no substitute for hard work when it comes to achieving the American Dream.
