After 12 years since releasing the critically acclaimed album Up, Shania Twain revealed in a recent interview with the Las Vegas Sun, that she ready to get back into the studio.

“The success here in Las Vegas has given me a confidence that I have not had in years, even in past tours,” she said. “I really have been able to build up a lot more courage and a lot more confidence in myself. Yeah, I’m ready for more things now.”

Two-years in Vegas has given her the courage to stir up some new hits.

“Being with these giant crowds was very exciting, and it’s motivated me to carry on doing that,” she added.

Well Shania, we can’t wait to hear what’s in store! Are you excited about the new album? Leave us a comment!

Jason Aldean scored it big with “Burnin’ It Down.” The song has gone 1 for the 12th time and is featured on his new album, Old Boots, New Dirt.

But did you know this song was actually cowritten by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard? It was supposed to be a hit for the group, but they couldn’t release it for a another year.

Tyler Hubbard told ABC News Radio “The timing was tough on it. We were listening to it one day, and I think it was B.K. that said, ‘Hey dude, I think Jason would kill this song. We should try to give it to him, and at least let him hear it.’

And the next thing they knew, he was cutting it.

The duo praised Jason for his take on the song, and have since seen tremendous success on their own with the chart topping hit “Dirt” and latest single, “Sun Daze.”

They are currently special guests on Aldean’s Burn It Down Tour.
