Faith Hill is getting to work on a new album. It's been a while (six years to be exact) since Faith's last studio album. Even Faith has a hard time believing it's been that long, “I didn’t even realize it had been that long, to be honest with you, until someone told me that,” Faith says. “And I even argued with them. (laughing).” It's not that she hasn't had opportunities to put out new material. “I’ve actually been in the studio a couple of times in the last six years. I’m just trying to find that spark, that thing that’s exciting for me…and that feels inspired and true and honest, from an honest place. And, finding that honesty is what is keeping Faith going, It’s important for it to be the right thing for me musically,” she adds. “It’s just the process. It’s like a rediscovery. And in the midst of rediscovery, it just takes time.”

How many dads can promise their kids that if they finish college, he will help them launch a music career? One that I can think of. Toby Keith made that promise to all three of his children. As Nashville Stew reported at the first of the year, Toby's oldest daughter, Krystal, is ready to cash in on the deal. The 25-year old recently entered the studio to start the recording process on her debut CD, with her proud father at the helm. Toby is reporting that his daughter is working hard, saying, after wrapping up the first recording session, "She sang her butt off today." While the two haven't released many details on the upcoming project, Toby makes it clear he's not letting her off easy just because they share a last name. "Unfairly, I'm probably a little harder on her," he acknowledges.
