"I am in the process of new music, working on my next project," Spears told ET at the 2015 ACM Awards. "It's a bit of a creative time for me, which I love."
Spears has also been working behind the scenes, writing music for other performers including country singer Jana Kramer. Spears co-wrote Kramer's recent single "I Got the Boy."
Surrounded by country music icons at the ACM Awards, the 24-year-old songstress, and younger sister of pop-icon Britney Spears, couldn't help but get excited about some of the artists who inspired her own career.
"Garth Brooks is here, so I'm like patrolling, I just want to see him so badly," Spears said, siting Brooks as one of her biggest inspirations. "The Dixie Chicks, Loretta Lynn, all of those people were big influences on me as far as my love for country music."
