Picks and Pans Review: Sound Off

LeAnn Rimes After a brief foray into pop, Rimes, 22, takes a step back to her country roots with a new CD, This Woman, land a new job: hosting USA's Nashville Star, premiering March 1.

ON HOSTING NASHVILLE STAR I was on Star Search when I was 8, so I can relate. The competition gets really tense, but that's a good thing. They have nine weeks to prepare to play in the same world as me and other [country artists]. They have to be ready.

ON STAR VS. AMERICAN IDOL With Nashville Star, they're all-around artists. They sing, write a lot of their own music, and many play their own instruments. It's not a voice or a look.

ON BEING MARRIED People say marriage is hard, but it's been great. [Dancer Dean Sheremet and I] try and do little things for each other. We have seven dogs, and at 7:30 every morning they all start barking to go out. Dean always takes 'em, but sometimes I'll sneak out of bed to do it. That's my thing that I do when I want to make him happy.
