The biggest unconfirmed rumor in advance of Sunday’s 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards — and likely to remain that way until the CBS broadcast from our T-Mobile Arena — is that former Caesars Palace headliner Shania Twain will be a surprise guest to premiere her debut single from her new album “Triumphant” to be released in late spring.

It’s not only her first studio LP in 14 years but also the first without her ex-husband and producer, Robert “Mutt” Lange, who created tabloid headlines for leaving Shania to run off with her best girlfriend.

It will be the follow-up to her 2002 album “Up!” that was certified diamond (10 million units sold). New album tracks include “Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl,” “We Got Something They Don’t,” “Swinging With My Eyes Closed” and “Hard to Love.”

Before going into the studio with producers Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) and Matthew Koma (Zedd), Shania laid down tracks at home using the Garage Band and Pro Tools apps on her computer.
