Jewel has a lot on her plate these days, with an upcoming children's album, a new reality competition show and, most importantly, a baby! The multi-platinum selling songbird, who's due to give birth this summer, was at the South by Southwest music festival over the weekend to speak on a panel about writing hit songs, something she certainly knows a lot about. AOL Music caught up with Jewel in an Austin, Texas studio just before the panel to catch up on music, motherhood and finding the next 'Platinum Hit.' Watch the exclusive video interview below.
