Justin Timberlake was on Sirius XFM’s The Highway earlier this week, where he declared that his dreams of being a country superstar are “still alive”. On The 20/20 Experience – Part 2, he’s got a song called ‘Drink You Away’, which is apparently country inspired… but he doesn’t want to stop there!
“I just did an interview earlier today and I said ‘I’m America, that’s what I am – in all sense of the word’. I grew up outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and I listened to country music, R&B music, classic rock… everything.
“I still got my eyes on a ‘Best Country Album’. There’s time for that.”
Well, I’m not so sure about that… and I think it would probably be career suicide, actually. Please don’t ever make a country album, Justin.
