Ariana Grande Wants to Go Country? 'Hell Yeah'
While preparing for her upcoming Dangerous Woman Tour and her role in NBC's Hairspray Live!, coming in December, is Ariana Grande also plotting a crossover -- to country?
In Las Vegas for the iHeartRadio Festival over the weekend, Grande was asked about her next career move. "My grandpa, he always wanted me to do something in the country world. I don't know if that would ever happen. If that opportunity, when it comes along, I'd have to say, 'Hell yeah!'" she revealed to Elvis Duran for Entertainment Tonight.
The 23-year-old pop star admitted she doesn't have extensive knowledge of the genre, outside of what she heard in the family car while she was growing up.
"My dad was a really big Dixie Chicks fan," she shared, "so that's the most country I've been exposed to."
However, Grande said she intends to learn more: "I definitely need to do more country music homework."
