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."
