Nelly teamed up with several country artists -- including Jimmie Allen, Kane Brown, Darius Rucker and Florida Georgia Line -- as part of his country-inspired Heartland EP, which released Aug. 27 via RECORDS/Columbia. But the entertainer, known for hits including "Country Grammar," "Hot in Herre," "Over and Over" with Tim McGraw and his collaborations with Florida Georgia Line (current hit "Lil Bit" and a remix of the duo's 2012 hit "Cruise") says there is more country-inspired music to come.
Nelly recently told Country Now that he is working on a follow-up to the Heartland project, and hopes it will be released early next year.
"This album here, we're looking at the first part of a two-part series," Nelly said. Notably, the Heartland EP features an all-male lineup of artists, and Nelly said that is by design.
