It looks like this pop star has found a new home in a seemingly unexpected genre. 

After completely taking the 49th Annual CMA Awards my storm with Chris Stapleton, Justin Timberlake has decided to make a switch. He will be releasing a single to country radio, and fans of both pop and country are buzzing.

Timberlake is releasing the Memphis-blues inspired, "Drink You Away" as a single from his 2013 album, The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2. You might remember it from the very same Stapleton performance that blew the roof off of the CMA awards! Timberlake and Stapleton performed the song after George Jones' "Tennessee Whiskey"

Even though his new single might lean more pop-country rather than classic, it is still a big move for Timberlake. Plus, his soulful Tennessee roots and stone-cold talent stand out above many new male country artists today. We wouldn't be surprised if Timberlake has found his new home in country. 

Take a listen to "Drink You Away" from the 49th CMA performance (if you missed it, you MUST watch). The lyrics are as country as they come, and catchy to! 

LYRICS BELOW 

Bitter sweet thing.
Could this be a dream
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake?
Feel it in my brain.
A tall shot of pain.
Pour a little OUT now for the love that we've made.

I feel it in the morning.
You’re still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay.
The bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth.
I dive in but I can’t.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break, ooh?
Tell me, baby, oh, yeah, now don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Got a pounding on my brain.
So I drowned it away.
When the sun comes up tomorrow you can find me doing the same.
'Cause I just can’t forget
The way we turned out this bad/bed.
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead.

And then I feel it in the morning.
You’re still here in the morning.
I see you but you're gone.
Telephone a doctor: I’m not okay.
Bottom of the bottle
To fill this empty heart up.
A thousand proof
Don’t change the truth.
I dive in but I can’t.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away (no, I can't).
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

Tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break?
Oh, tell me, baby, one time, come on, don't they make a medicine for heart break?

Break it down

I can’t drink you. No, I can’t drink you away, away.
I can’t drink you. I can’t drink you away, away.
I can’t drink you. I can’t drink you away, away.
Oh, I can’t drink you. No, I can’t drink you away, away.

I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
Say

So tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break (don't they, don't they, tell me, baby)?
Oh, tell me baby, one time, don't they make a medicine for heart break, yeah?

Tell me, baby, can't they make a medicine for my heart break, heart break?
Tell me, baby, yeah, can't they make a medicine for my heart break?

'Cause I can't drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I'm living in.
