Since his performance at the CMAs with Chris Stapleton, everyone has been talking about Justin Timberlake's possible transition to the country music genre.

Luckily for us, Timberlake's longtime producer, Timbaland, sat down with TMZ to talk about their future projects. 

When asked if JT is going country, his response is, "Guess what? We are country!"

"He's from Tennessee, I'm from Virginia," he continues. "It's only right that we try to tap into what we was raised in. We was raised in the country. That's who we are."

 He explains that there is a new generation of country, and because of the CMA performance, the song "Drink You Away" is now a country-crossover hit.

Timbaland also says heading to Nashville isn't far-fetched. He claims he already has living arrangements there and he's always wanted to, "tap into country."

The two started collaborating in 2002 on Timberlake's first solo album Justified, and have been in the studio together countless times thereafter. 

Whether or not the world is ready for a country album from Justin Timberlake , Timbaland is. When asked if they are working on a country album, he not-so coyly responds, "Why not?"

See the interview below.

 And take a look at Timberlake's "Drink You Away" performance from the CMAs below. 

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.
