After quite literally lighting up the stage in an LED dress at the 2014 CMA Awards with her in her performance of her hit “Bang Bang” alongside country quartet Little Big Town, pop superstar Ariana Grande is considering crossing over into country music.
Grande’s possible transition into the genre, who is known for her insane vocals reminiscent of pop music legend Mariah Carey, may seem out of left field but the singer has a bit of Nashville-studded history in her family.
“My grandpa, he always wanted me to do something in the country world. I don’t know if that would ever happen,” Grande shared in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t know if that would ever happen, [but] if that opportunity comes along, I’d have to say, ‘Hell yeah!’ [I] gotta make that happen someday.”
While the singer admits her familiarity with country music practically begins and ends with the Dixie Chicks, she is willing to “do more country music homework” were the opportunity arise.
Grande is currently busy preparing for her role as Penny in NBC’s revival of the Broadway musical, Hairspray, airing December 7. Between her theatre prep and her Dangerous Woman Tour kicking off early 2017, fulfilling her grandfather’s dream may still be on the back-burner for now.
