Justin Timberlake says he's still got time to record a country album

Justin Timberlake has revealed he still has his eye on launching a country music career.

The Take Back The Night singer said he would be interested in returning to his roots to record a full country album, following the country-inspired track, Drink You Away from his new album, The 20/20 Experience - 2 Of 2.

The 32-year-old told US radio station SiriusXM of his dreams: "They're still alive."

Justin explained: "I just did an interview earlier today and I said, 'I'm America, that's what I am - in all senses of the word'. I grew up outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and I listened to country music, R&B music, classic rock... everything."

He added: "I still got my eyes on a Best Country Album. There's time for that."

Justin, who continues on his 20/20 Experience tour around the US, will perform a series of UK shows in March and April 2014.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
