Timberlake's country music dreams

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.
