Prepare yourself for a possible Country album from rapper NELLY, famous for the song "Country Grammar," which wasn't actually a Country record. Free from a record deal with UNIVERSAL, NELLY is an independent artist now with his sights apparently set on the Country audience. He’s said to be working on an EP titled “Heartland” that will be targeted Country.
It won’t be NELLY’s first dalliance in this genre; in 2004, he recruited TIM MCGRAW to sing on “Over And Over,” a big pop hit. More recently, NELLY was featured on a remix of the FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE smash, “Cruise,” which went on to win Single of the Year honors at the 2013 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS.
