Is Ke$ha Going Country?

Pop star Ke$ha discusses the option of putting out a country album.

Pop sensation Ke$ha (much to the dismay of country fans everywhere) has hinted that she may see a Jessica-Simpson-like crossover in her future. In a recent interview with Paper Mag, the starlett cites that that her plans in life may include some country music collabs, if not a whole album and then some.

I’m really inspired by country music — my mom wrote country music — and I love Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash,” Ke$ha told Paper Mag. “I think at some point there might be some country collaborations or records in the future. But I’m also really digging being called, like half jokingly, a white girl rapper. I think it’s really funny and I’m going to ride that train for a little bit.

Keep ridin that train hon, cause I don’t think there’s room at this station for any of that funny business!

  1. I couldn’t help but notice that you’re not quite fond of Kesha. Since this is a site about country music and considering her current musical style, I can totally understand that. You probably just don’t know any of her music besides the songs on her album, do you?
    Because, as a matter of fact, she would do anything but bad as a country singer in my opinion. Listen to some of her older records before you make a hasty judgement. As an example, search youtube for “Kesha I’m the one” and “Kesha Goodbye”. “Heart’s on fire” is very obviously of a different genre, but check out the sung chorus.
    That’s what Kesha in country music could sound like. And I must say, I love the idea of hearing more of it in the future.
