Justin Timberlake was recently joined onstage by country singer Garth Brooks.
The pop singer was playing the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville last week (December 19) when he performed a cover of Brooks’ 1990 song ‘I’ve Got Friends in Low Places’. During the rendition he was joined by Brooks himself to perform the rest of the track. Click above to watch footage of the duet.
Last year Timberlake said that he wanted to embark on a career in country music. Following the release of ‘The 20:20 Experience’ in March 2013, he said he was interested in pursuing a different sort of musical career in the future.
Asked if he still had dreams of making country music in the future, Timberlake replied: “They’re still alive. I just did an interview earlier today and I said, ‘I’m America, that’s what I am – in all sense of the word. I grew up outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and I listened to country music, R&B music, classic rock… everything.”
He also referenced the Grammy Awards, stating: “I still got my eyes on a Best Country Album. There’s time for that.”
