Beyonce tries her hand at country musicNovember 22nd, 2007 - 3:53 pm ICT by admin
London, Nov 22 (ANI): Beyonce Knowles is treating music lovers with something different by foraying into a new album of country and western songs.
And to make sure that her experiment is successful, the Bootylicious singer has enlisted the help of award winning singer/songwriter Amanda Ghost, the mind behind James Blunts smash hit Youre Beautiful, for the project.
The Naughty Girl singer decided to tackle the idea head on after testing out her new sound by singing a surprise country version of her hit Irreplaceable at the American Music Awards in LA last weekend.
The former Destinys Child star performed the reworked song with US country duo Sugarland.
Beyonce wants to try something completely different. Shes a fan of country music and thought that would be an interesting and exciting way to go, The Sun quoted a source, as saying.
She tested the water at the American Music Awards and she is up for it. She contacted Amanda early this week and she is going over to work with her on it, the source added.
Apart from penning Blunts hit single, Ghost also wrote Beyonce and Shakiras recent chart-topper Beautiful Liar.
She also helped American Idol winner Jordin Sparks score a hit in the US charts with the single Tattoo. (ANI)
