Nelly is putting the country in country grammar…


Rapper Nelly isn’t exactly an unfamiliar face on the country scene thanks to Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line. But, why in sam hell he is going to release a full on country album has us scratching our heads?

In an interview with Billboard, Nelly’s manager, J. Erving revealed that Nelly and label Universal have decided to split and as a independent artist  will be working on his Country EP titled Heartland.

“He’s a free agent on the label side now, and is working on a country-based HeartlandEP, which should be really interesting,” Erving said. “He may be one of the first hip-hop artists to jump into that space in an authentic way with Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw, so we think he has an opportunity to grow that base even more.”

Is it just me or is country music becoming the place people that can’t really succeed anywhere else anymore go?  Oops did I say that? Is it just me or or is it getting hot in here? (Couldn’t resist)

Now that being said…I completely encourage people to do what makes them happy so if Nelly is truly happy doing country music then bring it on.
