Justin Timberlake could soon be singing the blues after holding collaboration talks with country icon Hank Williams, Jr.
The Cry Me A River hitmaker headed backstage at Williams' concert in Southaven, Mississippi last week (27Apr12) and found plenty to discuss with his fellow southerner - including a potential duet.
Williams tells People.com, "What a great guy. Justin is a friend of... Kid Rock. He sure is a good country boy.
"We talked about girls, guitars, turkey hunting, going on cruises and how much we hate them, even though Bobby (Kid Rock) is on one right now and loving it!
"Hell, Justin and I (were) even talking about recording a blues song sometime."
Timberlake first tried to find fame singing country music - he made his TV debut aged 11 covering Alan Jackson on the talent contest Star Search while wearing a cowboy hat and boots.
