Miguel has country crossover dreams

12.09.13 4 years ago

Things are going pretty well for Miguel in the R&B and pop worlds, but that doesn”t mean he wants to stop there. It turns out that the singer has a goal that extends beyond both of those genres.

When asked what it was like to play with country superstar  Keith Urban during the Grammy Nominations Live! Concert Friday night, Miguel revealed that his interest in country is much more than fleeting.

“One of my goals, it still is, is to write  a song that crosses over from whatever genre you want to put my music in, into country music,” Miguel said. “I feel like country music is that genre for the greatest written songs so if I”ve ever written a song that kind of even made it country radio, it would be a huge testament to my abilities.”

Miguel, who received two Grammy nominations Friday night, went on to talk about how healthy the country genre is: “The artists thrive and the music thrives because of the community and because of the honesty,” he said. “They write songs about cars and they sound incredible. There”s not too many people who can do that, you know what I”m saying?”

Yes, we do, Miguel. Yes, we do.
