Cher Reconsiders Country Album
It seems Cher is not going country after all. Reports spread like wildfire after an interview with country music producer Mark Bright surfaced, reporting that the music icon was in the process of recording a country-pop album.
“Cher knows that her listeners also listen to country music,” Mark told Silk & Denim Music back in January, regarding Cher’s decision to dabble with her inner cowgirl. “So she felt it was a natural thing to develop a country music relationship.”
The pop culture icon was indeed in the beginning stages of a country project, but has since shifted her artistic focus on the release of a “a dance-oriented album,” her spokesperson tells HITFIX.
What sparked the 64-year old to change her mind? Maybe it was the success of her current single, ‘You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me,’ which recently topped Billboard’s Dance Club chart. Her latest No. 1 gave the living legend the honor of having a Billboard chart-topper for the last six decades.
Cher’s performance also earned the 2011 Golden Globe for Best Original Song, giving veteran Diane Warren her first award as a songwriter. The tune appeared on the ‘Burlesque‘ soundtrack.
No other details have been released, but no matter the genre, Cher fans can expect new music sometime later this year.
