Inside Edge: Justin Timberlake 'N Sync' with Nashville; Miranda has Pink Friday; Garth reschedules 'Roots'
Justin Timberlake is hinting that he wants to become a country artist. During a recent trip to Nashville, the former N' Sync singer revealed he hopes to someday move to Music City and to record a country album. “I spend way more time in Nashville than people realize,” Justin tells the Tennessean newspaper. “I think there could be a place for me here in the future for sure. Absolutely I will work in Nashville. That’s probably the next move for me. The next move for me is to sink some teeth in here.” Justin, whose former boy band recorded a duet with country supergroup Alabama, says he would love to one day win a CMA award for Best Country Album.

We'll be doing so many rehearsals hopefully it'll just feel like another day. I'm sure they'll have something in case somebody freezes. I freeze!" Carrie plays Maria von Trapp on the live broadcast, Dec. 5 at 8:00 PM ET on NBC.
