In 2002, at a time when many singers were trying to see who could fit the most notes into a one-syllable word, singer-songwriter Norah Jones debuted with a Grammy-winning CD, Come Away With Me, blending contemporary jazz and pop with an understated singing style. She gained many fans, including country legend Dolly Parton, who sang a duet with Norah on her 2005 CD, Feels Like Home.

Recently, Norah sang a duet with Willie Nelson on his latest CD, American Classic. The experience only fueled her desire to sing more country music. She tells the World Entertainment News Network, “I love country music. If I listen to Willie Nelson or Hank Williams I feel at home all of a sudden. I’d love to make a full-on country record.”

What do you think about Norah making a country CD? Which other non-country artists would you like to see “go country”? Let us know in the comments section below!
