Chris Brown Turning to Country Music?

Chris Brown may be looking to try his hand at making country music.

Brown, the 23-year-old singer-songwriter, recently opened up about his desire to expand his musical sound beyond the R&B records that he is well known for.

"Music is for everyone. When you put genres on music, you segregate it," Brown recently told Charlotte, N.C. radio station Power 98. "I want to always be able to do any kind of music I want. When I get older I might want to do a country album."

Brown spoke about his immediate plans to expand beyond his typical R&B records as soon as next year.

"Next year, I might want to do all hip-hop album or alternative album," Brown told the North Carolina radio station. "Just making sure that anything that goes down, showing my audience or showing people that have a creative mind that you can do anything you want, it's just about believing and loving what you're doing in a positive way."

It seems the singer has been thinking of ways to provide his fans with new sounds, and even spoke about the idea of creating an entire duet album with his girlfriend Rihanna.

"[That] might be crazy," Brown told MTV News recently. "You gotta wait though. X and then you get the Rihanna and Chris Brown album!"

Brown is gearing up to release his sixth studio album "X" and revealed that the pair would release a single together called "Put It Up."

"So we did 'Nobody's Business' for her album, and then I wrote a song, it's called 'Put It Up.' It's more of an R&B record," Brown told MTV. "I wanted to do an R&B record with Rihanna because I didn't want it to be the same four-on-the-floor, pop. At the end of the day, that's what they expect from us, so I wanted to do more of a record that nobody really heard her sing on as far as that genre."
