Is Marilyn Manson Hinting at an Upcoming Country Project?

There has been a slew of rock artists trying their hand at country in the past year and shock-rocker Marilyn Manson might just be the newest addition to that list.

Following in the footsteps of Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, Manson hinted he’s thinking about exploring a brand new genre. During a recent “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit, the controversial artist revealed he’s planning to work on an acoustic project with Korn frontman Jonathan Davis.

“That’s some of the plans of the style of music that I’m working on right now,” Manson explained. “I don’t know what it’ll turn into. Some of it will be with Jonathan Davis, I think, because he has plans of doing something similar — something that might even cross over the boundaries of being more Southern-sounding.”

Earlier this year, Davis shared a photo from a recording studio where he was working on a “country music project” with country music duo Big and Rich. Although specifics of this project are mostly unclear, it’ll likely be a collaboration that will get people talking within the country music industry (not to mention, the music industry as a whole).
