The Memphis native shared a photo of himself with Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, who seemed to be having a great time working together. “NBD [no big deal]… Just writing with Little Big Town,” Timberlake wrote on the photo’s caption. “This band is the truth! So good!”
No other details of their collaboration have been released yet, but the photo is just one more piece of evidence that suggests Timberlake is working on a country-oriented album. Rumors swirled last year that the superstar was heading to Nashville with producer Timbaland to work on a new project. Although many have spotted Timberlake hanging around recording studios on Music Row, he’s kept mostly silent about what he’s working on.
Since his memorable performance of “Drink You Away” with Chris Stapleton on the 2015 CMA Awards, many country fans have warmed up to the idea of Timberlake crossing over into the country world. With an act as widely-loved as Little Big Town on his side, it’s likely that whatever he’s cooking up will be more than worth a listen.
