Could Ariana Grande cross over to country radio? Maybe!
The 23-year-old pop star appeared to have Nashville on the brain at the iHeartRadio Fest in Las Vegas over the weekend, opening up to Elvis Duran of New York's Z100 Morning Show about her career ambitions.
"My grandpa, he always wanted me to do something in the country world. I don't know if that would ever happen," she said, "[but] if that opportunity comes along, I'd have to say, 'Hell yeah!'"
"My grandpa was like, 'You need to do a country song,'" she continued. "So, [I] gotta make that happen someday."
Grande said she grew up listening to the Dixie Chicks with her dad, "so that's the most country I've been exposed to."
For now, Grande is gearing up for her Dangerous Woman tour and a supporting role in NBC's Hairspray Live! in December.
"I love, love, love, love pop music and I love what I do, and I'm very grateful to be able to do it, but my soul misses theater so much," the former Broadway star told ET. "I'm so excited about Hairspray, I have no words. Like, I love it so much. I love being able to be a part of something that, A.) is a musical and B.) also makes people feel good."
In a separate interview with ET last week, Grande had praised the musical's "strong message."
"With everything that's going on in the world -- the intolerance, the ignorance, the hate and ridiculousness -- it's just so crazy how this takes place in the '60s and, like, we're still working on all that. It's playful, but also very necessary," she said.
The "Side to Side" singer also spilled on her own personal life, revealing that her ideal date night involves Pokemon. See what she said in the player below!
