British singer Jake Bugg is considering making a country album after Dolly Parton inspired him at Britain's Glastonbury festival last month (Jun14). The musician caught the 9 to 5 hitmaker's set at Britain's music event and he now wants to visit Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music, to get inspiration for his third album. He tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "I'm a fan of Dolly's beautiful voice and great songs. She's a woman with great stories, so Dolly is pretty cool... I've recently been coming up with ideas for songs and have come up with country ideas. "Next year I'd like to have some time off to travel around to the southern states, (and) Nashville and Memphis, and hang out, get inspired, see what happens... maybe I'll make a country album which would be pretty sweet."
