Jonathan Davis from Korn is working on some country tunes

Going country seems to be the thing to do for rockers. Staind frontman Aaron Lewis went the country route with a solo project a few years back, and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler recently announced he’s releasing a country album soon. Now, Korn frontman Jonathan Davis is the latest to put on some cowboy boots.

Davis announced via Instagram that he’s working with “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” country hit-makers Big & Rich. This is pretty surprising, since Davis, of course, is known for his nu-metal in Korn and even some electronica in Korn’s latest tracks.

“Working with Big and Rich on a country music project #Bakersfieldsound,” Davis wrote on the Instagram post. The photo with the caption shows Big & Rich in the recording studio.

Those who are worried Davis is abandoning rock and electronica might feel comforted by the fact Davis also recently unleashed a snippet of a new electronic-tinged solo tune called “Can You Hear Me” via YouTube.

In Korn news, the band has some overseas dates schedule this summer, as well as a Canadian date Aug. 7 at the Heavy Montreal music festival in Montreal.
