Lady Gaga hasn’t been shy about her love of country music, so we just might hear more of it on her upcoming Joanne album .
“A-Yo” definitely borrows from the new Nashville sound thanks to one of country music’s hottest songwriters.
Hillary Lindsey, who responsible for songs like “Girl Crush” and “Jesus Take the Wheel”, helped Gaga write “A-Yo” according to Taste Of Country.
Gaga recently told Rolling Stone Country that she loves country music, especially Johnny Cash and Garth Brooks.
“When I was little, my father used to play ‘I’ve Got Friends in Low Places’ really loud in the basement, and I’d catch him down there dancing by himself, screaming real loud,” Gaga says. “I thought it was cool.”
In 2014 Gaga even attended a Brooks concert and posed for a photo with him and his wife Trisha Yearwood.
Gaga isn’t the first star to drop an unexpected country sound into her music.
In April, Beyonce also dropped a country-inspired track call “Daddy’s Lessons” on her Lemonade album.
