Cher to record country album

When Cher made a surprise appearance at the 2010 Country Music Awards, the audience was a bit confused. “My being present here tonight is probably not as strange as it may seem,” Cher said. “I have a few country creds.”

It’s making more sense now – music producer Mark Bright has confirmed Cher will be recording a country album in the near future. Bright is known for his work with stars Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Reba McEntire.

“Cher knows that her listeners also listen to country music, so she felt it was a natural thing to develop a country music relationship,” Bright told Silk and Denim Music.

It’s been 10 years since Cher last released a solo album - 2001’s “Living Proof” debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart but didn’t see the success of its predecessor “Believe.” Since then, Cher’s been appearing in Las Vegas and on the big screen. Her movie “Burlesque” made approximately $39 million at the domestic box office.

There is no word on the release date for Cher’s country debut yet. Are you eagerly awaiting its arrival?

  6. Really? Seriously?

    Great! We can play her country album non-stop for days when we go over to Libya to drive Qadafi out of his compound. Shouldn't take too long.

    Did she run out of ideas for the current genre she's in? Now she has to resort changing and going country-which is not hard at all-anyone can sing country. And hoping she gets into a deadly skiing is girlfriend's boyfriend died in a skiing accident...

    Oh my. I will buy it because I love Cher's voice. But the idea does make me feel a little nervous for her. "Just Like Jesse James" could've been a crossover to country radio. If she stays in that area, this album might be great. I hope she doesn't go too country. I'm not sure it would be received well. Viva la Cher, anyway. I'm a fan! At least she has guts.

    Why not put out a country album? She's done so much in her career- I think it would be great to listen to her take on another genre. As one poster pointed out, she may have done something like this with the Allman Bros (I'm too young to have heard it, first time I'm hearing of this). Good for her for changing things up so frequently!

    If I recall correctly Cher was born with a tallywhacker that was lopped off at the age of 11...I believe.

    She married me and I ran off on a 9 day heroine spree...LOL. We did Allman and woman and thanks to her it was a flop.

      good to see you're still around, I bet being married to Cher was a real eye opening experience?

    she may as well – everyone else is doing it – because they can ... in fact anyone with a voice can sing that country crap

    btw ... didnt she already do something similar back in her Allman Bros days ?
