I adore Niall Horan. He has got to be my favorite former One Directoner, but the news coming out about him going country has got to be the most random thing I have heard in a while. According to the Irish Mirror, Niall has been working on his debut album with Shania Twain.

The Irish Mirror reports that Niall said "Country is the heart of the kind of music that I like. When you hear my album you will hear flavours of folk and country and stuff like that."

I totally get why he is doing this. Just look at the other One Directioners are all doing there own thing. Zayn Malik has his own thing going on. Harry Styles is making new music. Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson are both fathers. I can see that Niall just wants to do something different.

I am interested to see how this country sound is going to work out for him.
