A lot of the best songwriters gravitate towards country music due to its strong lyrics, devotion to storytelling and attention to melody and harmony.
And Shawn Mendes might eventually be one of them.
Shawn and the Zac Brown Band teamed up to perform on Wednesday’s episode of CMT Crossroads and the experience left him inspired.
Even a full country album from him down the road is a real possibility, though the way he sees it it’s not too different form what the already does.
He tells Rolling Stone, "Good music and good story and a good feeling is what makes up good songs, and there’s no genre behind that"
