“If you look at this one, there is no female representation on this album. So, part one was me with the guys, and part two will be with the ladies of country music,” he said.
The three-time Grammy winner did not mention specific female artists he is working with for the project, but said, “The women of country, they are fierce. When I am with the guys, we are kegging, beering, trucking, smoking and hanging out. I’m going to have to bring my A-game pretty much when it comes to dealing with the ladies because they are not going to play around with Nelly. They are going to bring it, and I am definitely looking forward to it.”
He said he is taking his time with the project, in order to be respectful of health protocols due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I know we’re still trying to get around the [health] issue, and everybody’s still trying to make sure that we are all respecting one another and it’s safety first. If it weren’t for that, I would be in Nashville right now trying to cram it out.”
Nelly, who recently joined Brown, FGL, Breland and more for CMT Crossroads: Nelly & Friends, also said he is currently looking for a residence in Nashville while he works on the project. “I am real estate hunting in Nashville. I think I’m more of a downtown Nashville kind of guy. I wouldn’t mind taking up a whole floor of one of the buildings somewhere.”
