Lady Gaga Reveals Meaning Behind 'Joanne' Country Influence

FUSE TV - Lady Gaga Reveals Meaning Behind 'Joanne' Country Influence

Lady Gaga's albums all embody different musical voices from the pop star, and her upcoming Joanne LP seems to be venturing into the country world. She spoke to Rolling Stone about the genre's influence, revealing her love for artists like Garth Brooks stems from childhood.

"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," she told the magazine. "I thought it was cool."

The singer professes her love for Brooks, Neil Young and Elvis Presley before continuing: "I have a general and deep respect for all country musicians, but I myself am not a country musician. I'm just a musician period. I love all different kinds of music and this is just what I wrote." Gaga previously covered Young's "Old Man" during an intimate DNC event.
