Jake Bugg - Jake Bugg to make country album

Jake Bugg is considering making a country music album.

The 'Lightening Bolt' hitmaker has revealed that after seeing Dolly Parton perform at Glastonbury festival in Somerset, South West England last month - where he also played his own set - he's thinking about moving to the United States to work on some new material.

He explained: ''I'm a fan of Dolly's beautiful voice and great songs. She's a woman with great stories, so Dolly is pretty cool.

''I've recently been coming up with new ideas for songs and have come up with country ideas.

''Next year I'd like to have some time off to travel around the southern states, Nashville and Memphis, and hang out, get inspired, see what happens.

''Maybe I'll make a country album, which would be pretty sweet.''

The 20-year-old star - who grew up in Nottingham in the East Midlands of England - has confessed to having a great reaction from audiences in the United States already.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: ''They've all been cool. They just want to hear tunes and are appreciative of music even though they're spoilt for it.''

Meanwhile, Jake - who played at T in the Park festival in Scotland this weekend - is looking forward to performing more gigs this summer.

He added: ''I'm high up on the bill at festivals this year so I've added one or two things, stepped it up a level.

''At least I've got more songs to sing along with.''
