‘N Sync Expands Horizons With Alabama, Gloria Estefan

Everyone’s favorite teen pop tarts, ’N Sync, are broadening their horizons, recording tracks with country heavyweights Alabama and Latin pop songstress Gloria Estefan.

The boy band has a country radio hit on its hands after teaming up with Alabama. The 18-year veterans of the Nashville scene recorded a version of ’N Sync’s “God Must Have Spent (A Little More Time On You)” with the boys themselves on backing vocals.

“I actually wish we could get a track for it and just do it at our shows because I’m getting bored with doing our version… I’m just kidding,” the group’s Justin joked with MTV News.

“Actually, one of the guys in our group, Lance, when we first recorded the song, he’s a big country fan, he said this song would be great,” Chris said.

“Yeah, this song would be a great country song,” Justin added. “That’s
what he said and when we recorded it and the irony of them calling us. It’s funny.” [RealVideo]

The Alabama/’N Sync union can be found on Alabama’s album “20th Century,” due out June 15th.

Meanwhile, ’N Sync has also recorded a ballad with Gloria Estefan called “Music Of My Heart” for the soundtrack to the movie “Face The Music.” The film, due out this fall, stars Meryl Streep, Aidan Quinn and Estefan in her first film role.
