Pop Sensation Harry Styles is an artist of many trades. From his days as a One Direction heart throb to his recent solo album and acting debut in the box office hit Dunkirk, Styles has proved his talents and interests can't be pinned down. Recently, the singer was asked who he would most like to collaborate with and his answer may surprise you.

During an interview with Elvis Duran And The Morning Show, Styles was given a list of artists who will also be performing at the upcoming 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival — including 30 Seconds To Mars, former bandmate Niall Horan, Coldplay, DJ Khaled, Miley Cyrus, Lorde, Thomas Rhett, Kings of Leon, and David Guetta — and had to pick his next collaborative partner.
His selection? Styles blew the collective music world's mind by declaring that, “I'm a massive fan of Chris Stapleton. Big fan. So I think I'd have to say him." When prompted further, the singer added, “yeah, I love him and his voice… his, everything." Sounds like Styles has a music crush and a man crush!

But this isn't the first time Styles has showed his admiration for the country genre and its stars. The “Sign Of The Times" singer publicly tweeted his love for country artist Kacey Musgrave's music in 2015 and just recently announced that Musgraves will join him on his 2018 Live On Tour. A collaboration between the two artists wouldn’t be such a crazy concept either, as Styles would be the second former boy band member that Stapleton has collaborated with. Stapleton and Justin Timberlake famously performed together at the 2015 CMA Awards Show. So we know Stapleton may be open to the idea.
With Stapleton set to perform at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival, and Styles broadcasting his interest in country music, could we see a live collaboration there? We can only hope!
