Is Justin Bieber about to go country? It's unlikely, although his cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ may leave some thinking he's saddling up to head to Nashville.

Others, however, will watch and hope that if he comes to Music City, it’s only for the barbecue. The Biebs' version of the classic was shared to Instagram this week. The star -- now 20 -- sings only a portion of the chorus at the urging of his two friends, including hip-hop star Khalil.

It's not the first time the Canadian pop singer has shown interest in country music. In 2011, he won a CMT Music Award for his ‘That Should Be Me’ collaboration with Rascal Flatts. That night, the Biebs admitted both he and his mother are country fans.

Then, in early 2014, Bieber posted a Vine video of him singing Lonestar’s ‘Amazed’ while wearing something he meant to be a cowboy hat. It was as country as his twang.
