Davis broke the news to fans with a photo posting on Instagram that shows him in a recording studio with the country music stars. The caption says: "Working with Big and Rich on a country music project #bakersfieldsound." See the post here.
Davis' surprise announcement came a day after Loudwire published an interview where Korn guitarist James 'Munky' Shaffer said that country music is the only genre of music that he doesn't see Korn experimenting with in the future.
Shaffer was asked about the band's musical experimentation and which direction he would like to see the band explore. He said, "I think we just continue to grow as songwriters, so I don't know. We've gone in every direction except for country and I don't think that's going to happen for Korn, but I know there's been some remix stuff.
"I think we'll probably explore some of what we left off on the last record. Maybe a little more conceptual, that's kind of my goal for the next writing sessions, when those begin. Coming up with a theme and sticking with that theme throughout the touring cycle and record cycle." Read the interview here.
