Geri Horner has completed her transformation into a countryside goddess and signed up to Dolly Parton’s music management company.

The former Spice Girl has embraced all things ‘country’ of late – just check out her Instagram page if you don’t believe us – and has been focused on relaunching her solo career with the backing of Dolly’s management CTK.

She’s nabbed a new deal with the company based in Nashville, Tennessee, after her first stab at a country record unfortunately leaked ahead of its release last year.

We have to admit that it’s not a move we saw coming from Geri, who released pop heavy tracks ‘Look at Me’ and ‘Lift Me Up’ when she quit the world-famous girl group.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: “Geri was gutted when her first country album leaked last year.

“But some of the tracks were eight years old and she now sees the mishap as a form of cleansing.
“Geri is really excited about her new music. It will have a country theme but there’s going to be a pop influence.”

Hmmm, the jury is out on this one.

Geri, 44, was inspired to get back into the studio after riding a horse with her husband Christian Horner – with whom she has one-month-old son Montague – and she is hoping to use the song she sang on horseback for her record.

The ‘It’s Raining Men’ hitmaker – who also has 10-year-old daughter Bluebell with her ex Sacha Gervasi – shared: “I’m back in the studio. Oh my God, I’m so excited. The strangest place that I’ve done recording is on horseback in Austin, Texas. Christian was ahead of me and I was singing to the horse. If I’ve got a melody I want to keep it.”

And she’s enlisted the help of some well known songwriters to boost her career comeback including Amy Wadge, who co-wrote Ed Sheeran’s hit single ‘Thinking Out Loud’, and Eliot Kennedy – who penned the Spice Girls song ‘Say You’ll Be There’.
