- Associated Press - Friday, January 14, 2011

BOSTON (AP) - Ayla Brown is going country.

The former "American Idol" contestant is moving to Nashville, Tenn., to test her talents as a country singer.

Her father, Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, told The Associated Press this week that music producers in Nashville "want to work with her."

Ayla Brown's website says she's spending the coming week writing and recording at Starstruck Studios. It says she's moving there in early February.

The senator says he supports all his daughters' activities "as long as they're safe and healthy and using their heads."

Ayla Brown was a basketball star at Boston College. She now is a special correspondent for "The Early Show" on CBS.

She recently returned from entertaining U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
