Following the most-talked about performance during last week's CMA Awards, it's been announced that JT is making the move to the country music format.

'Drink You Away,' the song Justin performed with his pal, Chris Stapleton on the awards show will be the first single the Memphis,TN native will release to country radio.

If you're a JT fan (and really, who isn't?), you know 'Drink You Away' is on his 2013 two-part collection titled, 'The 20/20 Experience.'  

There is a difference however, between the original version and the new country version of the song. According to Rolling Stone, the original is 5:30 minutes long. Timberlake and record label, RCA Nashville have edited the song down to just over 4:00.
