Christina Aguilera's arc on Nashville kicks off Wednesday, but don't expect her to be making the jump to country music anytime soon.
"I think my roots will stay where they are," she tells PEOPLE, "but that doesn't mean there won't be more collaborations down the line."
In the same vein, this won't be the last time we see Aguilera, 34, on the small screen. "My experiences in acting have been really great, so if the role is right I am always open to it," she says, adding that her "true love will always stay music."

You might expect that Christina Aguilera would pick one of the Voice contestants from her team as this season's singer to beat. But when asked, Aguilera first singled out Sawyer Fredericks, who's on Pharrell Williams' team, as one of the top talents.
"I've been very open about the fact that I've been a huge fan of Sawyer since day one. He's just definitely a frontrunner outside of my team," Aguilera said in a press conference for The Voice this week. "But other than my team, because I've got to route for them first, I think Sawyer is definitely a stand out."
Aguilera, 34, immediately afterward sang the praises of some of her own team members, whom she described with the words "winners," "focused," and "soulful."

After the performance, the other judges compliment both members of Team Blake for their soulful voices, and when Christina Aguilera refuses to pick a winner, Pharrell Williams jump on the bandwagon.

Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears have known each other since they were both Mouseketeers on The Mickey Mouse Club back in the early '90s, so it makes sense that Aguilera would have internalized her peer's vocal stylings.
But we weren't prepared for this.
