Dave Mustaine Reveals Nashville Move Was for Daughter’s Country Music Career

Legendary Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine revealed Monday that his family’s recent move to Nashville was inspired by his daughter’s desire to be a country music star. Mustaine told Rolling Stone: “The reason we moved out here was because I’ve made four records out here and all those times I was recording, I did live here. It really was comfortable to be here. The last time we were here, Electra was only two years old. We didn’t know that she had the gift and once she started singing, I heard her sing one time and I was really convinced.” The former Metallica frontman added that he can run Megadeth from anywhere, thanks to previous success, but his daughter, Electra, can really benefit from performing and living in the country capital of the US. Check out the video clips of Electra Mustaine performing below.

Mustaine relocated his family to Nashville last October, after many years living in Fallbrook, California, in the San Diego area. The singer/guitarist’s popular band Megadeth is slated to release their 15th album, entitled Dystopia, on January 16th via the Universal imprint Tradecraft.
