"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."
Aguilera is set to portray Jade St. John, a successful pop singer whose dream is to sing country music. As the "Beautiful" singer tells it, Jade "is caught between her love and her passion and what the record label wants of her as an artist."
