She's a little bit country … and a little bit opera?

Marie Osmond recently recorded the famed aria "Nessun Dorma," from Puccini's "Turandot," at a session in Prague, according to ContactMusic.

No word on where or when the track will be released — whether on an upcoming album or compilation.

Osmond said it was thrilling to rework a classic tune (one that's usually sung by a tenor — most famously by Luciano Pavarotti).

"You keep pushing yourself," Osmond said. "I love learning, I love trying new things and I guess it's genetic — we're all kind of that way in my family."
