The rocker's daughter Electra is an aspiring singer, and he hopes relocating to the city at the heart of the country music scene will boost her chances of success.

"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..." he tells Rollingstoneindia.com. "(Singing is) her strong point. For her, this is music city. It's all about country. It's where she's flourishing...

"I could do my job from anywhere - MEGADETH is that successful. I can do stuff on the net from a desert island if I wanted to. But I think for her, to be here right now and work with other songwriters builds her name (sic). She just goes in and meets people and doesn't tell them who her dad is."
