Can I attach a USB drive to Time Capsule to access music folders on a PC and Mac?

I know similar questions have been asked before but I wanted to describe my specific scenario before I purchase a TC.

I have a Mac and a PC on my home network, and the issue I keep running into is that it's hard to keep music up to date on both computers. If I put new music on one computer, I then have to hook up an external USB drive and transfer that music to the other one.

So my question is this: if I buy a Time Capsule, can I use the Time Capsule to wirelessly back up my Mac AND attach an external USB drive to the TC to access my music?

The idea would be to have the music only available on that external USB drive and "point" iTunes to that drive on both the Mac and PC. That way, both computers are accessing the same files and I don't have to update the folders between two different computers.
