Rihanna To Duet With Jennifer Nettles At ACM Awards
A very special guest will be joining Sugarland on stage at next month's Academy of Country Music Awards first-ever Fan Jam.
Rihanna will duet with the country duo's Jennifer Nettles on a "country-tonged version" of "California King Bed." The song is from the R&B/pop sensation's latest album, Loud.
This isn't the first time Sugarland has crossed genre lines. They performed with Beyonce at the 2007 American Music Awards on her hit, "Irreplaceable." At the 2009 CMT Awards, they collaborated with surprise guests the B-52s on their hit "Love Shack."
Sugarland's 'Live On The Inside' album features several rock covers, including Pearl Jam's "Better Man" and R.E.M.'s "The One I Love." Just last week, the twosome were joined by Little Big Town on an awesome cover of Madonna's "Like A Prayer."
Jennifer and the other half of Sugarland, Kristian Bush, are set to perform on the ACM Awards at the first-ever ACM Fan Jam, which takes place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas at the same time as the main show.
Other performers include Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Ronnie Dunn, Sara Evans, Dierks Bentley, Alabama and the Zac Brown Band playing with James Taylor.
The 46th Annual ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 3 at 8:00 PM ET.
