Rihanna to Perform with Sugarland at Academy of Country Music Awards

Rihanna is going a little bit country. The pop siren will join country duo Sugarland for a special performance at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Ryan Seacrest reports that RiRi and Sugarland frontwoman Jennifer Nettles will duet on a country-tinged version of “California King Bed,” a ballad from the Barbados singer’s latest album Loud.

Fellow songbirds Beyoncé and Keri Hilson have both previously performed with Sugarland at the American Music Awards and “VH1 Divas Salute the Troops.”

The ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on April 3 at 8 p.m. on CBS. Other performers include Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Martina McBride, Reba, Carrie Underwood, and more.

I was very surprised to read it wouldn't be with Reba... This is like her calling card these days.
jessieka 24th-Mar-2011 09:18 pm (UTC)
I'm sure it'll be her next single.

If Beyonce hadn't done it, she wouldn't be doing it either. I'm sure of that.

Still like her music though.
jennyholly2 24th-Mar-2011 07:31 pm (UTC)

I wonder what Rhi will do when she can't move her hips to support her career. :-X

It's the country music awards...if she wants to be on it, she should guest on a country song. What a slight to the musicians in that world.
funkaliciousss 25th-Mar-2011 03:02 pm (UTC)
ia tbh. i love Rihanna but her on a country music award show is just random as hell.
pistol_eyes 25th-Mar-2011 12:36 am (UTC)
Very random.
romann 25th-Mar-2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Keri Hilson? A "songbird?"


But yeah, this is pretty random.
