Rihanna, may be one of the hottest R&B acts on the planet (S&M is currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart), but she seems pretty excited to have the chance to be out of her normal element. Rihanna tweeted:
Me and my boo Jennifer Nettles! This is SO much fun.
The question may be will a wider audience tune in to the ACM awards just to see what Jennifer Nettle and Rihanna can pull off in a duet? The 2011 Academy of Country Music Awards airs tonight at 8 PM ET and ABC.
