Famously known for her lead vocals in the well renowned country band Sugarland, Jennifer Nettles called Ryan this morning to talk about “American Idol” and her friendship with pop sensation, Rihanna!

Last night, Nettles along with the rest of Sugarland, performed live in a jaw dropping performance on American Idol. Together they captivated the audience performing their latest hit, “Stuck Like Glue.”

Fortunately, Nettles’ television performances won’t stop there! As Ryan exclusively revealed earlier this week, Nettles will perform along side Rihanna at the ACMs.

Together they will be performing, “California King Bed” of “which is a new song. It’s the first time, obviously, Lady Ri and I have ever sung together and the first time this song will be sung live, so we are thrilled!”

When asked about how this collaboration between the two country and pop superstars came about, Nettles explains, “We are just big fans of each other, and so we wanted to do something that was fun and different and fresh. I reached out to her and said ‘Hey, anything you wanna do’ and she said ‘I have this song that specifically I want to do with you.'”

Lucky for us, Nettles revealed what outfit she will be wearing standing next to the edgy Rihanna on stage at the ACMs. Nettles jokingly says, “I plan on having a diamond encrusted crotch.” One thing is for sure, this should be interesting!

The ACMs will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, on Sunday, April 3 at 8/7c on CBS.
