Treating the audience to a stirring stage effort, Rihanna joined forces with Jennifer Nettles at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.

Held in Las Vegas on Sunday evening (April 3), the "Rude Boy" songstress and her Sugarland gal pal brought an undeniable energy as they offered up a rendition of a song by the name of "California King Bed".

Talking about bringing Rihanna on board for the ACMs, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS Entertainment Jack Sussman dished, “We had worked with Rihanna [at the Grammys] and listened to some of her new music while we were together in Los Angeles and she played us this one song, and when we heard it our first reaction was, ‘did someone in Nashville write that?’”

Sussman added, "It sounded like one of these great country songs that she put her spin on. Jennifer was looking for a duet partner, we put them together and when you put two great artists like that together great things will happen and you’ll see it Sunday night.”
