I'm a little bit country...I'm a little bit...S&M.

Who said you can't have it all? Singer Rihanna will share the stage with Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles for a performance during the 46th annual Academy of Country Music Awards next month.

While it may be difficult to imagine the song "S&M" being flipped for the CMA audience, Nettles will join RiRi to perform a duet of "California King Bed," a guitar-driven ballad off Loud that should translate easily for country music listeners.

The performance will advance Rihanna's summer tour with special guest Cee Lo Green beginning this June in Baltimore.
