Rihanna and Jennifer Nettles to Perform Live at 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards April 3

March 28, 2011 by  

The Academy of Country Music and dick clark productions announced today that Rihanna will perform with Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland a special performance of Rihanna’s latest single “California King Bed” at the first-ever ACM Fan Jam.

The performance will be broadcast live from the ACM Fan Jam during the 46th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, which is being broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 3 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. ACM Fan Jam is the fans-only live concert taking place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center during and after the ACM Awards.

With the global release of Loud in November 2010, Rihanna continues to dominate popular music. Her multiple grammys and multi-platinum sales have earned her the coveted title of international superstar. Recently, Rihanna wrapped up filming Universal’s Battleship directed by Peter Berg. She will make her feature film debut alongside Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard. The film is set to be released May 2012.

As previously announced, country superduo Sugarland will headline the inaugural ACM Fan Jam which gives country music fans the ultimate opportunity to be part of the LIVE telecast. Additional performers include Eric Church, The Band Perry, Randy Houser, Little Big Town, Steel Magnolia, Laura Bell Bundy, Sarah Darling, Bradley Gaskin and Casey James.

Throughout the three-hour live Awards show from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, performances by top-tier music acts will take place from the Mandalay Bay Events Center, some of which will be remotely broadcast into the live telecast. Tickets for the ACM Fan Jam are on sale NOW, priced at $35 and $55.

The ACM Fan Jam will include multiple LIVE remotes into the 46th Annual ACM Awards telecast and will also include a profusion of entertainment, including performances by country music acts, prizes and special giveaways only for attendees, such as autographed guitars, trip packages to music events and merchandise. Fans at the ACM Awards wear dressy attire, but at the Fan Jam, concert attire is key because the night continues with more live performances and appearances after the Awards’ taping ends.
