Collaboratons galore! Sugarland and LBT, Martina and Kid, Dolly and Queen Latifah! Plus, Tonight's Tweets

Sugarland and Little Big Town are once again performing together during their concerts. After "Life in a Northern Town" became a runaway hit- it seems like a no-brainer. Word has it that they are teaming up in concert on Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis." Looking forward to seeing if they do that Sept. 24th at Eaglefest!

Speaking of collaborations...Martina McBride collaborated with Kid Rock and rapper T.I. on the song "Care" from Rock's upcoming album. The combination may sound unusual, but Martina is flattered to be a part of it. She tells, "I think Kid Rock is kind of a groundbreaker in that way. He kind of transcends all boundaries and loves all kinds of music and certainly loves country music, so we'll see what happens with that."

And more team ups--Dolly Parton is excited to co-star with Queen Latifah in the movie Joyful Noise. The queen of country music says, "I really like her and have often thought we would be fun together." Dolly is writing a few songs for the movie, about a struggling small town's gospel choir. The movie is scheduled to premiere next year.

Tonight's Tweets:

@Miranda_Lambert: Well I will say this: I love Merle Haggard.

@BradPaisley: Those crazy nutty CMAs have asked Carrie and I to host again. Here we go. The comedic stylings of Carebrad. Or Paisleywood. Or Underpaisley.

@joshturnermusic: Just a reminder! Don't miss Josh on the @TodayShow Friday morning! He'll be performing and co-hosting!

@martinamcbride: Driving in Nashville make me nervous. When I get older, I'm definitely going to need a driver. Like Driving Miss Daisy.
