If versatility is the key to longevity in the music business, Justin Bieber might be around for a long time.
The pop-singing teen heartthrob announced his collaboration with country music band Rascal Flatts via Twitter on Sunday, writing, "I love @RascalFlatts and I'm honored that they are making music with me."
The band's front man Gary LeVox revealed the origins of the project in an interview with WSIX, a radio station in Nashville: "[Justin] asked us to do a duet with him on his next record," said Gary. "It's actually a really good song."
Justin's sophomore studio album is due out in 2011.
