Taylor Swift and Shania Twain have channelled Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis' performances in Thelma & Louise to film a promo clip for the 2011 CMT Music Awards.

The country singers shot the Thelma & Louise-themed segment in Thompson's Station in Tennessee on Monday, posing for photos in a classic blue convertible similar to the one used in the iconic 1991 movie, about two best friends on the run from the law. "Glee" star Chord Overstreet is also in the promo taking over Brad Pitt's breakout role.

Swift, 21, is a triple nominee for the 2011 prizegiving. The winners, voted for by country music fans, will be announced at a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, June 8. Kid Rock will host.

Taylor is also set to give the Black Eyed Peas' upcoming charity concert in New York a country twist by joining them onstage in the city's famed Central Park.

BEP will treat fans to a special outdoor show on Thursday to raise funds for anti-poverty group the Robin Hood Foundation.

Stars including Deborah Harry, LL Cool J and Natasha Bedingfield, along with actors Whoopi Goldberg and Zach Braff have already signed up to make appearances at the gig, and now Swift has joined the line-up.

Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie says, "We are thrilled to have Taylor on board to benefit two very important causes. Not only will she will be an amazing addition to our line-up, she is an incredible inspiration to people of all ages and her music gives a voice to those who feel left behind."
