Chris Brown is recording a country song.

The 20-year-old singer - who has pleaded not guilty to assaulting on/off girlfriend Rihanna in February - is believed to be working on a new track called 'Trapped in a Dream' which may be included on his next album.

Chris' producer Robert Allen said: "Maybe we'll see an appearance from country star Carrie Underwood or someone like that. It's that kind of song.

"It's just feeling like you don't want that dream to go away. Everybody has a dream and you're in it, but you wake up and you're like, 'Oh, my God.' You feel like you're still in that dream."

Chris has submerged himself in work since he was accused of punching, hitting and choking Rihanna until she was unconscious in his rented Lamborghini on February 8.

Robert explained to E!: "We just focus on music. We're just happy-go-lucky people who just get into the studio as much as possible."

Chris is the latest in a string of artists to try their hand at country music.

Jessica Simpson recently released a country album, which included a collaboration with Dolly Parton.

Earlier this week, Jennifer Love Hewitt's boyfriend Jamie Kennedy revealed the actress is branching out into music.

He said: "Jennifer is writing a country song. I really want to make her a new demo for her music, because I think she should do singing again. She's so good."
