Country music artists have always been known for their charitable efforts, and now three of the genre’s elite are being recognized with nominations for 2012 VH1 Do Something! Awards.

Country music’s resident mentor Jennifer Nettles and soul singer Robin Thicke kicked off week 7 of ‘Duets’ competition with their jazzy rendition of the 1980 Queen rock classic ‘Crazy Little Thing About Love,’ setting the bar high for a night of live Standards performances from the remaining four hopefuls.

Not as noticeable was Jennifer Nettle’s growing belly, with the Sugarland singer announcing her pregnancy since filming the first batch of episodes. After another impressive showing last week with a first and second place finish for J Rome and John Glosson, respectively, did the mother-to-be step it up and set raise the bar once again this week?
