Chris Brown: Feeling a Little Bit Country

Chris Brown isn't letting those legal troubles get in the way of him putting out some new music.

The embattled singer might even try to dip into the country music world with "Trapped in a Dream," a song that's being considered for his upcoming new album.

He may go so far as to ask a country music star or two to appear on the track...

"Maybe we'll see an appearance from Carrie Underwood or someone like that," Robert Allen, a writer and producer currently working with Brown, told us last night at the BMI Pop Awards in Beverly Hills. "It's that kind of song."

So what's it about?

"It's just feeling like you don't want that dream to go away," Allen explained. "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."

Allen said Brown doesn't talk about what's going on with Rihanna, who is also spending time in the studio. "We just focus on music," he said. "We're just happy-go-lucky people who just get into the studio as much as possible."

This year's BMI Pop Awards, which honor songwriters and music publishers, included performances from Estelle, Michael Bublé and Colbie Caillat. Among the guests were Taylor Swift , Adam Levine, Chris Daughtry and Jordin Sparks.
