When it comes to collaborations, Tim McGraw isn't just about working with other country artists.

The "Highway Don't Care" singer has made music with Nelly, Ne-Yo, Lionel Richie, Tony Bennett and even his Country Strong costar Gwyneth Paltrow, among others.

"There are a lot of great artists out there," McGraw told me yesterday while promoting his two-hour television special ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night (Sunday, May 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS). "I think Pink is fantastic. I love her voice. A duet with Bruce Springsteen would be a big home run for me."

He thanks his daughters with wife Faith Hill for introducing him to some of today's biggest pop stars. "With a couple of teenage girls in the house, at any given time I could be driving our Griswold Family Cruiser with six high school cheerleaders and hear any number of things musically that I would never be exposed to," he said.

Including a certain boy band from the U.K. "I hear One Direction all the time coming from upstairs in the house," McGraw said.

Yup, he can picture himself on stage with 1D. "They're pretty awesome," McGraw said.

While the girls are also fans of Justin Bieber, that's a duet McGraw doesn't see happening. "I don't know if I have the moves," McGraw said. "I think I might embarrass my daughters if I try to dance."
