Earth, Wind & Fire Joining All-Star Country Lineup for CMT’s ‘Crossroads’
The CMT Crossroads episode pairing Earth, Wind & Fire with Lady Antebellum and others country artists is airing Friday night (June 23), and the show features a slew of talent including Darius Rucker, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Dan + Shay, Sara Evans and Drake White.
CMT Crossroads With Earth, Wind & Fire and Friends was filmed during CMT's first Crossroads outdoor concert, which took place during CMA Fest week in downtown Nashville. The episode marks the second time the legendary R&B group has taken the stage with the country trio. After singing their own hit "You Look Good," Lady A performed with the iconic group during the 2017 CMT Music Awards singing their chart-topping signature number "September." They weren't the only collaboration to make a statement, with Florida Georgia Line teaming up with the Chainsmokers on "Last Day Alive" and Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood singing a stunning, stripped-down version of their hit song, "The Fighter."
Their CMT performance is just one of the many activities Lady Antebellum have planned for the summer. They're currently embarking on their expansive 2017 You Look Good World Tour, which takes them across the U.S., Europe and even to South Africa for the first time. Kelsea Ballerini and ToC RISERS artist Brett Young are joining them on the gig as opening acts. Their new album, Heart Break, dropped on June 9 and features the hit single, "You Look Good."
CMT Crossroads With Earth, Wind & Fire and Friends will air Friday (June 23) at 10PM ET on CMT.
