I recently found out about Country Music Television’s innovative show called Crossroads, which brings together two music artists, one from Country music and another from the world of Rock/Pop, who perform onstage together. For example, the one I saw last featured Ray Charles and Travis Tritt. Other shows have paired Brad Paisley & John Mayer, Ryan Adams & Elton John, and Lucinda Williams & Elvis Costello.
This is a great idea, which naturally isn’t on one of the big networks. Kudos to CMT for creating this great music program. I highly recommend it if you know a bit about the aforementioned rock/pop stars, but want to learn more about country music (or vice-versa). For information on showtimes click here.
