The first-ever outdoor “CMT Crossroads” event featuring Grammy-Award winners Earth, Wind & Fire is adding more country star power to the lineup as Dan + Shay, Darius Rucker, Drake White, Martina McBride, Rascal Flatts, Sara Evans and previously-announced Lady Antebellum, are all confirmed to join the critically-acclaimed group, known for their hits including “September” and “Boogie Wonderland,” on the ‘Crossroads’ stage. “CMT Crossroads: Earth, Wind & Fire And Friends” premieres Friday, June 23 at 10pm ET/PT.
The event promises to be a rocking party in downtown Nashville, and fans are invited to attend the taping on Tuesday, June 6th, on the corner of 5th and Demonbreun. The taping begins at 8:30pm CT, but fans are encouraged to come early as the event is standing room only, first-come, first-served. The taping kicks-off the star-studded 2017 CMT Music Awards, which will be held the next evening LIVE from Nashville at 8pm ET. CMT’s signature music events and specials fuel the summer – in addition to “Crossroads” and the “2017 CMT Music Awards,” an all-new episode of “CMT Instant Jam” with Brett Eldredge from Las Vegas premieres Friday, June 16 at 10pm ET/PT; and new episodes of “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” will continue to air weekly on Saturday and Sunday at 9am ET/PT.
“CMT Crossroads” is produced by Tom Forrest with John Hamlin and Margaret Comeaux executive producing for CMT.
