Jason Aldean and Bob Seger Come Together for CMT Crossroads

Jason Aldean

Get ready to “take those old records off the shelf” – American music icon Bob Seger will collaborate with country superstar Jason Aldean later this month for an all-new installment of CMT CROSSROADS. The network’s flagship music series pairs Seger, described by New York Daily News music critic Jim Farber as the “lion of literate American rock,” with Aldean, country music’s most downloaded male artist in history, for an evening of never-before-heard duets on one another’s hit songs. CMT CROSSROADS: BOB SEGER AND JASON ALDEAN will premiere Black Friday, November 28 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.

Two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” Aldean recently released his sixth studio album, Old Boots, New Dirt. The new album’s smoking lead single, “Burnin’ It Down” earned platinum certification in only nine weeks, making it the fastest selling single of 2014. To date, Aldean has sold more than 9 million albums and has taken 13 trips to No. 1 on the country radio charts. Each of Aldean’s albums has been certified platinum with his last album, Night Train, earning certification only four weeks after its release. Aldean was recently recognized by the RIAA as the top male digital country artist in history with sales totaling more than 21 million downloads. He is currently headlining his monumental 2014 Burn It Down Tour, which saw him play five stadium dates in addition to sold out shows in the country’s biggest amphitheaters and arenas.

CMT’s hit biography series INSIDE FAME returns with an exclusive profile of four-time Grammy-nominated artist and global phenomenon Hunter Hayes premiering Saturday, November 1 at 8 p.m., ET/PT. At age 23, Hayes has amassed sales of more than 9 million digital tracks worldwide, and earlier this year was named one of Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30.” A multi-talented performer, musician, producer and writer, his career first made the national spotlight after he performed onstage with Hank Williams Jr. at the age of five. CMT chronicles the life of the musical prodigy turned country superstar in the one-hour special episode INSIDE FAME: HUNTER HAYES, featuring new interviews with Hayes about his sophomore album, Storyline, and never-before-seen performance clips.

In the new installment of INSIDE FAME, Hayes speaks candidly about growing up in Breaux Bridge, La., and the passions that eventually brought him to Nashville, including his earliest performances and his first guitar – a gift from Hollywood legend Robert Duvall. The superstar has accomplished much at an early age, including the Guinness World Record for the most live concerts performed in 24 hours in different cities. The special features new interviews with those closest to Hayes including his family, label representatives, music critics and fellow superstars Carrie Underwood, Jason Mraz, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts; who share what it’s like to collaborate with the young artist and just what makes Hayes so special.
