CMT has announced that Grammy-nominated R&B artist Leon Bridges is teaming up with global breakthrough Country singer-songwriter Luke Combs for a special outdoor “CMT Crossroads” event premiering Thursday, June 28 at 10pm ET/PT. The one-hour show will feature chart-topping hits as well as new songs from both critically-acclaimed artists.

Fans are invited to attend the “Crossroads” taping on Tuesday, June 5, on the corner of 5thand Broadway in downtown Nashville. The taping begins at 8:30pm CT and fans should arrive early as the event is standing room only, first-come, first-served. The “CMT Crossroads” outdoor event adds to an exciting week of live music, preceding the “CMT Music Awards,” which will air LIVE from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, June 6 at 8pm ET/7pm CT.

Leon Bridges is a two-time Grammy nominated R&B artist and songwriter from Fort Worth, TX. Leon Bridges’ early work on the open mic circuit prompted comparisons to legends like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, but he quickly came into his own as a Top Ten, multiple Grammy-nominated, globally touring artist. His debut album, Coming Home, debuted at number six on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA. In May 2018, Leon released his sophomore album Good Thing globally via Columbia Records. Critics heralded Good Thing for its modern R&B sound, lush production and joyous songwriting.

Luke Combs is a multi-platinum No. 1 Country singer-songwriter from Asheville, North Carolina. With brazen songwriting talent and grizzled, soul-infused vocals, Combs stormed onto the music landscape as one of Country’s brightest stars with the release of his critically-acclaimed No. 1 debut album, This One’s For You on River House Artists/Columbia Nashville. Celebrated for its lyrical fortitude and modern traditionalist bravado, the project spurred two consecutive multi-week No. 1 hits “Hurricane” and “When It Rains It Pours”. On June 1, Combs will release This One’s For You Too, a 17-track expanded collection of his celebrated debut project. The road warrior recently wrapped his 55-city sold-out first headlining Don’t Tempt Me With A Good Time Tour, performed on all-star lineups for CMA Music Fest, Stagecoach & Austin City Limits and joins Jason Aldean on his nationwide Summer 2018 tour.
