PLATINUM SELLING ARTIST SARA EVANS COLLABORATES WITH ROCKERS REO SPEEDWAGON
NASHVILLE – August 13, 2015 – CMT CROSSROADS is back with two new artists for a night of collaboration like no other. Chart-topping rock band REO Speedwagon and country singer/songwriter Sara Evans are the latest musicians to be paired together for an all-new episode of CMT’s flagship music series. Evans returns to the CROSSROADS stage for the third time, teaming up with the popular ’80s band in Franklin, TN for CMT CROSSROADS: REO SPEEDWAGON AND SARA EVANS which premieres on Saturday, September 19 at 10 pm ET/PT.
“We met Sara Evans when REO played with Brad Paisley at the Sony Music Nashville annual cruise and we all became fast friends,” said REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin. “When we got the offer to do ‘CMT Crossroads’ with her we jumped at the chance to hear Sara’s sweet voice on our songs, and to put our spin on hers. Sara put me at ease right away and her energy is contagious.”
“I’ve been a huge fan of REO Speedwagon for as long as I can remember,” said Sara Evans. “Their songs have been a part of the soundtrack of my life and I’m thrilled to be joining them on stage for ‘CMT Crossroads.’It truly is a dream come true!”
