Collaborative event premieres Monday, September 3rd on CMT
CMT closes out its summer of electrifying music with the announcement of an all-new CMT Crossroads mashup featuring multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning pop superstar Meghan Trainor and platinum selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge premiering Monday, September 3rd at 10 pm ET/PT.
“Brett and I have known each other for a few years now and I am such a fan of not only Brett’s music, but him as a person,” states Trainor. “We first worked together on the song ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ for his Christmas album, so I was thrilled to collaborate with him again on CMT Crossroads. He’s a superstar and I was star struck during the whole performance!’’
“I just love Meghan’s sound – she’s got a funky, swaggy thing to her music that no one else is doing,” says Eldredge. “She’s one-of-a-kind and I’m excited to perform with her again, this time on Crossroads. We’re going to make everybody feel alive. We’re going to make them feel it in their hearts and their souls. We’re going to bring big vocals and magic moments.”
Taped earlier this year, the one-hour show features popular hits including Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” “No Excuses” and current single “Let You Be Right,” from her upcoming album, Treat Myself. The two friends also collaborate on Eldredge’s “Drunk on Your Love,” “Wanna Be That Song,” “Haven’t Met You” and the classic Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton duet, “Islands in the Stream.”
The news comes on the heels of impressive ratings growth for CMT which is on track to have its highest rated year since 2014. In F3Q’18, CMT was one of just ten channels in the Top 50 to show YOY growth in P18-49. CMT has notched six consecutive quarters of YOY growth among P18-49, which is the longest active streak in all of television.
