The new episode pairs the superstars in a one-hour special
CMT has revealed the newest installment of the iconic CMT Crossroads franchise featuring platinum-selling artists Hozier and Maren Morris. CMT Crossroads: Hozier & Maren Morris premieres with a special one-hour presentation on Friday, September 22nd at 10 pm ET/PT, with an immediate encore at 11 pm ET/PT and on Saturday, September 23rd at noon ET/PT. It will also go live on Wednesday, September 23rd on CMT.com, CMT VOD and the MTV app, with subsequent premieres on CMT Music and MTV Live.
CMT Crossroads: Hozier & Maren Morris reunites the Grammy-nominated Irish singer-songwriter with Grammy Award-winner Maren Morris who first collaborated in 2019 when they together released a version of Morris’ massive crossover hit “The Bones.” The CMT Crossroads episode has the musicians swapping stories and performing on each other’s most-celebrated songs, including Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” “Work Song,” and two releases off his newest album “Eat Your Young” and “All Things End;” and with Morris’ “The Bones,” and “My Church,” “Girl,” and her new single, “The Tree.”
“Getting to share songs with Maren Morris for CMT Crossroads was a uniquely rewarding and fun experience,” Hozier shares. “I’ve often felt a great deal of kinship between her work and my own. Getting to explore that and work alongside someone so outrageously talented was a joy. There were moments on that stage that I got to be a musician, a performer, collaborator and an audience member to Maren’s beautiful new music all at once.”
“Hozier is such a necessary artist to these times,” Morris adds. “He meets every moment with tenderness, clever wit and a strong moral stance for what is right. I’ve loved becoming friends with him over the years and I truly consider him to be one of the best of our generation. It was so much fun to collaborate again.”
This episode of the critically acclaimed music series was filmed in front of a live audience in the heart of downtown Nashville at Bridgestone Arena.
