Lady Antebellum Joining Earth, Wind & Fire for ‘CMT Crossroads’
Lady Antebellum is mixing it up with one of the most well-known bands of the '70s, Earth, Wind & Fire, for CMT’s Crossroads series, which brings in artists of different genres to perform with country stars, including their own hits.
The episode, dubbed CMT Crossroads With Earth, Wind & Fire and Friends, will be a special outdoor event featuring more than one country artist, though Lady A is the only one to be named thus far.
Some of Earth, Wind & Fire’s biggest hits include “September,” “Boogie Wonderland” and “Shining Star,” and the band was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. The group has won six Grammy Awards during its decades-long career. The unique show will be filmed in downtown Nashville and will air June 23 at 10PM ET on CMT.
In the meantime Lady Antebellum will be gearing up for the release of their new album, Heart Break, from which they just released the title track. It follows the lead-off single, “You Look Good,” a soulful, funky tune with a horn section that brings a unique sound to the band’s first album since two of the members took turns with solo efforts. They performed the tune at the 2017 ACM Awards, and it’s since hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. Heart Break is also expected to bring a family-oriented, sentimental side out in the band members, featuring songs about their spouses and their children. It’s slated to be officially available June 9.
