Vince Gill and Sting Team Up for ‘CMT Crossroads’
Vince Gill and Sting will be the next pair of artists to cross genres for a concert together. CMT announced Thursday that the two Grammy-winning artists would play together during a November episode of 'CMT Crossroads,' the popular live concert series that has previously paired artists like LeAnn Rimes with Joss Stone and Luke Bryan with the Doobie Brothers.
“These are two Hall of Famers who, by our count, have 36 Grammys between them," says John Hamlin from CMT. "Both artists have wanted to do 'Crossroads' for years and this is the perfect pairing for them. They have been waiting for the right time and now is the time. This is going to be an unforgettable evening.”
The exact date of Gill and Sting's episode has not been announced, but a press release revealed that the two will tape it in New York City. It will be the first 'CMT Crossroads' taped in New York City in over five years. There's no word on when the taping will occur.
The two artists have over 35 Grammy awards between them, and have sold over 125 million albums. Gill is expected to release a new album called 'Guitar Slinger' on October 25. It features his latest single, 'Threaten Me With Heaven.'
