CMT Crossroads is packing the stage with stars in an upcoming episode. Legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist Joe Walsh is going to explore his country side as he teams up with Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Sara Evans, Hunter Hayes, and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.
“I’ve hand-picked some old friends and some new friends, and we’re going to make sure it’s a special evening,” Joe told CMT. “Nothing beats country music with a little rock ‘n’ roll sprinkled on top.“
Joe Walsh is known on solo hits such as “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” and Eagles classics including “Life in the Fast Lane,” “Hotel California,” and “New Kid in Town.”
This isn’t the first time Joe Walsh and Brad Paisley have shared the same stage. The two performed at the CMT ‘Artists of the Year’ ceremony with a mashup of “Life’s Been Good” and “Camouflage.”
“It’s an honor and a privilege to be onboard for a CMT Crossroads episode,” Joe says. “We’re going to mix up a batch and see what happens. I got a real good feeling about it. Nashville, here we come!“
CMT Crossroads: Joe Walsh and Friends premieres on June 23rd at 11 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
