On Tuesday night in downtown Nashville, Kenny Chesney and Steve Miller teamed up for an incredible session of CMT Crossroads. The taping was at the legendary Ryman Auditorium… a first for a “Crossroads” episode.

The set began with Chesney and Miller performing “Living In Fast Forward,” which took three tries for everyone to get it right for the cameras. It was followed by “I Want My Rib Back”, a rare song that Miller picked from Kenny’s debut album In My Wildest Dreams. The other Chesney song that the pair sang together was “I Go Back.” After this, Miller left the stage and Chesney and the band sang his new single “Ain’t Back Yet.” Kenny said it was their first time doing it live.

Steve Miller then performed “Fly Like An Eagle” and a newly recorded single called “Hey Ya.” After this, Chesney joined Miller again and did “Abracadabra” (which also took three tries), “Dizzy,” “The Joker,” “Rockin’ Me,” and “Jet Airliner.”

Towards the end of the show, Steve Miller told Kenny they should go over to Tootsies Orchid Lounge and play some more after they were done at the Ryman. Sure enough they showed up and rocked the small bar on Broadway.

    Yeah, but who punked out and missed the Tootsie’s gig? Drunk driving is bad, drunk driving airplanes is worse, but we’ve got hotels, y’know?
