Kenny Chesney will join several other artists for CMT Crossroads: Joe Walsh & Friends, premiering June 23rd.:

Joe Walsh will join forces with Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Sara Evans and Hunter Hayes for a new episode of CMT Crossroads premiering June 23 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on CMT. CMT Crossroads: Joe Walsh and Friends will also feature collaborations with the legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist on solo hits such as “Life’s Been Good” and Eagles classics including “Life in the Fast Lane.”

Walsh came to national prominence in the late ’60s as a member of the James Gang with hits such as “Funk #49.” In the early ’70s, he embarked on a solo career that included “Rocky Mountain Way” and other hits before joining the Eagles with their 1976 album, Hotel California. As an Eagles member, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998. He’s now touring to support the June 5 release of Analog Man, his first solo album in 20 years.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to be onboard for a CMT Crossroads episode,” Walsh said. “I’ve handpicked some old friends and some new friends, and we’re going to make sure it’s a special evening. Nothing beats country music with a little rock ‘n’ roll sprinkled on top. We’re going to mix up a batch and see what happens. I got a real good feeling about it. Nashville, here we come!”

    Very cool.  I wish CMT would have the Crossroads DVD’s for sale.  They did it for Taylor Swift and Martina McBride so why not the others?
