After meeting at the CMA Awards in 2014, Brett and Meghan collaborated on “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” which was featured on Brett’s 2016 holiday album, Glow.

“Brett and I have known each other for a few years now, and I am such a fan of not only Brett’s music, but him as a person, ” says Meghan. “I was thrilled to collaborate with him again on CMT Crossroads. He’s a superstar and I was starstruck during the whole performance.”

“I just love Meghan’s sound—she’s got a funky, swaggy thing to her music that no one else is doing,” Brett says. “She’s one-of-a-kind, and I’m excited to perform with her again, this time on Crossroads. We’re going to make everybody feel alive. We’re going to make them feel it in their hearts and their souls. We’re going to bring big vocals and magic moments.”

The Crossroads collaboration will feature Meghan’s “All About That Bass,” “No Excuses” and “Let You Be Right,” as well as Brett’s “Drunk on Your Love,” “Wanna Be That Song” and “Haven’t Met You.” In addition, the duo will sing Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton’s “Islands in the Stream.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
