Brett Eldredge & Meghan Trainor Cross Paths on Upcoming “CMT Crossroads”

Brett Eldredge and Meghan Trainor recorded an episode of CMT Crossroads at the Liberty Hall in Franklin, Tenn., on April 24. The hour-long episode will premiere on CMT on Sept. 3 at 10 p.m. CT.

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.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
