Kenny Chesney Hits a ‘Crossroads’ With Steve Miller
If you have seen Kenny Chesney in concert or at one of his infamous ‘Keg in the Closet’ shows, you probably have heard him perform a Steve Miller song or two. The pair even showed up on stage together in 2008, trading songs during the country entertainer’s stadium show in San Francisco.
It was just announced the two will pair up for an upcoming episode of CMT’s long-running series ‘Crossroads,’ taping next month before an invitation-only audience in Nashville. The two will perform on each other’s songs and swap stories in the show, which will air later this year.
“[Steve]’s songs are so much fun, so much a part of who anyone growing up who’s a rock fan is,” explains Kenny. “And having him onstage with us — doing ‘Rockin’ Me’ and ‘The Joker’ — was one of those moments where you can’t believe your life … He’s been on the road for four decades and he’s just as good now, not to mention the way he can play a guitar. It is truly an honor to get to do this with him.”
This will be Kenny’s second appearance on ‘Crossroads,’ first having hit the stage with another musical influence, John Mellencamp, in 2003.
Currently, the Tennessee native is putting the finishing touches on his movie, ‘Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D,’ and is getting ready to digitally reissue his new ‘Greatest Hits II’ collection, with two new songs ‘This is Our Moment’ and ‘Ain’t Back Yet,’ on March 2.
