Maren Morris to Team With Alicia Keys for ‘CMT Crossroads’
Pairing country artists with musicians of other genres, Crossroads is a unique concert and television broadcast series that finds the stars playing together, swapping songs and sharing their common passion for great music. Morris and Keys' episode will air in December.
The upcoming collaborative concert is another big milestone in a year full of them for Morris. The country newcomer has quickly gained popular and critical acclaim since releasing her debut album, Hero, and single "My Church." She's spent the summer opening for Keith Urban during his 2016 Ripcord World Tour, shared the stage with Rascal Flatts at the 2016 CMA Music Festival and will now be joining Keys for a collaboration on the popular CMT concert series. The 26-year-old singer seems delighted with her Crossroads partner, too: She recently posted the concert ad on her Instagram with the caption "VIBE. CITY. This is gonna be a night to remember."
Her episode of Crossroads might not be the only time that country music fans will see Keys in the coming months either: The pop star is a coach on the upcoming season of The Voice, which also, of course, features Blake Shelton.
Morris and Keys' episode of Crossroads will tape in Nashville and air on CMT on Dec. 2 at 10PM ET.
