Country hitmaker Chris Young will soon join musical forces with pop/rock artist Gavin DeGraw for a taping of CMT Crossroads.
The popular special, which first aired in 2002, pairs a country artist with an artist outside of the genre for a memorable night of music and stories.
Young, who is turning heads with his latest single, “Drowning,” is thrilled to team up with DeGraw for the show.
“He’s just … a great guy and a phenomenal vocalist,” Young shared with The Tennesseean. “He’s had so many hits, and he’s just someone I wanted to collaborate with. This is just the perfect time for us to get together and kind of riff on each other’s songs and have a good time with it.”
DeGraw, who best known for hits such as “Not Over You,” “I Don’t Want To Be” and “Chariot,” is no stranger to country collaborations. He previously recorded a song with his longtime friend Brett Young and even joined Shania Twain on her Rock This Country Tour in 2015.
Young and DeGraw’s episode of CMT Crossroads will air on CMT in early December.
