LeAnn Rimes is the guest of honor on the next installment of “CMT Crossroads.”  The concert event also includes Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark, Carly Pearce and Mickey Guyton, who will help commemorate Rimes’ 25th anniversary as a recording artist.

Said Rimes: “It was such a magical and surreal experience, celebrating the past 25 years of my music as a full installment of ‘CMT Crossroads. And to share the stage with women who are each, so unique and truly standing in their own magnificence, to get to hear firsthand how I have, in some special way, influenced their artistry… it was humbling and special.”  Rimes added: “This is such an expansive year for me, from my new album release later this year to my upcoming tour, and I could not think of a better way to kick it all off than to celebrate the past, present, and future with this memorable show.”

“CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes & Friends” features McBryde, Clark, Pearce and Guyton performing Rimes’ most popular hits along with her, as well as Rimes taking a solo turn in the spotlight.  The show will air during the first-ever CMT MUSIC AWARDS WEEK, featuring all-new original programming culminating with the “CMT Music Awards Extended Cut” featuring 30 extra minutes of bonus content and performances on Friday, April 15 at 8p/7c.
