Sara Evans and REO Speedwagon Meet at the Crossroads


Set your DVRs for Saturday, September 19th, because the next installment of CMT Crossroads is around the corner and it is an event you will not want to miss. Joining forces will be multi-platinum country singer-songwriter Sara Evans and chart-topping rock band REO Speedwagon for an unforgettable collaborative show.

REO Speedwagon’s Kevin Cronin expressed his excitement about working with the artist who was born to fly:

We met Sara Evans when REO played with Brad Paisley at the Sony Music Nashville annual cruise and we all became fast friends. When we got the offer to do “CMT Crossroads” with her we jumped at the chance to hear Sara’s sweet voice on our songs, and to put our spin on hers. Sara put me at ease right away and her energy is contagious.

Sara, likewise, shared enthusiasm about teaming up with REO Speedwagon for this once in a lifetime special:

I’ve been a huge fan of REO Speedwagon for as long as I can remember. Their songs have been a part of the soundtrack of my life and I’m thrilled to be joining them on stage for “CMT Crossroads.” It truly is a dream come true!

CMT Crossroads will air on CMT on Saturday, September 19th, at 10pm EST.
