Two highly-acclaimed musicians, Sting and Vince Gill, are the latest duo to take the stage for an all-new episode of CMT CROSSROADS premiering Thursday, November 24 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. The performance, taped earlier this year at New York City’s famed Hammerstein Ballroom, resulted in an exceptional night of rocking collaborations and in-depth interviews.
The 90-minute premiere features the duo partnering on Sting’s hits including “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You,” and “Every Breath You Take,” plus Vince Gill’s “Liza Jane” and “Whenever You Come Around.” The musical chemistry between these multiple Grammy Award winners (over 35 between them) shines on stage, especially during their chilling cover of the Everly Brothers “Let It Be Me.”
Never-before-seen interviews with the two musicians reveal their reflections on the longevity and success of their careers, thoughts on popular assumptions about the meanings of their songs, how they’ve developed as artists, and ultimately, why they continue to play music. The passion and respect both Sting and Gill possess for their craft has never come across so elegantly on a CMT CROSSROADS stage.
