“CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes and Friends” Premieres Thurs, April 14th



LeAnn Rimes, a multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning singer-songwriter, will headline a future episode of CMT’s iconic music series “CMT Crossroads,” according to CMT. The all-female performance event, which features Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark, Carly Pearce, and Mickey Guyton, honours Rimes’ 25th career anniversary and respects the road she blazed for women in all genres. “CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes & Friends” premieres Thursday, April 14th at 8 p.m./7c 

The 90-minute programme brings Rimes together with the next generation of female musicians who have been inspired and heavily impacted by her music, with one-of-a-kind performances of her biggest chart-topping, genre-bending singles with new compositions. From paying tribute to her ground-breaking career and unforgettable music that has stood the test of time to previewing new music from her forthcoming 19th studio album, god’s work, “CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes & Friends” pays tribute to her ground-breaking career and unforgettable music that has stood the test of time.

“It was such a magical and surreal experience, celebrating the past 25 years of my music as a full instalment 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 first hand how I have, in some special way, influenced their artistry… it was humbling and special,” said LeAnn Rimes, who recently announced her upcoming tour, the story… so far, in support of her 25th music anniversary and forthcoming album, god’s work. “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.”

“What better way to celebrate LeAnn’s music and legacy than to bring together those who credit LeAnn for inspiring their own careers,” said Margaret Comeaux, Executive Producer & Senior Vice President, Production, CMT. “The reciprocal admiration amongst these women is more than evident throughout filming, and makes for a truly magical connection on stage in this special extended episode of CMT Crossroads.”

From the release of her first smash music video for “Blue” to her show-stopping tribute to Reba at the first-ever “CMT Giants” taping, Rimes has a long connection with CMT. Rimes, a three-time CMT Music Awards nominee, won her first award in 2008 (“Collaborative Video of the Year” with Bon Jovi) and has given numerous memorable performances on CMT stages throughout her career, including the world premiere of “Swingin'” and an outstanding performance of “Nothin’ Better To Do” at previous CMT Music . Rimes also collaborated with British soul singer Joss Stone on a highly appreciated episode of “CMT Crossroads.”
