Lady Antebellum is the first confirmed country act that will take part in a special outdoor CMT Crossroads featuring Earth, Wind & Fire.
More country acts are expected to be revealed in the coming days for the show, which will be filmed in downtown Nashville at a soon-to-be announced date.
Some of Earth, Wind & Fire’s biggest hits—such as “September,” “Let’s Groove” and “Shining Star”—will get a country twist as a bevy of country stars perform songs from EWF’s catalog. Earth, Wind & Fire, which was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000, has won six Grammy Awards over its 40-plus-year career.
CMT Crossroads With Earth, Wind & Fire and Friends will air June 23 at 10 p.m. ET on CMT.
