“Having John and Lee Ann join us at CMT Crossroads is going to be an incredible pairing—they are both among the most respected singers in their genres,” says John Hamlin, Sr. VP Music, Events and Talent, CMT. “This has all the makings of another classic Crossroads collaboration.”

Legend released his debut album, Get Lifted, in December 2004 through Columbia Records. The album earned Legend several Grammy honors in 2006, including Best R&B Album, Best New Artist, and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. His follow-up, 2006’s Once Again, brought another Grammy for Best Male R&B Performance. His most recent breakout hit, “All of Me” spent three weeks atop Billboard‘s Hot 100 Singles Chart, with sales of more than four million in the U.S. and six million worldwide.

Womack is the recipient of the CMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year honor, as well as Album of the Year for There’s More Where That Came From, as well as Single of the Year awards for “I May Hate Myself in the Morning” and “I Hope You Dance.” She is a favored duet partner for Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Buddy Miller, George Strait, Jim Lauderdale and more. She will release her first project for Sugar Hill Records, titled The Way I’m Livin’, on Sept. 23.
