A new CMT Crossroads pairing, CMT Crossroads: Black Pumas & Mickey Guyton, is set to premiere on Wednesday, June 15 at 9 p.m. CT exclusively on the network.
Following their memorable collaboration of “Colors” at this year’s 2022 CMT Music Awards, the threesome will reunite for a night of high-energy performances and stripped-back renditions of each other’s hits, including Black Pumas’ “Fire” and “Confines,” and Guyton’s “Black Like Me” and “Better Than You Left Me.”
The special marks the Black Pumas first appearance on the CMT stage, while Guyton returns for her second Crossroads after last appearing on CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes & Friends alongside fellow powerhouse vocalists Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark and Carly Pearce.
“It was a pleasure to collaborate with Mickey Guyton for CMT Crossroads,” Black Pumas share. “Hearing her voice on our song ‘Fire’ was really incredible, she added so much of her own style to it in a way that still felt familiar to the song. We’re excited for everyone to see all of our performances together.”
Guyton adds, “We are huge Black Pumas fans in my house, so I was so excited to do this CMT Crossroads! Eric [Burton] and Adrian [Quesada] are just incredible and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did.”
Additional encores of the show will air on CMT on Wednesday, June 15 and Sunday June 19, as well as on MTV Live on Thursday, June 23.
