Never underestimate the power of an unexpected country collaboration.
When Jimmy Buffet met Alan Jackson, he re-energized his career as the mayor of Margaritaville. When Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow sang a song together, somehow they both became viable country acts. When Blake Shelton performed a duet with Miranda Lambert, he found his future wife.
And when Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler teamed up last year at the Academy of Country Music Awards to howl out “Undo It” and “Walk This Way,” they got themselves a CMT special!
The country music station has just announced that Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler are getting their own episode of CMT Crossroads, a show that throws together performers from different genres and has them sing each other’s songs. Suffice it to say, we’re excited about this one.
As proven at the ACM Awards last April, Underwood’s clear, belty tone meshes surprisingly well with the Aerosmith frontman’s howly-growly screams. Check out their original collaboration below:
