We’ve had to keep this secret for a few months but now we can finally tell you – a CMT Crossroads episode featuring Megan Trainor & Brett Eldredge (which was filmed in Franklin) will air Monday, Sept 3.
Trainor and Eldredge became friends after meeting at a CMA Awards after party in 2014. That year, Eldredge won his first CMA award for new artist of the year, and Trainor sang “All About That Bass” with Miranda Lambert. The two have supported each other’s music projects – Trainor recorded “Baby It’s Cold Outside” on Eldredge’s holiday album, Glow and Eldredge was also in the audience at Trainor’s Nashville No. 1 party for “All About That Bass.”
So the match-up for this episode seems like a natural progression. The reason for the delay airing is that Trainor released a new album on August 31 ‘Treat Myself’ and you’ll get a sample of the album from the show. Watch the video above and hear Eldredge and Trainor sing a track from her album “Let You Be Right.”
In between songs, Trainor shares about her time in Nashville giving shout outs to some of her favorite restaurants like PM and J. Alexander’s.
Both Trainor and Eldredge started their musical careers as songwriters. Eldredge has cuts with Neal McCoy and Jake Owen. Trainor has No. 1 hits with Rascal Flatts (“I Like the Sound of That”) and Lauren Alaina (“Road Less Traveled”).
Watch CMT Crossroads Monday, September 3 at 9 p on CMT.
