Legendary rock icon Steve Miller will celebrate the release of BINGO! by sharing the stage with longtime friend Kenny Chesney on CMT's hit show Crossroads, the ultimate mash up, where unlikely bedfellows perform one another's songs and share stories. It's like a country music fireside chat. Miller and Chesney filmed the show in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium. The show will air Friday, July 9 at 10 PM ET. Songs featured in the hour long episode will include Miller's classics such as "The Joker" and "Abracadabra," as well as "You Got Me Dizzy" from the new album BINGO! The performance will also include Chesney hits "Living In Fast Forward" and "I Go Back."
"From the first time Kenny invited me to play with him in San Francisco at AT&T Park, until this minute he has been a refreshing and wonderful friend," Miller said in a statement. "I love the way he conducts himself, treats his band, crew, fans, and friends. Artists this busy barely have time for saying hello, yet Kenny takes the time to get to know you and shares himself. That is a very rare and endearing quality. He is a great performer, a great writer and a great guy to roll with. He's the real deal."
