One of the best things about living in Music City is the amazing things you get into, often times for free. A friend recently made me her plus one for the taping of CMT Crossroads with Randy Travis and the Avett Brothers and out of sheer excitement I was babbling about it to everyone. Probably told a few strangers on the street; I felt like Charlie with the golden ticket!
That Wednesday night we all loaded into Jamison Hall in The Factory at Franklin and heard one of the best shows that most people will never experience. That’s why Crossroads is such a unique experience‹because you get two see two bands that probably won’t ever play on the same stage in real life. Both played about four of their hits, each singing on the other’s tunes. It was relaxed, it was beautiful and we all smiled like idiots and clapped wildly just as we were told.
If you ever have the chance to get “in” to one of the CMT Crossroad shows, it’s honestly one of the best musical experiences only a place like Nashville can provide.
