The CMT Crossroads series has been a longstanding concert mash up of artists singing each others songs and collaborating on new arrangements of hits from each others arsenals, and normally they pair a pop or rock artist with someone from country music…but in this unforgettable episode, they paired up these two icons for a performance that blew the roof of the venue!
Taking the stage and kicking off the show in a typically-wild fashion, Kid Rock and Hank Jr. opened with a rowdy mash-up of the classic country hit, “Midnight Rider” and Kid Rock’s own “Cowboy” hit. The crowd flew to their feet with the first chorus and roared into applause.
Although Kid Rock took the lead vocals on this fired-up performance, Hank Jr. did not hold back and came in with some rowdy and raucous harmonies – especially on the signature line “Cowboy!”
