On the heels of an unforgettable world-premiere collaboration of “Colors” at this year’s “2022 CMT Music Awards,” the threesome again reunite for an incredible night of high-energy performances and stripped back, soulful renditions of each other’s greatest hits, including Black Pumas’ “Fire” and “Confines” and Guyton’s “Black Like Me” and “Better than You Left Me.” The result is an effortless blend of retro-funk and powerhouse vocals with stirring performances interspersed alongside sit down conversations with the artists touching on the power of music in their lives, their shared journeys in the industry and song-writing processes.

Black Pumas shares, “It was a pleasure to collaborate with Mickey Guyton for CMT Crossroads. Hearing her voice on our song “Fire” was really incredible, she added so much of her own style to it in a way that still felt familiar to the song. We’re excited for everyone to see all of our performances together.”
Guyton continues, “We are huge Black Pumas fans in my house, so I was so excited to do this CMT Crossroads! Eric and Adrian are just incredible and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did.”
This marks Black Pumas first appearance on the celebrated CMT stage; Guyton returns for her second Crossroads after last appearing on “CMT Crossroads: LeAnn Rimes & Friends” alongside fellow female powerhouses Ashley McBryde, Brandy Clark and Carly Pearce.
