Margo Price and Nathaniel Rateliff will team up to co-headline an upcoming episode of Country Music Television‘s live-music mashup series CMT Crossroads.
The television series pairs country music artists with other musicians known for outside genres, where they trade off performing each other’s songs. The episode featuring Price and Rateliff scheduled to air on Friday, March 26th, at 10 p.m. ET, will see Price perform “Say It Louder” from Rateliff’s 2018 Tearing at the Seams album, while Rateliff will cover “Twinkle Twinkle” from Price’s 2020 album That’s How Rumors Get Started.
“I am excited to be playing ‘CMT Crossroads’. Through the last five years, the band and I constantly crossed paths with Margo Price and her band at Farm Aids, The Outlaw Fest, Newport Folk, and more places,” Rateliff said of the upcoming episode. “Our first chance to hang together was on Willie Nelson’s bus at Farm Aid. Ever since this I have loved watching her and the band play. She is a hell of a performer and songwriter.”
Price also added in a statement, “Through the years the two of us have sat in and sang with both Willie and his son Lukas, but we have never sang together on our own material. I’m really looking forward to collaborating after all this time.”
The forthcoming episode will also be the first installment of CMT Crossroads since Halsey and Kelsea Ballerini’s episode premiered in March 2020 ahead of COVID-19 shutting down live events in the United States.
