Next Friday, CMT will air a new episode of Crossroads that finds Margo Price paired up with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Ahead of the March 26th premiere, CMT has previewed the episode with a collaborative performance of Rateliff’s “Say It Louder”.

Taken from 2018’s Tearing At The Seams—Rateliff’s most recent album with his backing band before his 2020 solo excursion, And It’s Still Alright—”Say It Louder” lends itself well to the dual vocals of Rateliff and Price. As they switch off the song’s titular phrase, it echoes the call-and-response technique found in early R&B music. Following Rateliff’s extended foray as a solo singer-songwriter, it’s a welcome sight to see him with his backing band once more.

Filmed at The Factory in Franklin, just outside of Nashville, the upcoming installment of Crossroads will see Price and Rateliff trading off songs as they mine each other’s catalogs. This will mark the first episode of Crossroads since Halsey and Kelsea Ballerini performed in March 2020, after which the series was put on hiatus due to the pandemic.

“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.”
