Sting And Vince Gill Will Perform On CMT Crossroads In November


It has been five years since CMT Crossroads has been recorded in New York City, but the critically acclaimed show will be back in the Big Apple this fall and will feature two singers who hardly need an introduction: Vince Gill and Sting. 
Together Sting and Vince have sold more than 125 million albums and won over 35 GRAMMYs. It would be hard to find two performers more deserving to star in the New York show this November.
"We are long overdue for a CMT Crossroads taping in New York City. Some of our best shows ever were taped there, and this will be no exception," said Senior Vice President of Music Events and Talent for CMT, John Hamlin. "These are two Hall of Famers who, by our count, have 36 GRAMMYs between them. Both artists have wanted to do Crossroads for years and this is the perfect pairing for them. They have been waiting for the right time and now is the time. This is going to be an unforgettable evening." 
Sting's band, The Police, was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. Sting has released 12 solo albums, his latest being Symphonicities. This year, he will celebrate 25 years since he started his solo career, and to commemorate the occasion, Universal Music Group will release Sting: 25 Years.
Vince Gill will join the 25-year solo artist on the stage this November, and he can certainly hold his own, even next to a global sensation as popular as Sting. VInce is known for his exquisite guitar playing as well as his recognizable tenor. He has won 18 CMA honors, including four awards for Song of the Year.  His latest single is called, "Threaten Me With Heaven," which will be featured on his upcoming album, Guitar Slinger, due in stores in October.
