Each episode features a different set of stars playing together, swapping stories and sharing their common love of music.

On Monday, September 3, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, CMT premiered the 66th episode of CROSSROADS, featuring Grammy Award-winning pop superstar Meghan Trainor and platinum selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge. Taped in front of a live audience at Liberty Hall in Franklin, TN, the one-hour show features the duo sharing the stage and swapping vocals on their most beloved hits, including Trainor's "All About That Bass," "No Excuses," and "Let You Be Right," as well as Eldredge's "Drunk on Your Love," "Wanna Be That Song," and "Haven't Met You." The duo also belt out the classic Kenny Rodgers and Dolly Parton duet, "Islands in the Stream."

The two first connected at a CMA Awards after-party in 2014 when Eldredge won new artist of the year and Trainor sang "All About That Bass" with Miranda Lambert. That night was a family affair, and they had a dance party with Trainor's father until 4am. With powerful voices that embrace throwback soul and big band jazz, they've basically been friends and musical soul mates ever since. "Brett and I have known each other for a few years now, and I am such a fan of not only Brett's music but him as a person," Trainor says. "We first worked together on the song 'Baby It's Cold Outside' for his Christmas album, so I was thrilled to collaborate with him again on CMT CROSSROADS. He's a superstar, and I was star-struck during the whole performance!"
