TUNE IN THIS FRIDAY FOR THE PREMIERE OF "CMT CROSSROADS: BRYAN ADAMS AND JASON ALDEAN"

Aldean Praised For Vocal Chops in "Heaven" Performance

NASHVILLE, TN - Nov 16, 2010 - Global rock and roll superstar Bryan Adams will share the stage with platinum selling and chart topping country rocker, Jason Aldean, when the pair team up for the latest episode of CMT CROSSROADS.  The program premieres Friday, June 26 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT.  

"To be on stage singing with someone I've looked up to musically my entire life is hard to describe.  I keep thinking, did this really happen?" says Aldean. "He has so many great songs, and it was truly hard to narrow them down to what we did for the show.   I hope I did them justice."

The Associated Press says there is "a sense of drama and dynamics in how Aldean sings," and CMT.com follows it up proclaiming, "Aldean has a powerful set of pipes."

Fans can get a preview of what's to come in the hour special by checking out Aldean's performance with Adams of the Canadian rocker's 1985 multi-week No. one hit "Heaven" here.

Bryan Adams and Jason Aldean join an elite group of performers who have taped CMT CROSSROADS, which pairs country music stars with popular artists from other genres--pop, rock, R&B--to play together, swap stories, and share their common love of music.  Previous episodes of CROSSROADS have included Lindsey Buckingham and Little Big Town; Bon Jovi and Sugarland; John Fogerty and Keith Urban; Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire; Joss Stone and LeAnn Rimes; Robert Plant and Alison Krauss; and Def Leppard and Taylor Swift.
