Kenny Chesney teamed up with classic rocker Steve Miller to tape an episode of the music series CMT Crossroads Tuesday night at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The set list leaned heavy on Steve's catalog of hits such as "The Joker," "Rock'n Me," "Jet Airliner" and "Abacadabra." Steve also sang the classic "Fly Like an Eagle" by himself, while Kenny performed his new single "Ain't Back Yet" solo.
Together, Kenny and Steve performed Kenny's hits "Living in Fast Forward" and "I Go Back," the latter of which actually references "Rock'n Me" in the lyrics. Steve also talked Kenny into performing the obscure tune "I Want My Rib Back" from Kenny's 1994 debut album, In My Wildest Dreams.
Kenny and Steve rehearsed late into the night on Monday for the show, and Kenny soaked up a lot of wisdom during their time together. He says, "To sit around and talk with someone like Steve Miller about life, music, the career, the dream -- that makes for a pretty amazing day." The party continued after the taping as Kenny and Steve took the stage at Nashville's famed Tootsie's Orchid Lounge on Lower Broadway for a late-night jam session. No air date has been announced yet for their CMT Crossroads appearance.
