I have been in love with the 'CMT Crossroads' series from day one. This was such a brilliant idea to put together a country star with a non-country act and have them perform each others songs together. It really has created some awesome music and memorable moments.

We have seen Brooks & Dunn team up with ZZ Top, Kenny Chesney and John Mellencamp, Taylor Swift and Def Leppard, Wynonna and Heart and Zac Brown and Jimmy Buffett to name just a few. Do you remember the very first one?

The first episode premiered on this date in 2002 and it featured singer songwriter Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello. Here is a clip of the show that started a decade and a half of great music and memories.
