BNA/NASHVILLE artist KENNY CHESNEY and rock icon STEVE MILLER celebrated their CMT CROSSROADS taping at the RYMAN AUDITORIUM in NASHVILLE last night (3/2) by doing an impromptu performance at TOOTSIE’S ORCHID LOUNGE. Just after leaving the RYMAN stage, the two performers walked across the street to the bar and played MILLER’s songs “Fly Like An Eagle,” “Take The Money And Run,” “The Joker,” “Rock’n Me” and more.
KENNY said: “The thing about STEVE MILLER is he's a music guy, not a genre guy. He loves everything and sees the sweet spot on HANK SR as easy as he does JIMMY REED … and that's what makes being onstage with him so much fun -- and what makes his songs hit people in so many places at one time. And you know it's funny, because those songs are such a part of who we are, when I looked out at the crowd -- at the RYMAN or at TOOTSIES -- you could tell that everyone listening was suddenly 17 years old again and right in that moment of being young, being free and being so alive and in love with music.”
The CROSSROADS special is set to debut on CMT in JULY.
