Set your dials and mark your calendars because CMT closes out its summer of electrifying music with the announcement of an all-new “Crossroads” mashup featuring multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning pop superstar Meghan Trainor and platinum selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge premiering Monday, September 3 at 10 PM ET/PT. “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,” said Trainor. “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!’’ “I just love Meghan’s sound – she’s got a funky, swaggy thing to her music that no one else is doing,” said Eldredge. “She’s one-of-a-kind and I’m excited to perform with her again, this time on ‘Crossroads.’ We’re going to make everybody feel alive. We’re going to make them feel it in their hearts and their souls. We’re going to bring big vocals and magic moments.” Taped earlier this year, the one-hour show features popular hits including Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” “No Excuses” and current single “Let You Be Right,” from her upcoming album, Treat Myself. The two friends also collaborate on Eldredge’s “Drunk on Your Love,” “Wanna Be That Song,” “Haven’t Met You” and the classic Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton duet, “Islands in the Stream.” The news comes on the heels of impressive ratings growth for CMT which is on track to have its highest rated year since 2014. In F3Q’18, CMT was one of just 10 channels in the Top 50 to show YOY growth in P18-49. CMT has notched 6 consecutive quarters of YOY growth among P18-49, which is the longest active streak in all of television. Grammy-Award winning singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Meghan Trainor emerged with her 2014 breakout single “All About That Bass” and disrupted contemporary music with nostalgic pop beats and powerhouse vocals that delivered a worldwide anthem for female empowerment. Trainor cemented her rising status as one of the most prominent artists in popular music by charting seven multi-platinum singles, releasing two platinum albums, selling out three headline tours, writing multi-platinum hits for top pop and country artists, and receiving countless industry awards and nominations worldwide. She is one of only five female artists to receive a diamond certification for her hit single “All About That Bass” which shares the RIAA Gold & Platinum Awards top honor with only 15 other singles in history. After wrapping up her first season as a panelist on FOX’s hit series THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom, Trainor released her first single “No Excuses” from her highly-anticipated third-studio album, Treat Myself. She followed that up with the irresistible summer smash “Let You Be Right” and returned to television on the second season of THE FOUR. Platinum selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge recently released his brand new single “Love Someone” from his self-titled Continue reading

People Exclusive: Brett Eldredge Premieres ‘Drunk on Your Love’ Video – and Jokes Arresting His Brother Was His Favorite Part (NEW YORK) – After restraining himself in a straitjacket for his previous video, Brett Eldredge was looking for a little more freedom when it came time to shoot the clip for his next single. “I had that crazy idea for ‘Lose My Mind,’ not realizing I painted myself into the corner of having to actually wear the straitjacket for the whole shoot,” the singer-songwriter tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “I wanted to do something different for ‘Drunk on Your Love’ – it’s a lighthearted, fun, feel good song and I wanted the video to reflect that.” Directed by Joel Robertson and shot in Charleston, South Carolina, the clip takes its inspiration from the 1996 film Multiplicity, in which Michael Keaton’s character is cloned until the duplications eventually overwhelm him. “We came up with the idea of multiple versions of me competing against myself for the attention of this beautiful, sweet, girl,” Eldredge, 29, explains. Playing a florist, a cop, a chef, a musician and a taxi driver, the shoot required “a lot of different locations and wardrobe changes.” So which setup was his favorite? The one that featured a cameo from his older brother, Brice. “I loved being the cop and arresting my brother. They told Brice, ‘Act like you’re resisting’ so I got to rough him up a little bit too and give him some jabs back,” he jokes. &q uot;I had to cuff him – I tried to act like I was legitimately arresting somebody, but I could not figure out the handcuffs to save my life. We were all laughing – that was my favorite, being Officer Brett for a minute.” While staging scenes for the video the day prior to the shoot, Eldredge took his florist persona to heart. “I started walking down the street in Charleston and thought, ‘I’m going to see how many people will take a flower if I pass them out.’ We had a ca mera crew with us and they caught up and followed me. I would say 95 percent of people loved getting a flower, whether they knew me or not,” he tells PEOPLE. “It was just crazy to see the reactions on people’s faces – a little thing to make their day better or make them smile. I’m trying to figure out ways to spread the love a bit more this year.” Not everyone was impressed, though. “One girl was on her cellphone and didn’t have time to take a flower. Maybe one day I’ll find her again,” jokes Eldredge. When he’s not busying himself with bouquets, the musician is preparing to hit the road again in support of his sophomore album, Illinois. A European leg this spring will be followed by another summer tour with Keith Urban, and Eldredge is looking forward to both. “I’ve never been to Europe – it’s all brand-new to me. I always hoped Continue reading
