CMT Crossroads: Alicia Keys and Maren Morris will be taped in Nashville to air Dec. 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Alicia Keys is a 15-time Grammy winner, an accomplished actress, a New York Times best-selling author, an entrepreneur and a powerful force in the world of activism. In May, she released “In Common,” a song from her sixth studio album, due out later this year on RCA Records.
Keys will join Blake Shelton, Miley Cyrus and Adam Levine on the judges’ panel of NBC’s The Voice when the show’s 11th season premieres on Sept. 19.
In September 2014, Keys launched We Are Here, a movement empowering the global community around a host of issues and initiatives to build a better world where all people are heard, respected, equal and treated with dignity. Keys also co-founded Keep a Child Alive and serves as global ambassador for the organization.
At age 26, Maren Morris has quickly established her career through vocal stylings that reflect her country, soul and pop influences. The Arlington, Texas, native was named as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country as well as a CMT Listen Up Artist of 2016, a VEVO Discover Artist, a SiriusXM “Artist to Watch in 2016” and one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.”
After Columbia Nashville released Morris’ major label debut, Hero, in June, it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s country albums chart and at No. 5 on Billboard’s all-genres Top 200 chart. The album’s debut single, “My Church,” set a record at country radio by having the most chart reporting stations to play a debut single by a country artist and was certified platinum by the RIAA.
Continuing her success with the latest single, “80s Mercedes,” Morris is currently on Keith Urban’s Ripcord World Tour in addition to her own headlining dates.
