In case you haven’t heard, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member John Mellencamp and Darius Rucker recently taped a CMT Crossroads special together and, yes, the pairing was pretty much perfect.
We have a sneak peek of them performing one of Mellencamp’s classic hits, “Pink Houses.” Rucker nails his part on the politically-charged, patriotic slice of Americana, and Mellencamp is at the top of his game.
Mellencamp first appeared on CMT Crossroads back in 2003 with Kenny Chesney, and he has now teamed up with Martina McBride for “Grandview,” a duet from his new album Sad Clowns & Hillbillies, set for release on April 28.
There are plenty more incredible moments from CMT Crossroads: John Mellencamp and Darius Rucker premiering March 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. I can’t spill all the beans about the performances, but you can enjoy the preview while you wait.
