  1. "Let's see if you know this one," Elton John says modestly, leading into his classic "Tiny Dancer." Of course, the crowd knows it. Less familiar, however, is Ryan Adams, the shy young man who shares vocals with John. Coming out of Raleigh, N.C., Adams works in a country-rock hybrid similar to the Byrds or Gram Parsons. John has called Adams' Heartbreaker "the most beautiful album of 2000," and he credits the work with inspiring him to get back to basics on his album, Songs From the West Coast. The mutual affection between the songwriters comes through during their hour-long Crossroads special. They tease each other in behind-the-scenes interviews and on stage. Even when Adams occasionally misses a note, John maintains his bright, approving smile. Most of the time, their voices and styles blend wonderfully, especially on the country classic "He'll Have to Go."
