This episode of CMT Crossroads pairs two of the most electrifying guitarists and performers to hit the stage -- legendary rocker John Fogerty and country star Keith Urban. The show was taped in front of an invitation-only audience in Los Angeles. A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Fogerty is one of America's greatest singer-songwriters and musicians. "Bad Moon Rising," "Who'll Stop the Rain," "Lodi," "Looking out My Back Door," "The Old Man Down the Road," "Proud Mary" and "Centerfield" are just a few of the rock standards he created both as a solo artist and with his seminal '60s and '70s band Creedence Clearwater Revival. Fogerty blended rockabilly, R&B, swamp rock and country music into a potent mix all his own. In addition to his revered work with CCR, he released hit solo albums such as Centerfield (1985), Eye of The Zombie (1986) and the Grammy-winning Blue Moon Swamp (1997). In 2004, he produced and released Deja Vu All Over Again and joined Bruce Springsteen on the Vote for Change tour. Urban won the Country Music Association's male vocalist trophy in 2004. He has been electrifying audiences across the country since his debut release in 1999 and has sold millions of albums. He earned three 2005 Grammy nominations including best male country vocal performance and best country album for Be Here. That album debuted at No.1 on Billboard's country album and went platinum in just six weeks. He recently celebrated his fifth No. 1 single ("Days Go By"), has had eight consecutive Top 5 songs and has performed to packed houses all over the world. The original CMT series, CMT Crossroads, teams country music stars with music stars from other genres -- pop, rock, R&B -- to play together, swap stories and share their common love of music.
