Watch Chris Young & Gavin DeGraw Team Up for “I Don’t Want to Be” at Upcoming “CMT Crossroads”

Watch Chris Young & Gavin DeGraw Team Up for “I Don’t Want to Be” at Upcoming “CMT Crossroads”

Chris Young joined forces with Gavin DeGraw at The Factory in Franklin, Tenn., on Nov. 26 to tape a new episode of CMT Crossroads that will air on Dec. 13 at 9 p.m. CT.

The cross-genre stars collaborated on each other’s hits, share stories and more. While Chris, 34, has scored 10 No. 1 hits on the country charts since dropping his self-titled debut album in 2006, Gavin, 42, has found success on the pop charts with hits like “I Don’t Want to Be,” “Not Over You” and more.

The one-hour special features the artists collaborating on Gavin’s “I Don’t Want to Be,” “Not Over You,” “Soldier,” and “Sweeter,” along with Chris’ “Drowning,” “I’m Comin’ Over,” “Raised on Country,” and “Hangin’ On.” The two also cover Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed.”

“I met Chris at a barroom in Nashville a couple years back and we hit it off right away,” says Gavin. “He’s a bar guy, like me. We all love country music, and the best thing about country is the feeling of community around it. Chris embodies that sense of community, not only in his music, but in real life as well. That’s why I’m excited to be part of Crossroads with him.”

“I’ve been a fan of Gavin’s songwriting and music for a lot of years and we’ve become friends since he’s moved to Nashville so teaming up for Crossroads was pretty much a no-brainer,” says Chris. “We had a lot of fun on stage together collaborating on each other’s hits and stretching beyond what people might expect to hear from us.”
