Kesha is digging back into her country roots — the star is set to share the stage with Old Crow Medicine Show for an all-new CMT Crossroads collaboration.

The hour-long concert special will feature special performances of both artists’ biggest hits, including tracks from Kesha’s No. 1 album Rainbow and Old Crow Medicine Show’s iconic archive that spans nearly two decades.

“I grew up on country music. It was the first music I sang, listened to and wrote as a child, and I’m especially stoked to be collaborating with Old Crow Medicine Show,” says Kesha. “I’ve always admired early country artists such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Gram Parsons, and Loretta Lynn, and the outlaw attitude of some of those early country artists who helped create rock and roll. To me, Old Crow Medicine Show epitomizes that attitude and wildness while also being amazing songwriters and performers.”

“Old Crow is so excited to be working with Kesha on this project,” says band member Ketch Secor. “Through our nearly 20 years of performing together our band has enjoyed many different kinds of musical collaborations, but this will be our first time working together with a pop star. We love Kesha’s style and we’re all looking forward to what we’ll come up with together.”

Kesha and Old Crow Medicine Show’s show-stopping collaboration premieres Dec. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
