Guess Who Brantley Gilbert Is Uniting With For CMT ‘Crossroads’….

This is going to be awesome.

Whenever anyone asks country singer Brantley Gilbert about who influenced his music, Lynyrd Skynyrd is the first name that comes to his mind.FotorCreated

“There’s something about their music that just drew me in,” says the hit-maker.

So when CMT asked Gilbert who he’d like to pair up with for an episode of CMT Crossroads, the Southern-rock pioneers were the obvious choice.

The two acts will shoot their episode of Crossroads June 5 in Franklin, Tenn. It will premiere June 27 (10 p.m. ET/PT, CMT).
