A new episode of the series “CMT Crossroads” will find the country group Lady Antebellum and singer Stevie Nicks joining forces.

The TV program, which premiered in 2002, puts country singers (or bands) on the same stage with artists from other genres. Past pairings have included Rascal Flatts and the band Journey, Emmylou Harris and Mumford & Sons, and Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler. 

According to CMT, Lady Angebellum (which consists of Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood) and Nicks will share “harmonies and stories” during the program. The episode combining Nicks with Lady Antebellum is scheduled to air Sept. 13.

According to Rolling Stone, Nicks said she often has mixed feelings about others covering her song “Edge of Seventeen” but that she’ll be singing it with Lady Antebellum during the episode.

“I’m proud to share it with Lady Antebellum, because they’re good enough to do it,” the singer said.

During the show, Nicks’ other songs “Rhiannon,” “Landslide,” and “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” will be performed as well as Lady Antebellum’s tunes “Need You Now,” “Golden,” and “Love Don’t Live Here,” according to CMT.

The concert was filmed in Los Angeles.

Nicks, who is a member of the band Fleetwood Mac, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 with the rest of the group and has released seven solo albums. She recently toured with other members of the band – Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham, and John McVie – through North America and the group is embarking on a European and Australian part of the tour later this year.

Lady Antebellum won the Best Country Album Grammy Award for “Own the Night” in 2012 and took the “Record of the Year” and “Song of the Year” titles in 2011. The group will also be embarking on a tour this fall.
