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.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”
