Journey, Rascal Flatts to headline CMT Crossroads at Super Bowl XLVII
The wheel in the sky keeps on turning for Journey, at least when it comes to Super Bowl performances. Nah, the '80s arena rockers aren't bringing Don't Stop Believin' to the Super Bowl halftime show. But they will join with country crooners Rascal Flatts for a CMT Crossroads performance the day before the big game in New Orleans.
If you haven't caught a Crossroads performance before, the show has aired on CMT for more a decade and has featured more than 40 musical pairings. Some of the more notable '80s matches have been: Bon Jovi and Sugarland; Def Leppard and Taylor Swift; and The Pretenders and Faith Hill.
CMT announced the pairing on Monday. The show will air Saturday, Feb. 2 at 11 p.m. Eastern time, the night before the game. Fans can register to be a part of CMT Crossroads as NFL Insiders at www.1iota.com.
Journey last played a Super Bowl when the game was last in Tampa before Super Bowl XLIII. Will they ever get the headlining halftime show gig? I think Steve Perry would have to rejoin the lineup for that to happen.
