Hey, Hey, Nickelback and Hardy Wanna Be Rockstars on ‘CMT Crossroads’

The Canadian hard-rockers and the country hard-rocker team up for ‘Save Me,’ ‘Truck Bed,’ and more on the CMT performance series

There may be no more natural pairing for CMT Crossroads than Nickelback and Hardy. Both appeal to country and rock audiences, both worked with producer Joey Moi, and both have a song called “Rockstar.” On April 6, they’ll mash up their respective styles — and their “Rockstar” singles — for an episode of CMT’s crossover performance series.

Recorded in Nashville earlier in March, the episode features Hardy and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger trading verses on Nickelback’s “Save Me” and “Animals,” and Hardy hits “Truck Bed” and “Give Heaven Some Hell.”

CMT Crossroads: Nickelback & Hardy premieres Saturday, April 6, at 8 p.m./ET and is part of the networks’ CMT Music Awards weekend programming block. On Friday, a new episode of CMT Storytellers premieres with Little Big Town, featuring performances of hits like “Better Man,” “Boondocks,” and “Girl Crush.” A CMT Music Awards-themed installment of the weekly music video countdown show, CMT Hot 20 Countdown, airs Saturday morning. On Sunday, a live CMT Awards red-carpet special kicks off at 7 p.m./ET.
