"It's an honor and a privilege to be onboard for a CMT CROSSROADS episode," said Walsh. "I've hand-picked some old friends and some new friends and we're going to make sure it's a special evening. Nothing beats country music with a little rock & roll sprinkled on top. We're going to mix up a batch and see what happens. I got a real good feeling about it. Nashville, here we come!"

Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than three decades with such classics as "Funk #49," "Walk Away," "Life's Been Good," and "Ordinary Average Guy."
