Luke Bryan-Doobie Brothers CMT Crossroads Review [VIDEO]

I got to see the latest episode of CMT Crossroads on Friday night.  It’s a show that mixes country artists from other genres and there have been some great ones since the show first started: 

  • Jason Aldean with Bryan Adams
  • Trace Adkins with 38 Special
  • Brad Paisley and John Mayer
  • Brooks & Dunn with ZZ Top
  • Taylor Swift with Def Leppard

There have been quite a few of them since the inception of the show but the one I saw Friday night gave me goosebumps.  One of my favorite bands from the 1970’s with one of my favorite country singers – Luke Bryan and the Doobie Brothers. 

The Doobies had so many huge hits during their heyday – “China Grove”, “Black Water”, “Listen To the Music”, “Long Train Runnin”, “Takin’ It To the Streets”, “What A Fool Believes”, “Jesus Is Just Alright”.  The list goes on and on.  I saw them in concert at least half a dozen times and every one of their shows was a greatest hits show. 

I always felt the Doobie Brothers’ mix of voices set them in a category all of their own and on CMT Crossroads they showed they still have the magic.  And Luke Bryan fit right in.  I thought “Black Water” was the highlight of the night…the harmonies were perfect.

The Doobie Brothers added a new dimension when they joined Luke for “Do I”, “Rain Is A Good Thing” and “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)”.  I loved it. 

Just one criticism – the show was too short.  Amazing how quick an hour flies by when you’re enjoying it.
