NEWS POST: Lon Helton Country Air Check

» Orchid Around: Last night (3/2) was CMT Crossroads' first taping at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, and Kenny Chesney and the Steve Miller Band kept it "old school" by following a Grand Ole Opry tradition. The 11-song set included Chesney's "Livin' In Fast Forward" and "I Go Back," Jimmie Vaughn's "Hey-Yeah," and SMB's "Fly Like An Eagle," "Jet Airliner" and "The Joker." Halfway through, Miller suggested, "I think we should do ["Abracadabra"] at Tootsie's after this." Chesney warned the approving crowd, "Y'all are going to be late to work tomorrow if you come to Tootsie's. [But] you can tell we don't work for a living." The trek across the alley yielded performances of "Take The Money And Run," Hank Williams' "Mind Your Own Business" and Stevie Ray Vaughn's "Love Struck Baby." The episode (minus the Tootsie's experience) will premiere in July.
