NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Pretenders and Faith Hill are teaming up for live episode of “CMT Crossroads.”

The show will take place during the NFL Pepsi Super Bowl Fan Jam on Feb. 5 from Grand Prairie, Texas, the night before the Super Bowl.

This will be just the second live “CMT Crossroads.” The show pairs country music stars with acts from other genres. The mashup often yields interesting results.

Two of music’s most successful women will be on display during the broadcast. Chrissie Hynde formed The Pretenders more than 30 years ago and the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.

Hill is a five-time Grammy-winning country singer who is familiar to football fans as the voice of NBC’s Sunday Night Football. This will be her first “Crossroads” appearance.
