John Fogerty and Keith Urban Unite for 'CMT CROSSROADS'

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 14 -- The latest episode of the critically acclaimed series CMT CROSSROADS pairs up two of the most electrifying guitarists and performers to hit the stage - legendary rocker John Fogerty and country superstar and three-time 2005 Grammy nominee Keith Urban. The one-hour CMT CROSSROADS will be taped in front of an invitation-only audience in Los Angeles and is slated to premiere Saturday, Feb. 19 at 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT* on CMT. The original CMT series, CMT CROSSROADS, teams-up country music stars with music stars from other genres - pop, rock, R&B - to play together, swap stories, and share their common love of music.

A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, John Fogerty is one of America's greatest singer/songwriters and musicians. "Bad Moon Rising," "Who'll Stop The Rain," "Lodi," "Looking Out My Back Door," "The Old Man Down The Road," "Proud Mary" and "Centerfield" are just a few of the rock standards Fogerty created both as a solo artist and with his seminal 60s and 70s band Creedence Clearwater Revival. Fogerty blended rockabilly, R&B, swamp rock and country music into a potent mix all his own. In addition to his revered work with CCR, Fogerty released hit solo albums such as "Centerfield" (1985), "Eye of The Zombie" (1986) and the Grammy-winning "Blue Moon Swamp" (1997). In September 2004 Fogerty produced and released "Deja Vu All Over Again," had a hit single with the title track, joined Bruce Springsteen on the Vote For Change tour and drew praise from the media for his fall headlining tour.

Keith Urban is the Country Music Association's reigning "Male Vocalist of the Year." He has been electrifying audiences across the country since his debut release in 1999 and since then has sold millions of albums. Urban is a three-time 2005 Grammy nominee including "Best Male Country Vocal Performance" and "Best Country Album" for his latest album, "Be Here," which debuted at No.1 on Billboard's Country Album Chart (No. 3 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart) and went platinum in just six weeks. He recently celebrated his fifth No. 1 single ("Days Go By"), has had eight consecutive Top 5 songs and has performed to packed houses all over the world.

Other CMT CROSSROADS episodes have featured Elvis Costello and Lucinda Williams; Kid Rock and Hank Williams Jr.; ZZ Top and Brooks & Dunn; Elton John and Ryan Adams; Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson; James Taylor and the Dixie Chicks; Ray Charles and Travis Tritt; John Mellencamp and Kenny Chesney; Melissa Etheridge and Dolly Parton; Pat Benatar and Martina McBride; Dave Matthews and Emmylou Harris; a live NFL Super Bowl CROSSROADS special featuring Toby Keith performing with Willie Nelson, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Sammy Hagar, Run DMC's Darryl McDaniels, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, Ted Nugent and jazz musician Wayman Tisdale; John Mayer and Brad Paisley; Heart and Wynonna; and Lynyrd Skynyrd and Montgomery Gentry.
