The one-hour special was taped before an invitation only audience in Nashville and features Evans' hits including "I Could Not Ask For More" and her new single "Some Things Never Change," as well as the Maroon 5 hits "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved."
"I've been excited to do Crossroads since CMT first started the show," said Evans. "When you are a fan of someone, like I am of Maroon 5 and then you hear them singing and playing your music - it is such an honor. Adam and I had such great chemistry, and this was an absolutely amazing experience."
Evans' second single, "Some Things Never Change," from her recent "Greatest Hits" album is climbing the country radio charts. The song explores the various ways that love is displayed and was co-written by Evans, her brother Matt Evans, Hillary Lindsay and John Shanks.
