ABOUT THIS SPOT: I served primarily as Writer/Producer on this spot, which was created to promote CMT Crossroads: Willie Nelson & Friends Live from Third Man Records which aired on the channel in June 2013. CMT Crossroads remains one of my favorite and longest-running series on CMT, typically pairing a traditional or mainstream country artist with artists outside the genre. In this case, Willie Nelson did the picking as the show celebrated him on his 80th birthday. I was provided with all of the raw footage of this show and narrowed down my favorite moments into this piece (as well as into an Integration w/ Wendys), and wrote the generally sparse VO to focus on the great line-up of artists who were also featured in the show.
