This whole CMT Crossroads idea is brilliant. Team up two artists from different musical genres, put them in a cage and have them battle to the death!

Oh wait, wrong show. Two artists make beautiful music together and, possibly, achieve world peace in the process. Yeah, that's the one.

The latest CMT Crossroads pairing is rumored to be, though not confirmed, Rascal Flatts and Journey.  Taping is supposed to happen in Nashville the third week of February.

It looks like Rascal Flatts has already started learning some lyrics.
