Avetts, Travis' 'CMT Crossroads' encore

Get More:
If you were too busy nursing a turkey hangover or recovering from your Black Friday battle to catch North Carolinians Randy Travis and the Avett Brothers sharing the stage on "CMT's Crossroads'" latest episode Friday you can catch the entire episode Sunday morning at 10 a.m. EST. But you can also watch the full episode here on the network's website.

My traditional country music loving babysitter, who watched it first, gave it a big thumbs up. I'm a sucker for the Avetts' "Murder in the City" myself and it's interesting to hear Travis' subtle twist on what I consider one of the group's finest tracks.

Aside from performances of songs like "January Wedding," "Three Wooden Crosses," and the obligatory "Forever and Ever Amen," the episode includes rehearsal footage as well as Travis sitting down and discussing topics like North Carolina's musical heritage and marriage with the core trio of Seth and Scott Avett and Bob Crawford.
