Big CMT Debut For "A Ride Back Home" Video

The video for "A Ride Back Home," the latest single from "Life, Death, Love & Freedom," will premiere as a Top 20 extra this Fri./Sat./Sun. on CMT's Top 20 Countdown show. The program will also feature an interview by Top 20 Countdown Host Lance Smith with JM and Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild (who guests in the video).

The show will run at 11 AM ET/PT on Friday and Saturday, and 11:30 AM ET/PT on Sunday.

While in Nashville, John and Karen also taped an interview with CMT's Cody Alan for the syndicated radio show CMT Radio Live, which will soon air nationwide. The interview includes details on the summer tour with Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, as well as information about his forthcoming box set.

Additionally, CMT Radio Network did a separate radio interview with John that will be edited into sound bites for use on the network's radio programming, which is sourced to approximately 100 stations, and for the CMT web site. Future screenings of the video on CMT will include commentary by John and Karen in a "pop-up video" format as part of their Video Replay segments.
