in New Orleans, Louisiana pitting
brother against brother coaches in this sports spectacular.
Ironically, during Super Bowl XLVII weekend on Saturday, February 2, 2013
"CMT Crossroads," Super Bowl XLVII Concert Series brings together
brother for brother music concert.
In Super Bowl XLVII, head coaches of the Baltimore Ravens' John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers' Jim Harbaugh will make a first in Super Bowl history. There has never been two head coaches locked in a brother versus brother showdown for the Lombardi Trophy. It won’t be a pretty sight.
Whether you are wearing the Baltimore Ravens' purple and black or the San Francisco 49’ers' red and gold for Super Bowl XLVII, you’ll witness an awesome matchup of the best of great coaches and teams on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3rd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
With all this tension and rivalry building up to Super Bowl XLVIL, you’re going to need a heavy dose of fun on Saturday night, before the family feud. And, what soothes the savage beast, worried about his team (or his bets?) Music, of course! So it’s "CMT Crossroads," Super Bowl XLVII Concert Series to the rescue with its headliner, Rascal Flatts and 1970's superstar rockers, Journey with one spectacular concert in The Sugar Mill, located at 1021 Convention Center Boulevard in New Orleans How ironic, that instead of brother against brother, when it comes to music it’s brother for brother. Plus it hurts a lot less (depending on the lyrics or where you’re playing,) and protective padding is not required.
At the "CMT Crossroads," Super Bowl XLVII Concert Series you will have a chance to win prizes and meet the members of Rascal Flatts and Journey. The doors of The Sugar Mill will open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert begins at 10:00 p.m. CST. Want to be part of the audience? Fans can register to be part of the show at 1iota.com.
"CMT Crossroads," Super Bowl XLVII Concert Series will also cast 300 die-hard fans for the Rascal Flatts and Journey Concert to be in the pit, closest to the stage. Here is another chance to wave to your jealous friends, rival fans and your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend who dumped you.

This is the second time that Rascal Flatts and Journey have shared a stage. In June 2012, Rascal Flatts closed the CMT Music Awards by inviting Journey to perform their hit "Don't Stop Believin'" with them on stage to a live audience at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Since their musical debut in 2001, Rascal Flatts has become the decade’s most-awarded group in contemporary country, earning over 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, American Country Music, American Music Awards, Country Music Association, People's Choice Awards and more and has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads and delivered 14 number one singles to the top of the charts. The group was last in Louisiana for a slot at the 2012 Bayou Country Superfest. Rascal Flatts is one of the hottest-selling acts on tour, in any genre, they’ve sold over 7 million concert tickets, and counting.
Rascal Flatts' eighth studio album, Changed, was released on April 3, 2012. It was produced by Dann Huff and Rascal Flatts. The first single from the album, "Banjo", reached number one on the Billboard Country Songs chart. It became their 12th number one hit on that chart. The second single off the album, "Come Wake Me Up", reached the top five on the Country Airplay chart. The third single from the new album is the title track, "Changed".
Lionheart Music Group, a Swedish independent company within the Universal Music Group, released Rascal Flatts' album, Changed, on January 2, 2013 in Sweden. Earlier, Rascal Flatts re-recorded their hit "Come Wake Me Up" with Swedish country/pop female singer, Jill Johnson, who is also under Lionheart Music Group, as a duet version on Johnson's new album, A Woman Can Change Her Mind. The duet version was also released as a digital download internationally on November 16, 2012. The record label also released their former album, Nothing Like This, on January 23, 2013.
Since Journey’s formation in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1973, Journey has charted with 19 top 40 singles and 25 gold and platinum albums, delivering such classic-rock radio mainstays as "Don't Stop Believin'" and “Any Way You Want It.” After the departure of lead singer Steve Perry in the late 90’s, several substitutes have taken on Journey’s challenging vocals; famously, since 2007, by Filipino singer Arnel Pineda, the former front man of a Journey cover band who original Journey guitarist Neal Schon discovered via YouTube. The "CMT Crossroads," Super Bowl XLVII Concert Series will be Journey’s second Super Bowl appearance. The band also performed in 2009, at the NFL Tailgate Party in Tampa for Super Bowl XLIII.
