Shelton & Loggins Will Open CMA's
Blake Shelton has invited Kenny Loggins to join him for a performance of “Footloose” as the opening song on the CMA Awards next Wednesday night. Blake recorded a version of the classic song, originally done by Kenny, for the Footloose movie remake, released last month. Producers first pitched another song to Blake for the soundtrack, but Blake had already made up his mind. “I wanted to do ‘Footloose’ or I wasn’t gonna be a part of the soundtrack, you know? And, it wasn’t like, ‘By God...’ I just said, that’s the only one I’d be interested in doin’.” The 45th Annual CMA Awards air Wednesday, November 9th at 8PM Eastern on ABC.
