Veteran rocker Bob Seger and country king Jason Aldean are teaming up for an episode of U.S. cable Tv series Cmt Crossroads.

The odd couple will hit the stage together for the series, in which country acts perform with artists from another music genre, next week (28Oct14) - and their night to remember will air on the Cmt network later this year.

Seger and Aldean have become friends in recent months and the 69-year-old Silver Bullet Band leader was spotted backstage at the country star's Concert for the Cure gig in Detroit, Michigan on 11 October (14).

Ironically, Aldean hit the top of the U.S. charts with his new album Old Boots, New Dirt last week (15Oct14) and Seger debuted what could be his final album, Ride Out, at number three on Wednesday (22Oct14).
