Cam Says Taping “CMT Crossroads” With Smokey Robinson Was a “Highlight in My Life”

Cam teamed with Motown legend Smokey Robinson for an episode of CMT Crossroads that was taped on March 6 at the Grand Ole Opry’s Studio A.

As expected, Cam and Smokey joined forces on a number of songs from both of their catalogs, including “Tears of a Clown,” “Cruisin’,” “I Second That Emotion,” “Mayday,” “Burning House” and more.

Cam posted a photo with Smokey on Instagram as the two were backstage at the Opry, saying, in part, “What an absolutely fulfilling moment to meet someone I have admired so long through my speakers, and then have him outshine my (very high) expectations, both as a talent and as a human being. Singing with him tonight will forever be a highlight in my life.

Cam and Smokey’s episode of CMT Crossroads will premiere on March 28 at 10 p.m. ET on CMT.

Pinching myself right now. I’m taping @CMT Crossroads today with the one and only Smokey Robinson!!!! 🤯 I grew up listening to Motown, and this guy has been responsible (as a writer, producer and/or singer) for some of the most iconic songs in the history of recorded music (You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me, I Second that Emotion, Tears of a Clown, My Girl… just google him, the list is insane). His stories are literally the stuff of legends- living round the corner from his pal Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder handing him tracks to write over at the Motown Christmas party… He sees it ALL as a gift, and makes sure to remind me to keep my head on straight. 😉 What an absolutely fulfilling moment to meet someone I have admired so long through my speakers, and then have him outshine my (very high) expectations, both as a talent and as a human being. Singing with him tonight will forever be a highlight in my life. #SmokeyRobinson #Motown
