NASHVILLE – May 2, 2007 – CMT will host the exclusive on-air and wireless premieres of Bon Jovi’s new video, “(You Want To) Make A Memory,” on Thursday, May 3.

Bon Jovi performed their new Nashville-inspired single first on the recent 2007 CMT MUSIC AWARDS to a live television audience. In 2006, Bon Jovi enjoyed their first No. 1 country hit with “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” a duet with Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles, which was the first time a rock band ever reached that plateau. The bands first performed together on a 2005 episode of CMT’s critically-acclaimed series, CMT CROSSROADS. Bon Jovi’s new studio album “Lost Highway,” recorded in Nashville, is due in stores June 19.
