Whoever over at CMT /Viacom that dreamed up the idea of a collaboration of Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic is a genius. I’ve been so excited and waiting this since they announced it. BTW we’re still giving away autographed copies of Dierks NEW Album Riser here on CMchatLIVE.com compliments of his label UMG Nashville. Gotta love them!
Grammy-nominated group OneRepublic shares the stage with fellow Grammy nominee Dierks Bentley for a night of music you won’t soon forget. Tune in to their edition of CMT Crossroads as they collaborate on each other’s tunes, including music from Bentley’s brand new album Riser and OneRepublic’s latest album, Native. In addition, they’ll trade stories from their lives and careers.
Who would you love to see on a CMT Crossroads?
OneRepublic dominated both digital sales and airplay with their debut album, Dreaming Out, in 2007 due mainly to the success of the first single, “Apologize”. They second album released in 2009, Waking Up, produced 3 singles. Native, the third, debuted at #4 on Billboard Top 200 and had a #1 single with “Counting Stars”. The band will begin a US tour this summer.
Dierks Bentley may just be the hardest working guy in the business right now. His new album, Riser, will debut on February 25. This highly anticipated release is said to be fueled with emotion given its the first release since the death of his father and birth of his son. He already teased the track list to eager fans and the debut single, “I Hold On”, written by Dierks Bentley and Brett James, is rapidly climbing country airplay charts. Dierks also announced that he will be headlining his Riser tour which kicks off on May 9 in Charlotte.
