Watch the Full Episode: @DierksBentley and @OneRepublic CMT Crossroads

What happens when you pair up OneRepublic and Dierks Bentley? I’d say this is pure magic. Leadman of OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder has written his way around the pop world including Adele‘s ‘Turning Tables’. You might be surprised to hear that there is a little Nashville in the frontman’s bones – and that’s more than just a Carrie Underwood co-write. It is music city, after all! Tedder honed in on his songwriting skills and was offered a few deals to write in Nashville, but turned them down. He stayed with OneRepublic to work on the bands sound – with three albums all gold or platinum status, I would say that was a great choice. Pair ’em up with Dierks Bentley and this is what you get:

Good Life
Up On The Ridge
I Hold On
Counting Stars
I Lived
Pride (In The Name Of Love)

Check out my review of Dierks Bentley’s new album, Riser.
