Country favorite Dierks Bentley and Grammy-nominated pop-rock act OneRepublic are meeting in the middle for the newest installment of CMT Crossroads.
Dierks will release his newest album, Riser, on Feb. 25. The project is the first since the passing of his father and the birth of his son and marks an evolution in his career as both a singer and songwriter. He also hits the road May 9 on the Riser Tour with Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi.
OneRepublic released their debut album, Dreaming Out Loud, which included the hit single “Apologize,” in 2007. They have since released two more albums and are planning to tour the U.S. this summer.
The popular CMT series pairs country artists and entertainers from the worlds of rock and pop music for a special evening of collaborations and fun. Previous Crossroads specials have featured Keith Urban with John Mayer, Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks and Rascal Flatts with Journey, among others.
CMT Crossroads: OneRepublic and Dierks Bentley will premiere in March.
