OneRepublic Goes Country with Dierks Bentley on CMT Crossroads [VIDEO]
CMT loves to throw together artists on their series “Crossroads.” Tonight’s episode features OneRepublic and Dierks Bentley. See what they came up with.
OneRepublic is sitting pretty with their smash hit “Counting Stars.” So why not get one of country music’s biggest stars to sing it with you? Watch as Ryan Tedder and Dierks Bentley swap vocals.
The two acts also perform a cover of U2′s “Pride (in the Name of Love).” Tedder is currently producing U2′s new album. Bentley and Tedder were planning on covering Avicii’s “Hey Brother”, but the two couldn’t stop laughing during the rehearsals.
Tedder kept switching up the lyrics. Instead of the line “Hey brother, do you still believe in one another?”, he would sing “Hey brother, did you know your sister is your mother?”
“Crossroads” airs tonight at 9 p.m. on CMT.
