Could CMT Crossroads be the beginning of a long and thriving musical relationship for Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder?

Cody landed an exclusive interview with the superstars before their big CMT Crossroads airs this Friday, and as it turns out, Dierks has been trying to get Ryan’s digits for quite some time.

“That’s what’s so weird about this whole thing is because I was really trying to get his number just to talk about music and to write and just as a fan, you know. Because I love what he does. And then this comes up. It’s just bizarre,” Dierks tells Cody on his tour bus.

The OneRepublic front man adds he would love to get together with Dierks to write in the future.

“In the next 24 hours, I don’t think they’re giving us 24 minutes,” he says. “But yeah, I think it’d be cool if we did something beyond just this.”

Cody's full tour bus interview airs tonight on CMT Radio Live and CMT After MidNite.

Watch CMT Crossroads: Dierks Bentley and OneRepublic Friday, March 21 at 10/9c on CMT.
