CMT Crossroads: Dierks Bentley & OneRepublic

Backstage With Paul: A Sold Out Night With O.A.R.

In March of 2003, I got a call from a publicist from Lave Records, asking me if I wanted to do a shoot with a band she worked with. They were called O.A.R., and they were playing at the Aragon Ballroom. I had never heard of them, and figured that they were the opening act. […]
