I still listen often to Blair and Dierks' interview from May 6, 2008, right after he released his greatest hits CD - "Every Mile A Memory 2003-2008." What a great conversation! They talked about everything -- allergies, Tour Bus gas prices ($6,000 a day!), Big White, Wife-Cassidy's Prius, playing Lollapalooza, and Will Ferrel movies ( I was the first person to bring Dierks the "Blades of Glory" DVD the following week). Here's an excerpt from that 2008 interview:
Blair: "I love speaking with you. You're such a fun interview because it's basically like just talking to an old friend. Are you surprised when you say something off the cuff and it comes back to you many interviews later?"
Dierks: "Yeah it gets twisted sometimes. A, I talk to fast and B, I talk about anything. It's always wide-open."
The best part is, they talked to Dierks this morning about his new album's personal sound and lyrics (Riser), his dog Jake's appearance on The View and life on tour this summer! Check out the audio HERE!
