Bethany Joy Lenz, Star of The WB's �One Tree Hill,� To Share the Stage with Michelle Branch, Gavin DeGraw and Tyler Hilton

Reality meets scripted television for The WB Network. Starting on Monday, February 28, Bethany Joy Lenz, one of the stars of The WB's hit drama ONE TREE HILL, will join top musical acts, Michelle Branch and The Wreckers, Gavin DeGraw and Tyler Hilton, on the 23-city "'One Tree Hill' Concert Tour" presented by mark � the makeup you can buy and sell.

This 23-city tour will also include performances from The Wreckers, the innovative duet comprised of Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Michelle Branch and her longtime friend and fellow musician Jessica Harp. Branch, who has garnered four Top 10 hits and sold over 4 million records, and Harp contributed �The Good Kind� to the CD �Music From The WB Television Series �One Tree Hill.�� The Wreckers also performed the song on the episode that aired February 8th. The Wreckers� debut album will be released this June. Select cities will also feature Gavin DeGraw, who wrote and performed the show's theme song, �I Don't Want To Be,� the #1 hit single from his platinum debut album, �Chariot.�

Additionally, the tour will feature singer/songwriter Tyler Hilton, whose debut Maverick Records release titled �The Tracks of ...� contains such key tracks as �When It Comes� and �Glad.� Hilton, who also has a recurring role as Chris Keller on ONE TREE HILL, will portray a young Elvis Presley in �Walk The Line,� the upcoming film biography of Johnny Cash, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon.

The WB's hit drama ONE TREE HILL airs Tuesdays at 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET on The WB, where Bethany Joy Lenz plays the character Haley. In the current storyline on the show, Haley left her husband Nathan (James Lafferty) to join Chris Keller (Tyler Hilton) and The Wreckers on a concert tour that mirrors the one in real life. The plot turn proved fortuitous, as Lenz is also a musician.
