In order to celebrate CMA Award day (tonight!), ABC’s Good Morning America brought their set to the rooftop of Dierks Bentley’s bar ‘Whiskey Row’ in Nashville. Country megastar, Dierks Bentley caught up with GMA correspondents, Lara Spencer and Adam Rippon, both before and after his sensational performance of his hit “Woman, Amen” and his beautiful song, “Living.” Watch his performance by clicking here.
Baring the brisk temperature, Bentley and his band played the heartfelt jam, “Woman Amen” first, in front of an intimate crowd of fans, who gathered on the rooftop. Although he did not need an introduction, Spencer got the crowd pumped stating “Right now here’s Dierks with his number one hit “Woman, Amen” from his album The Mountain.”
The iconic view of Broadway in Nashville acted as the perfect backdrop for the three-time CMA award winner’s performance. As the singer-songwriter entertained the audience, the camera panned to the fans who were all singing along to the beautiful lyrics. Bentley gave country music fans a taste of his highly anticipated performance at the CMA Award show tonight.
Just before his encore performance of “Living”, Spencer had some fun with the recording artist, discussing how the singer makes yearbooks for each and every one of his tours, his upcoming birthday (and giving him Whiskey-infused cupcakes to celebrate), as well as, reminding fans about his upcoming tour, ‘Burning Man Tour’ with special guests, Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes, and Hot Country Knights, slated to begin in Canada this January.
One of the most charming moments in the short interview was when Bentley gave all of the credit to the fans after Spencer asked how he keeps his energy up. The country star shared that he practices staying in the moment, as well as stating, “Oh man, I feed off the crowd so much. Just these fans that came up, some of them have been here sine 1:00 this morning. I take that energy with me all day. It’ll feed me the rest of the day. It’s all about the fans. Especially CMA Awards.” Check out the conversation here.
Just after this sentiment, Bentley and his band took the stage again to close out the segment with “Living”. Stay tuned for another performance from Bentley and many other country music artists tonight at 8 pm on ABC during the CMA Awards, and make sure to follow us on Twitter, as we live-tweet our favorite moments from what is sure to be an epic night of music.
