Dierks Bentley has been a fixture in the country music scene for a while, even before he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry ten years ago. Since then, his bluegrass-country sound has matured, but it still attracts the same legions of fans, especially those young women in white tank tops he inspired when he first came on the scene. Those young women are joined by crowds of bros in flag-print tanks, girls in sundresses, and a whole lot of cowboy boots at a Dierks Bentley show. His shows are decidedly country-tinged affairs. He often appears to fanfare, after the blast of fireworks-style pyrotechnics, he’ll appear standing on a podium, fist raised. He’s good to his fans, encouraging sing alongs and audience participation. Some shows feature a segment where he’ll invite an audience member to chug a beer on stage with him. He’s a cheeky performer, often crowd surfing the front rows, even when security warns him against it. It’s like he’s got this secret conspiratorial agreement with the audience where they both know they’re getting in trouble tonight. Dierks Bentley makes a point of showing his audiences a good time, whether it’s shotgunning a beer, playing the hits, or breaking the rules just so everyone’s having fun.
