Dierks Bentley And Daughter Evie Sing Together On Legendary Stage [VIDEO]
Dierks Bentley played the Ryman Auditorium last night as part of his ‘Home’ tour and brought along a special guest, his three year old daughter Evie. The pair sang a duet of “I’m Thinking of You” off of his most recent album ‘Home’.
This was Dierks’ first time headlining at the Ryman and was also the second last show to ever be played on that stage before it is replaced next week.
The current Ryman stage was installed in 1951 and is only the second floor in it’s 120 year history. The final show on this floor is tonight featuring Keith Urban in his first full concert since returning from vocal rest along with The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Pride and other special guests. The first show on the new stage will be February 20th with The Band Perry.
To allow future artists to have a connection with Ryman history, an 18 inch strip of the old floor will grace the front edge of the new stage so that artists can stand where so many legends have before them.
Earlier in the week, Dierks joked on his twitter page that he may pry off a floorboard to hang in his bus.
Ironically, the only concert that I have ever been to at the Ryman Auditorium also featured a father-daughter duet and was also his first show as a headliner as Gary Allan brought out his 16 year old daughter Dallas and performed ‘The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down’ by The Band. This was a spine tingling performance, not just because of the show, but also the venue. I’m sure Dierks and Evie’s performance gave everyone in attendance goosebumps.
