Country Star Dierks Bentley Says He Has Never Had A Bad Show

Dierks Bentley has never had a bad gig.

Billboard interviewed the country star about his rocky path to becoming a superstar.

On entering the music business:

“I didn’t see it ever working out for me. I don’t wear tight, starched jeans. I don’t have a big belt buckle and a cowboy hat. And I’ve got a weird name.”

On struggling with his career after his hit ‘Sideways’ in 2009:

“He was opening for Brad Paisley, one of several newer singers who had pushed past Bentley in their ascent. He and his wife, Cassidy, had a baby who was less than a year old. Bentley was trying to become a headliner, and it wasn’t working. And Nashville was now full of guys doing songs about beer and pretty girls.”

On his different types of songs:

“I have these songs I can relate to, because they’re all a piece of my life. Maybe that’s why I’ve never had a bad show..Or maybe it’s the alcohol.”
