Dierks Bentley surprised fans in Nashville yesterday (Monday, November 14th) by announcing early in the day on Instagram that he was playing a show last night at a small bar called Legends on the city's famed Lower Broadway. The singer began teasing the show with a series of videos on Instagram on Sunday (November 13th). Dierks said it was a way for him and his band to get back to playing in a more intimate setting. He told fans, "I want to reconnect with the vibe of Lower Broadway cause to me that's really where Nashville lives."
Dierks said he and his band love "old school country," which they proved during their show of strictly cover songs. Cole Swindell turned up to perform a few of his country favorites, including Joe Diffie's "John Deere Green" and Randy Travis' "Forever And Ever Amen."
Dierks has been playing arenas and amphitheaters for the past several months on the Somewhere On A Beach tour, and the next time he plays in Nashville it will be to headline at the city's Bridgestone Arena in January.
