Dierks Bentley Had Some Surprises Up His Sleeve This Weekend

Dierks Bentley surprised the crowd with some very special guests when he performed in Nashville on Friday night.

His 90s cover band known as Hot Country Knights got the night started with Thomas Rhett joining in disguise as well.

Since they are a 90s band it’s only fitting that they did “That Ain’t My Truck,” made famous by his father, Rhett Akins in the 90s.

Keith Urban came out next to join Dierks on “The Mountain.”

then Miranda Lambert walked out to join Keith and Dierks on several classic country songs.

So how did he get them both to come?  He revealed that he texted Keith at the last minute, expecting him to say no and then happened to run into Miranda, and her new husband while they were taking a walk and she agreed to come as well.

what can I say about these two and this moment here tonight at Bridgestone Arena, other than it’s just good to have pals. Someone like @keithurban, who I sent a text to two days ago that literally started with “I hate myself for even texting this, so please just say no, but I’m playing Bridgestone tomorrow night…..” And @mirandalambert, who who I randomly bumped into yesterday in nashville, who asked about the show and said she and her husband were thinking about coming down. A lot of laughs in the dressing room 20 minutes before my band and I walked on stage, working something up. The best. Heart full of grateful for everyone that made tonight the night that it was, but these two are at the top. 🙏 #burningmantour #nashville
