Fans Go Crazy for Dierks Bentley’s ‘5-1-5-0′ During ‘CMA Music Festival’ Special
The crowd at LP Field was dedicated to Dierks Bentley, and they showed up with signs and billboards to support the ‘5-1-5-0′ singer during his set at the CMA Music Festival in June. Bentley performed his hit for ABC cameras, and on Monday night, fans who couldn’t get to Nashville got to see the results on the ‘Country’s Night to Rock’ special.
Men and women of all ages threw their arms into the air with each note, while Bentley hopped around on the big stage with an acoustic guitar wrapped around his neck. A giant ‘Tron’-like big screen shouted the lyrics behind the drum riser, while his band and lead guitarist took care of the solos.
It looks like Bentley used the TV opportunity to promote one of his favorite companies, although it’s not clear how he’s connected or under what arrangement he agreed to wear a CH2M Hill t-shirt. On their website, the Colorado business is described as a “global leader in consulting, design, design-build, operations, and program management.” That hardly screams “country music,” but it didn’t slow the audience down.
