Dierks Bentley Gives Guitar to Little Boy in Adorable Concert Moment [Watch]

To say Dierks Bentley has a generous heart is an understatement. After all, there aren’t many country stars who would hand a guitar over to a 6-year-old kid during a live concert … but Bentley did just that.

It happened Monday evening (Sept. 1) in Chicago, where Bentley was opening for Luke Bryan at Soldier Field. A lucky little boy named Henry was perched above the crowd on someone’s shoulders, enjoying the show, when all of a sudden, Bentley walked over, handed him a bright red electric guitar and reached his fist out for a pound.

“Last night this little dude got @brianlayson’s guitar!” Bentley shared on social media. The singer’s guitarist even chimed in, saying, “Was a cool moment … rock on little dude!”

Even more special, it was apparently Henry’s birthday. “My girlfriend has Henry on her shoulders and we helped pull the guitar down to him!!!” a commenter writes. “The concert was his 6th birthday present from his mom and dad.”

What a memorable birthday — and gift — for Henry! A dad to three kiddos himself, Bentley obviously has a soft spot for little ones.

Perhaps there will be more surprises like this on his Riser Tour; Bentley just announced a second leg, kicking off Oct. 2 with Randy Houser and Eric Paslay in tow.
