The Band Perry and Dierks Bentley Open 2012 Grammy Nominations Concert With Johnny Cash Tribute
The Band Perry and Dierks Bentley kicked off the 2012 Grammy Nominations Concert live from Nashville with a rollicking tribute to the legendary Man in Black, Johnny Cash. They delivered a rocking version of the classic hit ‘Jackson.’
Bentley and Kimberly Perry proved a great vocal pairing, with his rough-and-ready vocals a great match for Cash, and her spirited and saucy delivery a fitting tribute to June Carter Cash. Reid and Neil Perry chimed in with some crystal-clear harmonies and instrumental support.
Bentley is no stranger to the music of Johnny Cash; he often covers ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ in his live show, and recorded the tune with the Grascals.
