Dierks Bentley + Brothers Osborne’s ‘Burning Man’ Named 2019 ACM Music Event of the Year
"Burning Man," a hit Dierks Bentley song featuring Brothers Osborne, has just been named Music Event of the Year winner at the 2019 ACM Awards. The award was announced before the start of the 2019 ACM Awards.
The ACM Twitter page also announced the win and within a few minutes, John and TJ Osborne had responded.
"Massive moment!!!" they write. "Thanks to the @ACMawards for the continued love & support and thanks to @DierksBentley for asking us to be a part of a such great song. If we didn’t have to perform with @MarenMorris tonight we’d be celebrating already!"
