Dierks Bentley Plays Nashville Block Party

Several thousand country music fans gathered Thursday night (Aug. 23) on Demonbreun Street in Nashville to see Dierks Bentley perform as the headliner at a free event billed as the Capitol Pub Crawl. Country Music Hall of Fame member Porter Wagoner greeted the crowd on the outdoor stage prior to Bentley’s appearance near Music Row. The temperature was still in the 90s during Bentley’s set for the block party sponsored by his record label, Capitol Nashville. Earlier in the evening, three other Capitol acts — Eric Church, Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum — performed at various clubs on Demonbreun.
