OFFSTAGE: Dierks Bentley’s Wife Expecting Their Third Child

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Dierks Bentley took to Twitter late Wednesday night (April 24) to get some parenting advice from Tim McGraw. Because Bentley will soon be a father of three, and so is McGraw. “So my wife and I will be changing our family defensive strategy come the fall. switching from MAN-to-MAN to ZONE. #3! advice @thetimmcgraw?,” Bentley wrote. I’m sure McGraw remembers what it’s like when you bring that third baby home. It’s no longer a you-get-that-one and I’ll-get-this-one situation. It’s actually kind of chaotic. But it’s a blessed kind of chaos. McGraw’s advice the next morning was this: “Hey @DierksBentley, with all girls so far you might do best to just join the offense!! … congrats on #3.” Bentley and wife Cassidy haven’t revealed the baby’s gender yet. But boy or girl, I’m sure the whole family — including his big girls Evie, 4, and Jordan, 2 — will welcome baby Bentley with open arms.
