Why Dierks Bentley Can’t Look His Fans in the Eyes

He Might Want to Close His Eyes for This

Dierks Bentley knows he has a job to do.

“You can’t forget what you’re there to do on a Friday, Saturday night,” Bentley told Radio.com. “People have worked hard all week. They’re spending money for your show. You’re there to have a good time and not get too inside yourself.”

Then again, he also has some songs in his set list that take him very much inside himself.

“There’s times I look at someone in the crowd, and I see someone cry or get emotional, and I have to zone away or close my eyes so I can finish the song without going there, as well,” he said of some of the deeper, personal songs from his nearly 12 years in the business.

Especially some of his newer, heavier songs.
