Is this how you know you’ve made it? When you have one tour bus full of booze and vinyl — and one tour bus full of toys and kiddie pools?
I’ll ask Dierks Bentley next time I see him. Because he recently told People magazine that when his wife Cassidy and their kids — Evalyn, 7, Jordan, 5, and Knox, 2 — come out on the road with him, that’s what life will be like.
It sounds like Bentley’s own bus is where the after, after, after parties happen.
“We have a bar set up called Whiskey Row in every backstage area with a big tent and music,” Bentley said. “It’s open to everyone who comes backstage, and it’s just a fun hang, and that usually spills off into the bus, and we’ll listen to vinyl records on the bus until 2 in the morning.”
But the other bus is another story.
“We’ll grab a second bus and come out, and I’ll load that bus with kiddie pools and remote control cars and chalk and water balloons and rockets to shoot up in the air — everything,” he said. “I live off Red Bull, and it’s the craziest month, but it’s really fun.”
