Sneak Peek: Dierks Bentley’s Instant Jam Performance

Get "Drunk on a Plane" Before Concert Special Premieres May 28 on CMT

Wherever Dierks Bentley goes, it’s a party.

The singer recently hit the stage at the International in Knoxville, Tennessee, for a surprise show where fans showed up and showed out like champs.

It’s all a part of CMT’s Instant Jam series, a lineup of free pop-up performances from country’s biggest stars. Taking place on short notice in more smaller venues, it gives fans the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite artists.

“That was honestly hands down, Top 5 show … 15 years of my life … maybe No. 1. It was unbelievable,” Bentley told the cameras as he walked offstage from the show.

Instant Jam: Dierks Bentley airs May 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
