In the country music, Dierks Bentley is about as classy as they come.
This past weekend, right here in Chicago, Tenille Townes wrapped up her part of the Burning Man Tour with Dierks and Jon Pardi, and being the good dude that he is, Dierks couldn’t let her leave empty-handed.
“Last night in Chicago was our official last show of the Burning Man Tour. What a crowd, and what a special night that I truly won’t forget. I still can’t believe this happened. I have been blown away by Dierks Bentley’s generosity all year in the way he and his entire crew have gone over and above for us, and then last night really blew me away. I walked out on stage to sing Different For Girls and he surprised me with the most beautiful Martin guitar I’ve ever seen, down to the detail of snowflakes in the inlay. I can’t wait for “this flat top guitar to have my back in a million bars” ha, and for all the songs I’ll write on here. The story of this guitar and this year of touring will forever mean so much to me. It’s crazy. And what’s crazier, is that inside the guitar was an envelope. And inside the envelope was an incredibly generous donation to Big Hearts For Big Kids, the charity in my hometown supporting our local youth shelter. Dierks, you are an amazing human I am so thankful to get to look up to. Thank you for being who you are and for the front row seat to watch and learn from you out here on the road. What a gift this year has been.”
