Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands…

Dierks Bentley is in the thick of his Gravel And Gold Tour, drawing stellar crowds to listen to him belt out some of his older classics and fan favorites from his newest record, Gravel And Gold. 

While touring supports most musicians, what is all work without a little play? While they have been out on the road Dierks and his crew looks like they have been having a horrible time (cough cough… more like, far from it).

From Hot Country Knights appearances and more, you’re sure to get a giggle or two in while Dierks is on the stage or simply from indulging in his social media posts.

Dierks and his band were fed up with not being featured in the backstage décor during their stop in Bristow, Virginia, to play Jiffy Lube Live. So rather than b*tching about it, they gave it a refresh they thought it deserved.

“Backstage at a lot of these places, you see pictures of McGraw and Jason Aldean… guys that have headlined these places and sold them out.

I’ve headlined these places and sold them all out many times, and just not getting the respect I feel like we deserve as a band.

So my buddy Zach Belcher created a few of these beautiful portraits, and if they are not going to hang them up for us, we are going to hang them up ourselves.”

Bentley reveals some beautiful canvases of him and the crew rocking out on stage, and he gets right to work hanging them up in the backstage area.

“Sometimes…you just got to do it yourself.” 

The finishing touch…. a small picture of The Hot Country Knights above the women’s bathroom sign.

Lady killers, those Knights are…

“Gold” star decorating skills.
