Dierks Bentley to Take Part in the CMA Songwriters Series
Dierks Bentley will be joining Jim Beavers (“Felt Good On My Lips” recorded by Tim McGraw), Jaren Johnston (“You Gonna Fly” recorded by Keith Urban), and Bob DiPiero (“You Can’t Take the Honky Tonk Out of the Girl” recorded by Brooks & Dunn) at the CMA Songwriters Series taking place on September 13, 2012 at New York City’s Joe’s Pub. DiPiero is hosting the series which gives music fans a look behind the scenes at the stories that inspired some well-known songs.
“The CMA Songwriter series is a really cool gig,” said Bentley. “Joe’s Pub is so intimate and the audience is a huge part of those shows because they’re so close. It’s like everybody in the room is in on a secret or something. You’ve got four guys with guitars, telling stories and drinking whiskey…anything can happen!”
