No Tux, Just T-Shirt, For Dierks Bentley Tonight (May 17)

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Academy of Country Music Awards airs on CBS tonight (May 17) and while it’s a big night for the musicians, not all of them are dressing up for the occasion.

Dierks Bentley – winner of the Top New Artist award last year – will sing his hit, “Lot Of Leaving Left To Do,” but won’t wear anything fancier than a T- shirt during his performance.

Although Bentley has his share of fancy cowboy duds, he admits he prefers to keep it simple when appearing on awards shows “as a quiet rebellion against going Hollywood.”

This year, Bentley isn’t up for any awards, but he doesn’t mind, because as he puts it, “There’s no pressure other than put on a great show.”

Bentley’s latest CD, Modern Day Drifter, was just released and is expected to hit the No. 1 spot in the next couple of weeks.
