Dierks Bentley will soon have his own place in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The new exhibit, Every Mile a Memory, opens March 4 and will showcase the singer’s stage clothes, guitars, song manuscripts and more.
The always-reverent country fan says he can hardly believe it.
“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway,” he reflects. “I’m going to have to go down there and see it for myself to really make it sink in.”
The “Somewhere on a Beach” singer will, of course, have the chance to do just that. Dierks will make a special appearance in the Hall’s 800-seat CMA Theater on Saturday, March 12 at 2 p.m. You can access ticket information on the Hall of Fame’s website. If you can’t make it in person, you’ll also be able to watch the interview and performance online.
Dierks Bentley: Every Mile A Memory will run through September 6.
