Ever heard Dierks Bentley sing a Waylon Jennings song live in concert? I have, and I can tell you D's voice fits perfectly into the Waylon groove. So much so that he's recorded a song for a tribute album. He usually covers Ain't Livin' Long Like This, but decided on Lonesome, Or'nry and Mean for the tribute song.
Dierks Bentley Joins Friends on Waylon Jennings Tribute Album
A few good ole boys and girls are coming together to record a tribute album to the late Waylon Jennings. Jessi Colter, Waylon's widow, says she's already heard some of the tracks and promises, "It's going to be an incredible album. It's a very organic, heartfelt tribute, unlike any other tribute album."Among the artists who've contributed is Dierks Bentley.
Jessi raves about Dierks' take on 'Lonesome, Or'nry and Mean,' saying, "He did a real gravely voice version that is to die for. I called him and said 'Dierks, you just really broke my heart singing this song.'"
Jessi and Dierks, who are both from Arizona, have also struck up a friendship. She recently participated in Dierks' Miles for Kids motorcycle ride in Phoenix.
