For those who missed Dierks Bentley's CMT Unplugged sessions, here are the five songs (Home, a poignant cover of Adele's Set Fire To The Rain, 5150, Am I The Only One, and Up On the Ridge) along with a 5 minute interview where DB talks about his early influences and his first gig.

You may remember DB Congress rep Emily's inside scoop from being on set the day they taped these sessions.

Notice in the "Home" video below, Martin Guitar Ambassador Bentley is playing the newly introduced "HD Dierks Bentley" Custom Signature Artist Edition Guitar!

The Boot had this to say of DB's Adele cover:
"Let's face it, everyone's covering Adele these days ... but perhaps no one more uniquely than Dierks Bentley. The country singer puts his own spin on the British phenom's "Set Fire to the Rain" in an upcoming episode of CMT's "UnpluggedAccompanied by guitars, fiddle, dobro and snare drum, Dierks proves that the lyrics to the chart-topping pop hit fit right in to the country and bluegrass genres, as well.'

The episode will air as a half-hour special Monday, June 25 at 9 pm/CT on CMT and CMT PURE. Fans of CMT’s Facebook page can see the episode in a dedicated tab.
