Dierks Bentley hired two new guitarist to perform with him last night.

When I first read that Tweet, I thought--what the heck happened to Robbie and Rod? Not to worry, just for one night Dierks borrowed legendary Vince Gill and phenomenal guitarist and host for the night, Keith Urban to play and sing back up to Bentley's Sideways and Free and Easy. After all, it was all for the hall.

The sold out "We're All For The Hall" benefit proceeds go to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The show is part of the museum's "All for the Hall" fundraising initiative created and led by Gill since 2005.

CMT posted an article and photos from the night including host Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley and Taylor Swift. It was Vcast online for those who weren't able to get tickets.

After the show, Dierks tweeted again:

@dierksBentley: all for the hall!...thanks for the fun...miss my band. headed to station inn for a tv thing and some bluegrass! #fb

  1. No wonder Dierks missed his band, he did his normal crowd firing up & running around we all know too well, and the backup provided could hardly keep up the music to his fast paced performance!! Keith & Vince finally got the beat right in the middle beginning of Sideways as Dierks ran from side to side of the stage & commanded the crowds participation!!
    This was my very first trip to Nashville & I got to attend the biggest fundraisers put on by all of my favorite country singers.
    Dierks Miles & Music was an INCREDIBLE day of great weather,motorcycles & leather, good food & awesome music all for a wonderful cause. All for the Hall was a magical night of comradery between every artist influenced by Nashvilles greatest legends of music & stories told by the biggest stars reflecting on the importance of helping their Nashville community.
    Amazing celebrations two days apart from eachother & I was simply honored to feel a part of it all too!!
    I will be planning my next TN trip around both of these events next October!!

  2. Watching the beginning of 'Sideways' was painful. I don't know how that got mixed up since they soundchecked, but Dierks seemed to push through it! It must be hard to do a performance without the people you usually work with.
