You remember Dierks, don't you Academy of Country Music? He was your 2003 Top New Artist of the Year and a 2005 Top Male Vocalist Nominee. Wow, that was five years ago and look at all the ground-breaking music he's created, performed and topped the charts with since then, with no acknowledgement from you! Really?
Dierks Quote of the Day:
"The music I have heard from Dierks Bentley's upcoming bluegrass album Up on the Ridge, is very impressive, and I suspect it may well prove to be a career landmark for him." ~Chet FlippoMaybe 2011 will be DB's year to be recognized by the ACM!
Now, some of you may recall that Dierks was scheduled to perform on the same day for the Dow Live Earth Run benefit in Minnesota. He's been replaced by Estelle, with a note that due to scheduling conflicts, Dierks Bentley will no longer be able to perform at the Dow Live Earth Run for Water event in Minneapolis.
Sorry, Minnesota! But a TV appearance will reach a wider audience, exposing Dierks Bentley's talent to millions in the comfort of their living rooms! Good move, Academy of Country Music. It could've been great, though! Just sayin'!
