Bentley Falls for Late Show Letterman

Dierks Bentley performed Fallin' For You from his Up On The Ridge album on David Letterman Tuesday night. Letterman introduced Dierks: "My next guest is a popular singer and songwriter..."

Dierks delivered an especially soulful rendition of what I like to call "I can't staaaa-and" or "I can't taaa-aake this achin' feelin'." The band made their instruments ache with emotion, while Cassady proved a great Chris Stapleton stand in on harmony vocals.

Beautiful, nice job! That's fantastic, Letterman told Dierks afterward as he shook his hand, then asked him, "Did you hear about Willie Nelson?" Dierks replied, "I did!" But Letterman just laughed and said "We gotta go!"


  1. Loved the performance! But, what was the Willie Nelson comment about? Anybody know?

  2. Thank you for posting this. I missed the show because i was up north.

  3. I want to know what the Willie Nelson stuff was about too!
