Dierks and Scruggs. Is that like Dailey and Vincent, the dynamic bluegrass duo who just won the IBMA Entertainer of the Year Award for the third time? No. It's like Dierks Bentley playing "fan in awe of greatness" when he had the chance to spend time with the legendary Earl Scruggs. Take a look at the Twitter exchange below as our DB Congress president shared his experience with us!
