Merry Christmas 2011!
Christmas Religious Graphics
Is it wrong that instead of listening to Christmas music, many of us are listening to 90 second clips of "Home" over and over? I am sure we would have loved to open a present this morning and find the hard copy of Dierks' new CD, right? We only have 6 weeks to wait, with the album concert at The Ryman on February 2 and the CD release date of 2/7/2012.
Back to Christmas day. Happy birthday Jesus and happy birthday baby Jordan! That's right, Dierks Bentley's youngest daughter is one today! Here's what Dierks had to say according to American Country Countdown:
"Capitol Records Dierks Bentley was at the hospital in Nashville welcoming his daughter Jordan into the world on Christmas Day 2010. That means this Christmas is also Jordan's first birthday. Says Dierks, "Some people tend to think that's like a really bad day to have as a birthday, because you've got to share it with Jesus and share it with Christmas and all the other presents, but I think it's great."
Even if Jordan gets upset her birthday is on Christmas when she gets older, Dierks has a plan. "She could have my birthday," he says. "She can take the 20th of November, and I'll take Christmas as a birthday. Everyone will forget! I'll never get older!"
Dierks and his wife Cassidy also have a three year old daughter named Evie."
And CMT's Alison Bonaguro tells us what Christmas was like for Dierks growing up:
"There were no white Christmases for Dierks Bentley. As a kid in Arizona, his were more like dirty, dusty, sandy Christmases. "I grew up in the desert, so we would always have Christmas out in the middle of the desert. We'd go out and take four wheelers and horses and motorcycles, dirt bikes and stuff and just have Christmas in the desert," he said in a recent radio interview. "You know, wrap tin foil around the cactus and ... have Christmas in the middle of the desert.""
