He wasn't there to compete--no need. Dierks Bentley showed his true talent when he performed on the NBC America's Got Talent finale last night with country singer contestant, Jimmy Rose. The duo sang Dierks's newest single, "I Hold On" (a shortened-for-TV version).
Jimmy started out the song, "It's just an old beat up truck..." and although Dierks was away from the microphone, he visibly mouthed the words along with the up and comer, not satisfied to stand silent to his own-penned lyrics!
Jimmy is from Kentucky and served in Iraq and worked briefly as a miner. Nice job pointing to the American flag when singing, "like the stripes to the flag, like a boy to his dad..." We're thinking "Down In The Mine" might have been an appropriate encore!
Jimmy left in third place, but we're thinkin' he will show up in Nashville soon!
