Country singer Dierks Bentley once worked in the videotape library for The Nashville Network, soaking up tradition while singing his nights away for tips. But these days, his career as a musician takes center stage. The combination of Bentley's appreciation of his musical predecessors and his modern, world-weary sound make him a favorite of fans young and old.

In this performance, Bentley plays songs from his fourth studio album, Feel That Fire. Selections include the title track, one of his most personal songs ("Better Believer") and another soft ballad, "I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes." His latest single, "Sideways," closes out the set. Feel That Fire debuted at the top spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
