Check out our 10QQQ with Dierks Bentley…
1. Song you wish you wrote-
“Mine Would Be You” current song Blake Shelton has out…Great Song!
2. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
“Oh, Gosh… I think I’m always working on my propensity to be bothered. When I wake up in the morning, I’m a total bear. The kids call me the bear.” Turns out Dierks isn’t even good with coffee until after 10am.
His wife would say, “I’m a terrible sleeper…always sleeping in a different place. She probably wishes I was a little more of a morning person.”
3. If you had any super power, what would it be?
“Clone my kids at this age, and let one continue to grow-up.”
4. What’s your favorite tv show?
“Breaking Bad was my favorite TV show, now that it’s gone I’m just like, depressed.”
5. If you’re guitar could talk, what would it say?
“Oh, I’m so glad it can’t. I’ve had the same guitar since the beginning of time…before the publishing deal…before the record deal so it’s seem some pretty interesting stuff. So, it would probably say A: Can you put me the hands of a more capable guitar player and B: another Jager shot please to erase my memory of the past.
6. What is your biggest pet peeve?
“Being late…me personally when I’m late and not being respectful of other people’s time. About other people, I don’t really have pet peeves. My wife’s favorite expression is ‘You do you.’ So instead of getting mad at somebody…just ‘you do you.”
7. Who wouldn’t you mind being stuck in an elevator with for hours?
“Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Sammy…The Rat Pack…to hear what life was like in Vegas before it became all touristy”
8. Favorite Childhood memory?
“Working on the lawn mower engine with my dad, putting in the doggie door with my dad, fishing with my dad. One time my dad caught a trout with a dandelion. My mom chasing me around the house with a spoon making me eat soap.
9. What was the first thing you though when you look in the mirror this morning?
“Put on a hat…but the only hat I had said Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row on it, my bar out in Scottsville, and I didn’t wanna wear a hat with my name on it.”
10. It’s 3am and you’re not asleep, what are you doing?
“I’m probably panicking that I’m not gonna sleep for the rest of the night. If I’m on the bus, I’m probably playing poker”
There are much more extensive answers to some of these questions, so watch the video below for the full 10 QQQ including a bonus about his dad. Check out our interview with Dierks about Riser here.
