For me, seeing all of Dierks Bentley‘s hard work over the years, finally get him the recognition he so truly deserves, was one of my highlights of 2016.
He released one of the best albums of the year in 2016 (“Black”), got his own exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville in the Spring of 2016, co-hosted the ACM’s with Luke Bryan, and received a GRAMMY nomination at the end of 2016 for his collaboration with Elle King on “Different For Girls”.
These were just SOME of his amazing accomplishments last year.
And below are my picks for Dierks’ 10 Best Instagram Moments of the past year, capturing all the wonderful things that happened to a truly, great guy:
