Dierks Bentley made an appearance on Letterman last night to perform “Riser” from his ACM-nominated album of the same name. What was unique about this performance though was Dierks and his band performed it acoustically. And I have to say I like this version even more than the original. This is also to me what separates Bentley from many others in mainstream country music. He can actually sing and entertain people without having to rely on bells and whistles.
Check out the performance above and be sure to weigh in about it in the comments below.
