Dierks Bentley helps his daughter out with a huge milestone in her life: Learning how to drive.
As a highly acclaimed country music artist, Dierks Bentley continues to prove success within his career, receiving many awards and recognitions, including Grammy nominations and numerous Country Music Association (CMA) awards. Bentley burst onto the country music scene in the early 2000s with his signature blend of traditional country roots with a modern edge. With multiple chart-topping hits, including “What Was I Thinkin’,” “Drunk on a Plane,” and “Somewhere on a Beach,” he has firmly established himself as a prominent figure in the country music industry.
A Family Man
In interviews, Bentley frequently acknowledges the challenges of balancing a thriving music career with being a present husband and father. Nevertheless, he has made it a priority to be there for his family during important milestones and everyday moments alike.
Bentley married his wife, Cassidy Black, on December 17, 2005. They share three children, daughters Evalyn “Evie” Day Bentley and Jordan Catherine Bentley, and son Knox Bentley. One of his daughters made a vocal appearance on the song, “Thinking of You” from Bentley’s 2012 album, Home. (Skip to 5:46 to listen to Evie sing her own version of the song). His son also appeared in the music video for Bentley’s 2019 single, “Living.”
Despite his demanding career, Bentley makes a conscious effort to strike a balance between his work and family life. He often shares glimpses of his family on social media, offering fans a more personal and relatable side of his life.
Father/Daughter Bonding Time
On Tuesday, Bentley took to his Instagram page to share his driving lesson with his oldest daughter, Evie, who recently turned 15. A funny, yet heartwarming video showed Bentley in the car with his daughter giving her tips on how to get the car moving.
With wide eyes, Bentley facepalmed and joked, “Where’s my brake?”
Continuing to teach her, he said, “You gotta push the brake first to do anything before. Now look both ways. You gotta turn the wheel and make it go the way you want it to go. Okay, okay, here we go.”
Evie laughed and said, “This is so cool!” to which he replied, with a look of dread on his face, “Yeah, it’s really cool.”
