After a show in Orlando yesterday (Nov. 1), Dierks Bentley traveled through the night so he could make it back to Nashville to perform bright and early on Good Morning America (Nov. 2). As he prepared to perform for the crowd, Dierks got a nice little surprise: he was informed that he won the CMA Award for Vocal Collaboration of the Year for “Different For Girls” with Elle King, which, along with Video of the Year, was awarded this morning before tonight’s CMA Awards Show.
After finding out about his win, Dierks chatted with GMA host Lara Spencer.
“It’s just is a really nice way to roll into the CMA Awards,” said Dierks. “I got that one award under your belt and it’s a really special song—we’re singing that tonight with Elle King on the stage. That songs really means a lot to me and to win an award—it’s just crazy. I share that with all the fans. We’ll take it out on the road with us and put it on Steve’s drum riser.”
The Arizona native has two more award nominations to look forward to—Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year—as the 50th annual CMA Awards air tonight (Nov. 2) on ABC. Tune in to see if Dierks takes home another trophy or two.
