Dierks Bentley took to the stage to deliver a powerful message to the strong women in our lives with his performance of his latest single, “Woman, Amen,” at the 53rd Annual ACM Awards Sunday night (April 15).
“Woman, Amen” was inspired by Bentley’s wife, Cassidy Black. The song spoke for itself as Bentley bounced around the stage singing of his gratitude for his wife’s love and sacrifices.
Bentley also wanted to use his performance slot to honor more than just his wife. The screens above the stage displayed fan-submitted images of the inspirational women in their lives, all the more driving home the song’s message.
After the song, Bentley made his way offstage to his wife in the front row. A bit of awkwardness ensued as Cassidy tried to keep Bentley’s display of affection to a minimum, but she finally gave in and stood up to embrace her husband.
The moment soon turned into a group hug as Bentley’s former ACM co-host Luke Bryan jokingly joined in. Bentley posted a recap of the moment on Twitter afterwards.
The 53rd Annual ACM Awards were hosted by Reba, and aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
