Dierks Bentley Surprises Fans at Country Music Hall of Fame

Fans visiting the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Thursday, June 9 got quite the surprise when Dierks Bentley made his “Every Mile a Memory” exhibit come to life with an expected appearance.

The superstar arrived at the CMHOF and went straight to his exhibit to greet unsuspecting fans visiting the museum. In a video posted to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Facebook page, Bentley, 40, enters the exhibit and pokes his head out near a mannequin dressed in clothes he previously wore. Fans behind the glass realize he’s there and begin to smile and take photos of the superstar. He proceeds to give his beloved guitar a kiss and wave at fans from behind the glass.

After visiting the exhibit, which runs through September 6, 2016, Bentley made his way to the museum lobby to sign autographs for fans who snatched up free tickets for the signing session.

That night, Bentley performed for the sold-out crowd at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium and brought his new friend and duet partner, Elle King, along for the ride.

The Arizona’s native’s new album, Black, debuted at No.1 last week, marking the best sales week of the singer/songwriter’s career thus far.
