Dierks Bentley to Star in Bluegrass Ralph and Carter Stanley Tribute This October
Dierks Bentley is a complicated man, a performer who is steeped in country music with the love of Bluegrass. His 2010 LP ‘Up on the Ridge’ was a Bluegrass moment in his career, and we’re told he’s going to add to that part of his life by headlining in a concert that is designed to honor Ralph and Carter Stanley, considered by many to be Bluegrass royalty.
The special concert will take place on Wednesday, October 24th at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s ‘CMA Theater’ in Nashville, with special guests Sierra Hull with Justin Moses, the Gibson Brothers, and Dan Auerbach. Did you know that Ralph Stanley is the man who sang the original ‘Constant Sorrow’ tune, made famous in the George Clooney ‘Oh Brother, Where Art Thou’ movie? Ralph died in 2016 at the age of 89, while Carter died at the age of 41 in 1966. Carter was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Honor, while younger brother Ralph was inducted into both the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Honor and the Grand Ole Opry.
