Watch Dierks Bentley Put A Bluegrass Twist On Adele Hit
Singer Performs “Set Fire To The Rain” On Upcoming “CMT Unplugged” Show
He recently filmed the episode at CMT’s Nashville studio. In addition to “Set Fire To The Rain,” the set list includes current single “5-1-5-0,” as well as past hits “Am I The Only One,” “Up On The Ridge,” and “Home.”
“I love breaking my songs back down to their original acoustic foundation,” says Bentley about performing on the “Unplugged” series. “When I write these songs by myself or with friends, we just use acoustic guitars . . . so it’s fun to sometimes go back to just the simple groove and idea you had to begin with.”
