Country music superstar Dierks Bentley is no stranger to a lighted stage and the Grand Ole Opry is as big as it gets.

The country singer and songwriter has new music on the horizon and is taking his show on the road to promote it. Bentley is one of the most successful and popular country music artists of recent memory with a long list of accomplishments. He has won numerous accolades since bursting on to the country music scene in 2003.

Bentley was at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night for a couple of reasons. First, he introduced rising star Parker McCollum and then helped to induct Rhonda Vincent as a Grand Ole Opry member. On Sunday afternoon he took to social media to share his excitement over the opportunities at the Opry.

“Had a lot of firsts last night at the opry,” He says in the caption. “Was exciting to introduce Parker McCollum to the stage for his debut. Honored to officially induct Rhonda Vincent as a Grand Ole Opry member.”

He also brought his guitar and played a couple of songs while he sat backstage. He took to Instagram on Saturday to share a few videos of his backstage performance with his fans.

“Backstage at the opry tonight,” he says in the post’s caption space. “What a year it’s been.”

Bentley has a large social media following with more than 2 million followers on Instagram. Both his Grand Ole Opry posts drew thousands of “likes” along with hundreds of comments and shares.

With songs like “What was I Thinking” and “Come a Little Closer,” Bentley has become a central figure in the country world. The 45-year-old singer has put 25 singles on the Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts.

Of those 25 charting songs, 17 took the top overall spot on the charts. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and political unrest, Bentley has tried to remain low key, but with new music on tap for Bentley, he isn’t looking to slow down any time soon.
