Dierks’ Drunk Text To Alison Krauss
Alison’s music is good “heartbreak music,” says Dierks.
Dierks Bentley was surprised to receive a text recently from his musical idol Alison Krauss that asked, “Did they hurt or did they help?” Confused, Dierks figured she replied to him by mistake. He texted her back, nicely suggesting that as happy as he was to hear from her, perhaps she sent her message to the wrong guy. Krauss texted Bentley back, writing, “No, you texted me a couple of nights ago. You did say you were drinkin’.” That refreshed his memory.
According to AOL’s The Boot, on a tour bus ride from Nashville to Iowa, Dierks and his band mates were passing the time by having some beers during a “battle of who can play the sadder song” from their iTunes collection. Bentley had played Alison’s “Forget About It,” which he calls “heartbreak music.” In an awkward moment, Dierks wrote her back, confessing, “You’re right. I’m so sorry. I’m so embarrassed. Yes, it did help because our goal is to get as lonesome as possible, and your music causes that. So thank you.”
What did Alison have to say in return? “Ha!”
