Dierks' Party On Ice
Dierks Bentley celebrated his No. 1 hit "Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)" with a party at Nashville's Sommet Center, home to the Nashville Predators hockey team, Dec. 4.
Dierks noted that he wanted to make the party a special one. "They [No. 1 records] don't come that often," said Dierks. "It's a big accomplishment. So I wanted to make as big a party as possible, not just for me but the guys who wrote the song." Dierks' co-writers were also his close friendsÂÂband members Rod Janzen and Robbie Harrington and his producer Brett Beavers. "It's pretty cool that we actually creatively worked on something together that ended up making the record and going all the way to No. 1," Dierks added. After the party, Dierks, a huge hockey fan, hosted a brief hockey game between two local teams for which he regularly plays.
