We kicked off Dierks Bentley’s visit at Levine Children’s Hospital with a round of questions from our patients. We learned that his favorite Charlotte activity is visiting the Science Discovery Museum with his kids! In an extensi

During the interview, we learned Dierks has an affinity for vegetables, and if he were to have a statue made of him, he would pose with his fists in the air as if on stage in front of a cheering crowd. Dierks admitted that was one of his favorite questions, but our favorite moment was Dierks showcasing his version of the running man and attempting a DJ voice.

Dierks played a round of “Guess that Country Music Star,” and one could say he knew his colleagues pretty well. Dierks and Bryson even sang “Huntin, Fishin, and Lovin Every Day” together. Afterward, Gray quizzed Dierks on his favorite holiday and was so adamant Christmas is the best holiday that he convinced Dierks to change his answer from The Fourth of July to Christmas, too.

When asked whom he resembled, Dierks had the studio laughing when he humbly confessed he looks like Brad Pitt; however, a highlight of the visit was when he was asked, “What is one word you would use to describe yourself,” and Dierks said he hoped it would be grateful.

We sure are grateful for your visit, Dierks! Thanks for a fabulous afternoon full of fun games and unforgettable dance moves!

Families and patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center were delighted to meet award winning, country singer Dierks Bentley.

Dierks is currently on tour across the United States but took time away from his summer tour to sit down and answer some patients’ burning questions. Charlie learned that Dierks loves fishing just as much he does while Dierks revealed he has his pilot’s license and owns a single engine plane. We found out about his favorite hobbies like going to the beach and playing with his dogs at home. He also talked about how he has had to adjust to the cold winters since moving to Nashville, but still enjoys summer the most. A highlight of the visit was when LeAnne, a patient asked about funny tour stories involving his kids. He got a huge laugh from his kids favorite question “Does Jon Pardi like to party?” referring to his tour mate.

Dierks went on to play one of the studio’s favorite games “This or That?” We timed him to see how quickly he could decide between two choices. This game revealed that he loves dogs and Coca-Cola but he couldn’t choose between ice cream or cake. While he might have a sweet tooth, perhaps the sweetest moment was when he sang one of his hit songs “Riser” to a patient who participated by phone.

Amazing memories were created throughout his visit. Thank you Dierks, for spending part of your day with us, we had a blast!
