Dierks Bentley played a show at Nashville's Station Inn on Tuesday night, but it was Bentley's daughters who really stole the show. Five-year-old Evie Bentley along with her younger sister Jordan, 3, took the stage as their father's opening act in their newly formed band called Sandy Bottom Sisters. But the girls couldn't stay to see the whole show because they had to get home in time for bed. The night also included special guest appearances by Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves, with Kacey joining Dierks onstage to perform the Buck Owens' hit "Act Naturally." (Photo Credit: www.cmt.com)
Garth Brooks will return to Ireland this summer to play five sold-out concerts in Dublin's Croke Park. And while most people are looking forward to Garth's first shows in the country for more than 15 years, some residents are protesting the singer's return to the park and recently picketed outside of the stadium to voice their opposition to the concerts scheduled for July 25-29. Members of the Croke Park Residents Alliance say that the concerts will have a negative effect on the area, including increased noise pollution and litter. Following his upcoming shows in Dublin, Brooks will also hit the road on a worldwide tour later this year.
