Dierks and the Dusters

Last night (1/20), country star Dierks Bentley was the special guest with The Infamous Stringdusters at Nashville’s Station Inn. Bentley knocked around the Nashville bluegrass scene for a number of years before hitting it big, and has remained friends with – and performed and recorded with – many of his “down on Broadway” pals since.

The ‘Dusters featured Dierks on their new CD, Things That Fly, which is due from Sugar Hill this Spring. The song is 17 Cents, written by Jody Stecher, and it is sung as a duet with Jeremy Garrett. It can be heard in its entirety in streaming audio for the next few days on The Infamous Stringdusters web site.

We’ll post some live photos from The Station Inn if we can find some.

In other Sugar Hill artists news…
