Dierks Bentley, who has recorded 10 No. 1 singles to date, brought his brand of rocking country to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre April 12, 2014. The 38-year-old Arizona native brought the crowd to its feet before the show ever started by showing video the tour had filmed in and around St. Augustine — including landmark buildings from the nation’s oldest city and tourist favorites such as the Alligator Farm. The crowd rarely sat after that.
Bentley, a dynamic performer who appreciates the crowd and lets them know it, is also very camera aware during the time when media are permitted to photograph the show. He made it a point to
spend a little time with essentially every photographer as he was performing to make sure they had a chance to get a great picture.
Two other bands were on the bill with Bentley, the Brothers Osborne kicked things off at 6:30 pm and Battle Creek, Michigan’s Frankie Ballard took the stage at 7:30 pm. Ballard’s single Sunshine & Whiskey became his first No. 1 hit earlier this year.
