Dierks Bentley recently released a performance video for “Same Ol’ Me” that was shot at the Nashville’s iconic Exit/In venue in late December 2022.
“Same Ol’ Me” is the opening song from Bentley’s upcoming 14-track 10th studio album Gravel & Gold, due out on February 24th.
“My first time playing Exit/In was just as meaningful to me as playing the Ryman and Bridgestone Arena,” Bentley said about performing at the iconic venue in the early days of his career. “I opened for Asleep at the Wheel before I had a record deal or anything. A manager was supposed to come watch me play, but they didn’t show up.”
“I had a few too many Busch Lights and passed out under a bench. The last thing I remember hearing was Ray Benson’s booming voice. I woke up around 4 am and realized I was all alone!” he added. “It was bittersweet to be in there during the last days of December as they were closing it down. I felt honored to take a shot with the guys and toast to the history there and turn the lights off.”
