Dierks Bentley Live On Letterman…Dierks Bentley was on Ellen about a month ago, when he surprised a military family in need with a check for $50,000. Yesterday he was back on the show again, this time performing a special song from an upcoming tribute album to Bob Dylan.
Dierks performed his version of Bob Dylan’s ”Señor (Tales of Yankee Power)” with progressive bluegrass band the Punch Brothers. The song appears on the Bob Dylan tribute album, Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, a four-CD, 75-song tribute album that was released this past January.
The tribute album also features a Dylan cover by Sugarland, who put their own spin on Dylan’s ”Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You.”
The record release timed perfectly with the 50th anniversary of Amnesty International, the human rights organization that works to free political prisoners all over the world.
Special thanks to Taste of Country for the scoop on this!
