Dierks Bentley is a busy guy with a big heart! He recently took a fan battling cancer out of the hospital and for a ride in his 1967 Camaro.
Dierks met Ann Soyars at the Station Inn in Nashville several years ago, before many knew his name. Back then he was trying to make it big, and Ann was his #1 fan! She also worked at the Station Inn booking acts, collecting cover charge and eventually earning the name “O.F” from Dierks. O.F. standing for “Original Fan”.
“Dierks Bentley was a kid who would sit in,” Ann tells the Tennessean. “I heard him one night, found out he had an independent CD, got it and everything on it was great. We wound up being friends. I’d go to his shows, listen and sell his CDs, and I’d tell people, ‘You better hang onto this, he’s gonna be big someday.'”
The “Drunk on a Plane” star wanted to give back to Ann and raise her spirits during her fight, so he took her for a cruise in his ’67 Camaro, and posted a picture to his Instagram account.
