That feeling when one of, if not the, biggest bands in the World covers one of your songs…
I need a drink… maybe several!
Just don’t have too many, Dierks, you might forget that it happened all together! What’s causing Bentley’s thirst? Well, at a concert in New Orleans over the weekend, U2 snuck in a couple lines from “Drunk On a Plane” while performing “Beautiful Day” – press play below to check it out!
Pretty cool, hey?
This isn’t the first interaction between the two…in an interview with Radio.com, Dierks admitted ” I have a tradition now of sending a song or two to Bono for every record and getting a response”.
Perhaps U2 is just returning the favour? Have you ever seen Dierks’ cover of “Pride(In the Name of Love)”??
Bentley actually recorded a version of the song, too! “Pride(In the Name of Love” with The Punch Brothers featuring Del McCoury can be found on Bentley’s 2010 album, Up on the Ridge.
