It all started when Dierks Bentley decided to get nude.
Filmed as a promo for his upcoming hosting gig at the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards, Dierks let it all hang out in what he affectionately called his naked nightmare.
So when Rare Country brought the subject up at a pre-show news conference on April 1, things started innocently enough.
“I guess I have to ask my wife,” Luke replied when asked about what his wife, Caroline, had thought about Dierk’s indecent exposure. “Maybe she kept quiet for a reason.”
“We are just trying to have fun with all of this,” added Dierks. “This all goes pretty quick so we are just trying to find some ways to have fun at the ACMs and this hosting deal.”
But then things got weird.
There was talk of modesty patches and tube socks and fake sex, leaving Luke with only one thing left to say. “Next question please.”
But if this quick exchange is any indication of what things may be like come April 3 at the ACM Awards between these two, it looks like it’s going to be one interesting night.
