Dierks Bentley Caps 'Woman, Amen' Performance at ACM Awards 2018 With a Kiss for His Wife — And Luke Bryan


Dierks Bentley might not be hosting the ACM Awards this year (that honor belongs to country legend Reba McEntire), but he and his 2016 and 2017 co-host Luke Bryan still took center stage on Sunday night (April 15) at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena by sharing some love to end Dierks' performance.

Bentley took the stage to perform his latest hit “Woman, Amen.” He kept the performance pretty straightforward, bouncing through the upbeat song while drenched in a sea of blue and white spotlights. But the real highlight came at the end, when he made his way down to the front row of the crowd to find his wife, Cassidy Black, for a kiss and a hug.

Bentley clearly found inspiration from his wife for the song — but he noticed someone else coming in for some love too: Luke Bryan. As much as he tried to fend him off, he gave in to the three-way hug.

“Woman, Amen” currently sits at its peak of No. 16 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
