While performing in Tampa, FL over the weekend as part of his Beers On Me Tour, Dierks Bentley invited his oldest child, Evelyn Day (Evie) to join him on stage after taking a trip to the Florida State Fair.
Bentley has brought his kids on stage several times before, but this time, he and Evie didn’t choose one of his hits to perform. Instead, they opted to step outside of the country music genre and sang a cover of Pink’s “All I Know So Far.”

“You couldn’t have picked a country song?” Bentley asked his daughter before warning the audience that he could mess up a few of the lyrics to the song by the edgy pop singer.
He began singing and then Evie, while sporting her pink cowboy hat, confidently joined in for the second verse. She continued, belting out the chorus as she shifted her focus between her dad and the audience.
“You throw your head back, and you spit in the wind/Let the walls crack, ’cause it lets the light in/Let ’em drag you through hell/They can’t tell you to change who you are/That’s all I know so far/And when the storm’s out, you run in the rain/Put your sword down, dive right into the pain/Stay unfiltered and loud, you’ll be proud of that skin full of scars/That’s all I know so far/That’s all I know so far,” they sang.
Never missing a beat, the talented father-daughter duo finished the song and took a bow together, earning a roar of applause from the excited crowd. Evie gave her dad a final hug before making her way off stage.
The teenager made her Rodeo Houston debut earlier this year in March. Together, they sang the ZZ Top classic rock song, “Gimme All Your Lovin.’”
Next week, Bentley will be enjoying the views of Villa Grove, CO in the San Luis Valley for the third run of his three-day music festival, Seven Peaks. After a two-year hiatus, the festival will return to Colorado from September 2-4. It will feature a star-studded lineup that includes Bentley, Morgan Wallen, Tracy Lawrence, Ashely McBryde, HARDY and more.
He first made the announcement via social media in April.
“I can’t wait to see everyone on Labor Day Weekend. This is going to be a fun one,” he wrote.
Before his festival kicks into high gear, Bentley has a few more stops to make on his Beers On Me Tour. His next performance will take place on August 26 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
His latest single, “Gold,” is climbing the charts at country radio.
