It looks like talent runs in Dierks Bentley’s family! 

Bentley’s eldest child, Evelyn Day (Evie), joined him on stage to perform his chart-topping hit, “Different For Girls,” while performing at Chicago’s Windy City Smokeout on Saturday (July 10). 

The 12-year-old held her own on stage, filling in for Bentley’s duet partner, Elle King, as thousands of festival goers cheered her on. Click below to watch their performance, courtesy Kristin Toon. 

The “Gone” singer documented his Windy City Smokeout experience on Instagram. 

“Hard to put into words how much we’ve missed this as a band and crew… thanks for coming out Chicago. You were legendary,” Bentley wrote. “Just a few more weeks until the #BeersOnMe tour kicks off.”

Bentley’s festival appearance came just days after he shared the unfortunate news that his much-anticipated 2021 Seven Peaks Music Festival has been cancelled

“I am so sorry to announce that we are going to have to cancel 7P for this year. I really could not be more bummed out about it. We tried everything to make it happen, but Chaffee County has decided against lifting capacity restrictions,” Bentley wrote in a social media statement. 

Although his festival has been cancelled, Bentley’s 2021 Beers On Me Tour is still on. Kicking off on August 13 in Salt Lake City, the tour will visit 20+ markets through October 22. Riley Green and Parker McCollum are set to join him on the run.
