DIERKS BENTLEY'S father passed away on Friday . . . so he's taking some time to be with family.
He postponed Saturday's concert after the Washington Nationals baseball game . . . and is canceling this Wednesday's fan club party in Nashville.
Dierks expects to return for his show this Saturday in Detroit, Michigan. You can check Dierks' Twitter page for updates. (The picture above is of a young Dierks Bentley and his father Leon)
LUKE BRYAN and KIMBERLY PERRY will be co-hosting this year's "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock". That's the show featuring all the good times you missed because you were too cheap to buy tickets to the CMA Music Festival.
Anyway, it's going to air September 17th on ABC . . . so, now you know. (Music Row)
Before BRAD PAISLEY’S performance on Friday's Good Morning America Summer Concert Series performance, he revealed that he'd like to do a duet with . . . LADY GAGA.
