It’s been over a week after the 2018 CMA Music Festival’s culmination and the stages that were heated up by various artists may have just subsided. But certainly, the glorious moments in the lives of the different attendees, artists and audience alike, are still fresh in their minds. Dierks Bentley was among the more than 350 performers who have rocked the country music fans throughout downtown Nashville. At the final night of the annual music festival, Bentley surprised the audience with an appearance by country icon Dwight Yoakam. While the attendees have already expected Bentley’s charming performances, his number with Yoakam came really as a surprise. The two performed the latter’s 1993 hit called “Fast as You.” Watch a short clip of them singing below.
