Thursday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
9/27/2012 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Good Morning! The sixth annual ACM Honors, held Monday night (Sept. 25) at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, was an evening of celebrating the pioneers of country music as well as the musicians, producers and behind-the-scenes people who bring the genre to the masses.
Dierks Bentley was one of the biggest fans at the event, though his real job was to host it. As he came onstage at the onset of the evening, he proclaimed, “I’m just like Minnie Pearl tonight — I’m just so proud to be here.”
At one point, Dierks flubbed a line, stopped and explained, “I’m very nervous just being around these guys. I know where they’re all sitting but I’m just focusing on my little friend (the monitor) up there.”
