Award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will represent country music while crossing genres tomorrow on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. As part of their week-long celebration for the release of Pearl Jam’s 10th studio album, members of Soundgarden, Avett Brothers and Fleet Foxes will precede Bentley’s performance Wednesday night alongside Pearl Jam’s lead guitarist Mike McCready and The Roots. “I love that Fallon dedicates a week of his show to iconic bands like Pearl Jam and I will definitely be there representing as one of their biggest fans myself,” said Bentley. “Mike and I have had a chance to collaborate before, but this will be the first time we’ve played a Pearl Jam song together for TV…really looking forward to it!” Bentley recently released “I Hold On” as the lead single off his upcoming studio album RISER and will host his 8th annual “Miles & Music for Kids” celebrity motorcycle ride and concert on Nov. 3 in Nashville, TN.
