Dierks Bentley likes to keep things weird and fun backstage when he’s on tour.

“We keep it weird,” he told Sounds Like Nashville. “You know, there’s some weird guys so I’m trying to keep it weird for them. My goal with the road, and has been for a while, is to make the daytime… it’s like the song ‘Living.’”

Bentley likes to plan special events for the crew to take part in throughout the day. He wants to make sure everyone is in good spirits.

“I’m trying to pack as much living as I can out of every day, I’m trying to pack an entire day, an entire life into every day,” he continued. “That’s my goal. And it’s a big goal. So I just have a lot of activities during the day. I’ve also recently done a plunge bath, the ice bath thing, just ’cause it’s a why not.”

The country singer even specifically brought out a “duru,” that is, a dude guru, to help inspire the team.

“A friend of mine came out and he’s just a really positive person and he’s just a great guy to talk to about stuff, Bentley said. “He gets you fired up, gets you charged up, the amount of just advice that’s like… basically it’s like an iPhone has a charger, it’s like a body charger, and so I don’t know how much is actually true, but we’ve all done pretty good out there, maybe it’s the other stuff that’s being consumed, I don’t know.”

Bentley is hitting the road this summer with LANCO and Brothers Osborne for his Mountain High tour.
