A Show-Stopping Performance

Dierks Bentley captivated the audience with his rendition of Elvis’ “Little Sister.” The 1961 hit tells the story of Elvis taking a chance on the younger sister of a girl he used to date. While Elvis describes the older sister as “mean and evil” he begs of the little sister to not be the same.

“Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Little sister, don’t you
Kiss me once or twice
Then say it’s very nice
And then you run
Little sister, don’t you
Do what your big sister done”

Bentley imitated the rock and roll feel in his rendition, letting his raspy vocals take the lead. Bentley even showed off his guitar skills as he rocked throughout the tune. The crowd clapped along the entire time and gave him a loud stamp of approval following the performance.

Although there will never be another like The King, Dierks Bentley sure knows how to honor his legacy.
