Dierks Bentley and Elle King Share “Something in Common” for CBS Video Series

Dierks Bentley and his “Different for Girls” duet partner, Elle King, became part of CBS This Morning’s Something in Common video series Wednesday morning (Oct. 26).

The series brings together two people, who share a bond, for an intimate conversation. In the series, Dierks and the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer take CBS This Morning along as they prepare for their appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, which marked Elle’s first time on the Opry circle. The cross-genre friends also sat down in an interview setting to learn more about each other.

Elle: As the pop princess that you are.

Dierks: Yes?

Elle: How does it feel to be branching out with someone as cool and rock-n-roll as me?

Dierks: Yeah, I’m definitely not pop.

Elle: Do you want to be pop?

Dierks: Not really, No. I’ve never wanted to crossover. I like this genre.

Elle: Do you want to do a duet with me on my next album?

Dierks: I would. You’re about the only person that I want to do anything with.

Elle: Really?

Dierks: Yeah, for real [high five].

That’s one album we’ll be waiting on. We’ll have to stay tuned for another Dierks and Elle collaboration.

For now, check out their conversation on Something in Common:

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
