Dierks Bentley was recently announced as a performer for the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards. He’ll be singing his new 2018 single “Woman, Amen” (listen above), which is currently in the top-20 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart, and he’s giving fans the opportunity to participate in his performance. He’s asking for photo submissions of everyday female heroes that will be featured on screens during his performance. Maybe Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris and other female artists can submit their own photos since they’re rarely considered for Entertainer of the Year at the ACMs.
Submissions should be posted on Twitter or Instagram with the official hashtag #WomanAmenACM by Wednesday, April 4. The song is a tribute to a loving woman and includes the lyrics, “She gives me faith / She gives me grace / She gives me hope / She gives me strength / She gives me love / Love without end / Thank God for this woman, Amen.”
Bentley has just one ACM nomination this year, but not for “Woman, Amen.” He contends for Video of the Year for “Black.” He has won that award twice in the last three years, for “Drunk on a Plane” (2015) and then “Forever Country” (2017) with dozens of other artists who also participated in that massive collaboration for the 50th anniversary of the Country Music Association Awards. Bentley’s only other ACM victory was way back in 2004 when he was awarded Top New Artist of the Year. He did co-host the telecast twice alongside Luke Bryan in 2016 and 2017, but this time Reba McEntire is taking over those duties.
Are you excited to see heroic women featured in Bentley’s performance?
