Yes, that's right. A flip phone that doesn't connect to the internet.

During a recent interview, the country star showed the reporter his phone -- At her request.

She was noticeably baffled by the modest devise.

Baffled may actually be an understatement.

When Bentley was asked why he didn't have a smartphone, he alluded to modern devices being distracting.

As he puts it, the assault on your brain from having that kind of internet and social media access, can be extremely limiting in terms of creativity.

Would you ever consider going back to a flip phone?

After all, Dierks does have a point!
