Dierks Bentley and The Clemson Tigers? Seems like a winning combination to me. Let’s preface this upfront, I’m a Clemson Fan and this story could take a slight lean. LOL
On January 3. 2014 The number 12 Clemson Tigers played the number 7 Ohio State Buckeyes at Sun Life Stadium in Miami during The Orange Bowl. The Tigers were major underdogs in the game and everyone had written off Clemson and said they had no chance of winning this game. Needless to say, The Tigers beat Ohio State 40 to 35.
Dierks Bentley And The Clemson Tigers?
So here is how Dierks Bentley came into play. He was the half-time entertainment for the game. The set list was as follows
- Am I The Only One
- I Hold On
This Would Not Be The Last Time Dierks And The Clemson Tigers Met!
Monday, January 9, 2017, Clemson played Alabama at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay Florida for the college footballs National Championship for the 2016 season. My self and Tee Gentry were at this game to watch Clemson win its first National Championship in over 30 years by beating Alabama 35-31
Ok, So you ask, where does Dierks Bentley come into play? Dierks played a full 90-minute concert prior to the game in Tampa for the fans as part of the tailgate party.
So this die-hard Clemson fan will jump for joy if I ever hear of Dierks Bentley playing any part of a Clemson game. I should send him a thank you note, buy his coffee, clean his truck and do his laundry forever, Right?
