Dierks Bentley Covers Avicii's 'Hey Brother'

(Radio.com) Dierks Bentley is currently in London promoting his new album, Riser. On a recent tour stop, he took the stage to perform his own rendition of Avicii's popular single "Hey Brother." Bentley and his band put their spin on the hit, complete with fiddle.

Avicii is a Swedish-born producer and electronic music DJ, and he's been toying with folk- and bluegrass-style vocals in some of his recordings, including recent hits "Wake Me Up" and "Hey Brother."

Bentley released his album Riser last month, and in an interview with Radio.com he explained the life events and at-times "crazy" emotions behind the release.

"It's crazy with touring and family and your dad passing away and at the same time your son is born," he said. "As a songwriter, [you have to] keep that honesty and somehow put life into a three-minute-and-30-second song in different snippets throughout the whole album. That was the main challenge, and I feel like I was able to do that." Check out the cover here.
