Dierks Bentley Helps Canaan Smith Celebrate His First No. 1

(Radio.com) Everyone knew that there would be some pranks on the Sounds of Summer tour. But as Dierks Bentley and crew proved during a show this past weekend, they're pretty good at spontaneous celebration, too.

"Canaan Smith today has his first No. 1 ever with 'Love You Like That,'" Bentley said backstage in a video from the Sounds of Summer tour stop in D.C. "We're gonna go run across the stage and have a little fun at his expense. It's so great, the fact that he has his very first No. 1."

Bentley, Kip Moore and Maddie & Tae dressed up in white jumpsuits with #1s written in black marker, and then they stormed the stage during Smith's set.

Mid-song, Smith sees his tourmates come out and gives them all big hugs.But this isn't the only celebrating Smith has in store. During an interview with Radio.com, he let us in on his celebratory plans if "Love You Like That," the lead single from his debut album Bronco, were to hit No. 1.

A fan of cars (after telling us about his first car, a blue Jeep Cherokee), Smith said he made a deal with the head of promotion at Mercury who was planning on buying a Jeep.

"He was wanting to buy a Jeep," Smith explained. "I said, 'Why don't you wait? And if 'Love You Like That' goes No. 1, you buy the Jeep and I'll trick it out. I'll jack it up. I'll put the tires, the wheels, the tow package, black it out. Whatever you want to do.' That's our deal." Read more here.
