When Dierks Bentley Met Elle King

Dierks Bentley

(Radio.com) Dierks Bentley and Elle King recently spent the week together in Nashville as part of CBS' Something in Common series, which brings together two voices that cross genres.

In the segment, Bentley takes King to the famed Grand Ole Opry and the two learn a little bit more about each other. Bentley told King the first time he heard his most recent No. 1 single "Different For Girls," he knew he wanted her as a guest vocalist on the song.

"I had this great song sent to me and [was] trying to find a way to take this great song somewhere unexpected so I looked for someone weird and beautiful and talented and different," he says. "For me, this was a once in a career thing where you go for something and it actually works out better than you could ever plan it."

While Bentley notes that "Different For Girls" is the complete opposite of King's song "Ex's & Oh's," he says he actually related to the girl part most on his single.

"I'm definitely the girl in 'Different For Girls,'" he says, adding that during breakups when he was younger his hair often fell out and he lost weight. "I connected to the female part of that song." Read more here.
