Like a lot of people, Dierks Bentley says he lost a little bit of his Christmas spirit growing up, but once he had kids it all came back.
Dierks says now that he’s dad to Evie, Jordan and Knox, he's a regular Clark Griswold. And like the madness on display in “National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation,” Dierks admits he's apt to go a little overboard decorating the house with lights and a tree.
“All of those things that you did as a kid and appreciated as a kid, you get a chance to do over again when you have kids,” Dierks shares. “Because you kinda become one again.”
From last years Nashville 1/2 (soooo many hills😣) I've taken a lot of pictures with D over the years in full, professional hair and makeup....always trying and failing to impersonate someone who is comfortable and relaxed in front of cameras. When I see those pics I often feel a sharp disconnect. But when I see pictures of me after races...sweaty and spent and proud and smiling I feel a wave of recognition of my true self. For those of you who are running April 17 I look forward to seeing your post race pictures 👊🏃♀️
