Dierks Bently Gives Gamers Unique Chance

Posted by Mac McKinnon on 06/30/2008

Dierks Bentley is more than just a singer/songwriter; apparently the country star is well-versed in the world of online gaming. Bentley was recently named the Xbox Artist of the Month in conjunction with the game console’s new “Game with Fame” promotion. He is the first country music singer to receive the honor. Past participating artists include Ludacris, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Fall Out Boy, Maroon 5, Kanye West and KoRn. Bentley played several rounds of Halo 3 while interacting with other online gamers through the connective headset. Obviously skilled at the game, he posted the highest kill count of all in one of the rounds. “I just met with Dierks Bentley in combat on Halo 3,” blogged one fan on the Xbox 360 web site. “He seems like an amazing person, very cool and real. I did not get to play on his team but at least I can now say ‘I played with and I killed Dierks Bentley on Halo 3.’”
