Watch Dierks Bentley Hilariously Forget His Own Lyrics on ‘Bobby Bones’

Screengrab via YouTube

Dierks Bentley has performed his songs thousands of times over the years, but that doesn’t mean his lyrics are engrained into his brain. During a recent stop at The Bobby Bones Show, Bentley had a surprisingly difficult time reciting some of his most popular tunes.

In this hilarious video, you’ll see the “Different for Girls” singer struggling to impress the popular DJ. When asked to recall the first line of his hit “5-1-5-0,” Bentley draws a blank. “I gave up coffee,” he says with a chuckle. “It was the wrong time to do that.”

You can watch the entire exchange below.

Aside from a few moments of hesitation, Bentley eventually gets back on track. After all these years, I’m sure singing feels like going on autopilot. But reciting the songs on demand? Not so much.
