Dierks Bentley took a break from the studio to join Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Part of Fallon’s Pearl Jam week, the country singer took the stage with McCready for a performance of the band’s famous “Alive” and put his own spin on the track.
Bentley took to Twitter earlier in the day, joking with fans that he might wear a Blake Shelton shirt on the show.
