Dierks Bentley performs onstage during the 52nd Academy Of Country Music Awards at T-Mobile Arena on April 2, 2017 in Las Vegas.  

Amidst his Academy of Country Music Awards hosting duties with Luke Bryan, country crooner Dierks Bentley took the stage to do what he does best, performing his tune "Black."

Despite the color mentioned in the song's name, Bentley opted for a white t-shirt and blue jeans combo for his performance, with only a single white spotlight behind him while he sang sans his guitar. Bentley's simple stage setting allowed for this voice to shine above everything, especially during the bridge when he really gave it his all.

Prior to his performance, Bentley and Bryan shared their Las Vegas adventures with the crowd, which included a trip to the Thunder Down Under show. Unfortunately none of the shirtless Australian strippers showed up while Bentley sang, but his vocals made up for it.
