Dierks Bentley and Brothers Obsorne Perform Live Debut of 'Burning Man' at 2018 CMT Music Awards

Star singer-songwriter Dierks Bentley teamed up with one of the hottest bands in country in Brothers Osborne earlier this year for "Burning Man," a dark and grungy collab about not losing your wild side as you mature ("I’m a little bit holy water/ But still a little bit burning man.”)

Tonight (Jun. 6), the two artists performed the song live for the first time at the CMT Music Awards, giving the song an appropriately dramatic rendering, as flames shot off around them during the string and guitar stabs of the chorus. Despite the grittiness of the performance, the song ended in some lovely harmonies between Bentley and the Bros.
