Country stars like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Trace Adkins[/lastfm], and most recently, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Rich[/lastfm] have done extremely well on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice. I loved letting the rest of the world in on the ‘secret’ that country artists are not just talented onstage, they also possess business smarts that got them to the level of success they have in their lives and careers! [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dierks Bentley[/lastfm] shares those same talents, and I am pretty bummed that he has declined Trump’s offer to be on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice. Why did he turn down this offer?
In a recent interview with a Seattle country radio station, Dierks explained his reason for declining the opportunity to carry the ‘country music’ torch on the hit show:
I was actually asked,and I considered it for a long time, and I was flattered to be asked. But at the end of the day, I love playing music — it’s what excites me creatively. Writing songs, making records and touring is everything to me. That’s the dream, and the dream takes up a lot of time. With two kids and a wife, my plate’s pretty full.”
Well we sure cannot argue that he is great at what he does, and we are loving his latest single: “Am I The Only One” too!
