During a media roundtable in Nashville yesterday (June 22), Dierks Bentley shared the news that his 3-year-old son, Knox, recently broke his arm after a nasty fall while they were on tour.
“We were outside Telluride at the bluegrass festival (which Bentley performed at) and we were renting a house there with a bunch of people,” Bentley explained. “There’s a loft above the bunkbeds, about 12-13 feet; he thought his grandfather was going to catch him, but there was an obvious miscommunication there.”
While Knox is wearing a cast and recovering nicely, Bentley realizes how the situation could have been a lot worse.
“We’re really lucky, of all the things that could’ve happened, [between] a head injury and neck [injury] … I named him Knox for a reason,” he said. “I figured, I just knew he was going to be a bruiser, but he’s doing pretty good.”
