Dierks Bentley performs his latest #1, "Woman, Amen," Friday night on the annual WE Dayspecial on ABC.
The Arizona native admits he didn't have to do much for his song to become the anthem for this year's event that celebrates young people who are making a positive impact on the world.
"It's great to have a song that just opened doors for you. I didn't have to do anything to make that happen," Dierks says candidly. "It's such a great message, great song, great music. It's just out there opening new doors..."
"This is a special where all these young women through community service get a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles," he continues, "to be a part of this festival that really honors community service and involvement in your local community."
In all, sixteen-thousand students and educators gathered at The Forum in L.A. for the April event. Dierks' special guests were Jennifer and Sydnee Floyd, who put together packages of necessities for Nashville's homeless population.
"These two girls, Sydnee and Jennifer, who put together local supplies here for homeless, this song became tied in with their journey and brought us all out there," Dierks explains. "And I got a chance to perform this song on this stage in front of all these great young women."
Jennifer and Sydnee are also featured in Dierks' music video for the song. You can watch "Woman, Amen," as well as a clip of Dierks surprising the mother and daughter on YouTube, ahead of his performance on Friday night.
Watch for Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell and The Chainsmokers on the WE Day special as well. It starts at 8 p.m. ET Friday on ABC.
