Watch Dierks Bentley, Cole Swindell Team Up at CMA Fest 2017 in 360-Degree View

Subscribe to 98.1 Minnesota’s New Country on

Didn’t make it to CMA Fest 2017 back in June? Fans can now get an up-close-and-personal look at Cole Swindell‘s special guest appearance during Dierks Bentley‘s Nissan Stadium set at the festival thanks to a new 360-degree video.

The 360-degree video, which readers can watch above, features Bentley introducing Swindell and then joining him for a rollicking, high-energy performance of their song “Flatliner.” Viewers can click around the video to get a front-row view of Swindell and Bentley’s performance, along with a close-up peek at what’s going on onstage. (For the full 360-degree experience, click the video to watch on YouTube.)


“It’s just literally about being out and a country girl dancin’ on the dance floor and drivin’ the guys crazy,” Swindell says of “Flatliner” in the video below. “It’s in no way serious; it’s just one of those fun songs.”

Adds Bentley, “I think it’s fun for the fans to hear those two voices together and see what that brings, something unexpected to the mix.”

The Country Music Association utilized 360-degree video for the first time in 2017, to capture the magic of the Nashville-based festival. Fans will get to see more from Bentley and Swindell on Wednesday night (Aug. 16), when the ABC TV special CMA Fest: The Music Event of the Summer, airs beginning at 8PM ET.

In addition to this performance from Swindell and Bentley, the CMA Fest TV special will also feature major country stars such as Garth Brooks and many more. The evening’s co-hosts are Thomas Rhett and Kelsea Ballerini.
