Dierks Bentley Plays Tom Petty Guitar In New Video

Dierks Bentley is playing Tom Petty’s guitar in the new video for “American Girl.” 

The video begins with Dierks strapping on Petty’s signature Rickenbacker guitar that was flown in from his archives in California just for the shoot.

Dierks commented through a press release and said:
“Holding an instrument that carries so much musical history and significance was surreal, you could almost feel the stories resonate from it as I played it. Tom Petty's lyrics and delivery were a huge part of what made his music so impactful.”

The song is on the upcoming album, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty. A release date has not been announced.
