Country music star Dierks Bentley explains why he’s turned down acting jobs: 'Don't really want to go to LA'

Country musician Dierks Bentley is used to the big city and bright lights of Nashville, but admits he’s not ready for Hollywood.

Sharing that he has been asked to act in television programs, as well as join reality competition shows, Bentley says he’s content with his career in music.

“I don’t think I’d be good enough to doing those things,” Bentley said. “It requires, like, more time away from home and I just, I don’t want to. I had a chance to audition for Larry David and I decided not to do it. Because again, I’m like, ‘Oh, if I get it, I don’t really want to go to L.A.,'” he told “Entertainment Tonight.”

“I got a great gig. I love what I do.”

Although Bentley wanted to stay in the Midwest for a while longer, his family was eyeing a return to the South.

“I moved about 10 minutes closer to town than I was before,” he shared of moving back to Nashville. “It’s a regular neighborhood. We’ve got kids coming in and out of the house and you can just park on the street. It’s just been great for my kids, great for our family, and great for my mental health.”

“I’ve tried to change and grow and get better at what I’m doing, but at the end of the day, I’m still the same guy I’ve always been, making music that feels good to me,” he explained. “I’ve got nothing to lose.”
