While in Colorado for his Seven Peaks Music Festival, Dierks Bentley was able to get in a little fishing. The only problem was that he needed a fishing license, which he never got.

Dierks posted a video of himself sitting in a patrol car, getting a ticket for you guessed it... fishing without a license. Colorado Parks and Wildlife responded to Bentley’s clip saying, "we tip our caps to Dierks Bentley for being a gentleman when our officer cited him for fishing without a license this weekend at the Seven Peaks Fest in Buena Vista. We appreciate his kind words about CPW and we welcome him back anytime. With a license of course.”

Luke Bryan joined Dierks during the fishing expedition. Bentley posted a photo on Instagram, reveling in the fact that he caught 3 fish in a half hour and Luke only caught one. He said it's not a competition though because Seven Peaks is all about "community and good vibes." But if it was, he "would be crushing him."

Sunday night at the festival in Buena Vista, Colorado, Dierks brought his adorable 10-year-old daughter Evie on stage to sing Brandi Carlile’s part of their duet, "Travelin’ Light." The apple does not fall far from the tree, she is certainly a future superstar. Before they began singing, Dierks told the crowd that being at a festival is all about traveling light and being in the moment. Friends, drinks, and music is all you need.
