Published On June 10, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Dierks Bentley has already taken home Video of the Year honors from the ACM and CMA Awards for his hilarious “Drunk On A Plane” video. Tonight, Dierks goes for the three-peat at the CMT Music Awards as he’s up for the night’s biggest honor, Video of the Year, for “Drunk On A Plane.”

“I’m freaked out! I’m worried. It’s actually a televised award so it’s pretty scary stuff, but it’d be great. Great video! You know, that song . . . everyone I knew was like, ‘I got an idea! I got an idea! “Drunk On A Plane”! Everyone was a videographer for a second there, but (director) Wes (Edwards) was able to get the party but also create a great story, and my niece, Bette Bentley, works with Funny or Die and so she helped get some of those cast members together and (it was) just a really great video. It was a one-day shoot, crunched it all in there, and Wes did a really good job.”

The CMT Music Awards airs live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena beginning at 8 pm.
