The reason behind Dierks Bentley‘s ban from the Opry may be one of the most surprising on this list. Unlike the other artists we’ll mention, Bentley’s Opry ban was actually handed down before he became a famous singer.
So how did Bentley manage to get in the Opry’s bad graces if he had never performed there before?Well, before his career took off, he worked as a researcher at a TV station calledThe Nashville Network.
Since he worked close to the Opry, Bentley would often sneak over there once he was off work and would find his way backstage to hang out with the artists who showed up.
The Opry eventually caught on to what Bentley was doing, and made him leave, telling him to never come back.But his ban didn’t last for long.
