During the country superstar and Arizona native’s set in Houston, Texas at RODEOHOUSTON on Sunday, March 13, Bentley’s oldest daughter, Evie, joined him for a special daddy/daughter moment onstage, where she showed that the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree as she belted out the lyrics while paying tribute to the legendary rock group from Texas, ZZ Top.
The father/daughter pair performed a cover of the fan-favorite tune in front of a sold-out crowd.
“That’s my daughter, Evie, she’s going to help me out on this one, give her a Texas sized welcome,” Bentley told the capacity crowd.

Co-written by Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard, “Gimme All Your Lovin'” is the first single from ZZ Top’s 1983 album, Eliminator.
Ahead of Bentley’s performance, he and his daughter chatted with Mark and Jay O’Shea from RODEOHOUSTON Unplugged.
When the O’Shea’s asked if Evie has seen the stage yet, she replied, “I have, it’s huge,” before gushing over how excited she was to get to perform with her dad on the star-shaped stage.
“She’s going to get up there and sing with us at the end, we’re thinking about doing one for a legendary Texas rock band,” Bentley shared before taking the stage at the world’s biggest rodeo. “So, well keep that a surprise, but, yeah I think we’ll do something together.”
“Yeah, it’s normal, I mean, it still feels different every time, but it’s super fun,” Evie shared, before admitting that performing on stage in front of 70,000+ people is “a little nerve-wracking.”
Evie Previously Shared The Stage With Her Father
Evie previously joined her superstar father on stage for a daddy/daughter duet of his chart-topping hit “Different For Girls,” which originally features Elle King.
Bentley opened up about his daughter’s musical talents during an interview with Good Morning America.
“Evie’s got a pretty special voice right now,” Bentley exclaimed, before explaining that they don’t really practice as he admits that Evie is just “a natural at it.”
“We don’t really practice or rehearse a bunch or probably do all the stuff we should do,” Bentley continued. “She’s just a kid and I like her doing kid stuff, but she’s got a great voice and stage presence, so she’ll jump out on stage sometimes and sing in front of 15,000 people…”
Bentley also shared that often times, he is more nervous than she is when performing in front of sold out crowds. However, he loves getting to share the stage with her.
“I’m more nervous than she is. She’s kind of a natural at it and it’s a special thing to get to share together,” the “Gone” singer added.
