DIERKS BENTLEY IS HAILED BY CRITICS FOR SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR.

ce1652dc3a9baf820b65cb98_216x156d233228f83e002542296a20f_234x156

Three weeks into country music superstar Dierks Bentley’s 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR, music critics in major markets across the U.S. are applauding the PLATINUM seller as he engages capacity amphitheater crowds, delivering epic performances and “memories that will last a lifetime.”

“Yes, the crowd sings along with every word. Yes, he pulls female fans dressed as flight attendants up on the stage with him. And yes, we all wanted more.” – St. Louis Dispatch

“Bentley has had a long, steady climb to Chesney heights, which he has finally reached in the form of a headlining package tour and all its accouterments…onstage, Bentley was as exuberant as ever, roaming and high-fiving, running up to a tiny stage set in the cheap seats for a handful of songs, doing a little crowd surfing. Judging from his performance, Dierks Bentley is enjoying the view from the top.”  - The Boston Globe

“Bentley lost no time engaging himself with fans…from there, it was a total country singalong party, with the audience following along to nearly every of Bentley’s dozen-year hit catalog, ranging from 2003’s ‘What Was I Thinkin” all the way to his current single, ‘Riser.’” - Yahoo!

“Cleveland has always had an affection for the Arizona-born singer-songwriter with the expressive Everyman voice…his ability to convey that kind of “I can relate” emotions are what make Dierks Bentley a special kind of performer.” - The Plain Dealer

Additionally, Bentley was the inaugural headliner at New York City’s first-ever country festival this weekend, with Rolling Stone naming him FarmBorough’s “Best of the Fest,” observing his set provides “levity to his victory lap of a performance.” Village Voice simultaneously handpicked Bentley’s set as a Top 10 highlight, noting “Bentley’s set solidified him as the artist you most want to have a beer with.”

Bentley’s 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR lands over the holiday weekend in Tampa, FL (7/2) and West Palm Beach, FL (7/3) before his performance on NBC’s annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular (7/4 at 7:00P CT on NBC).

Luke Bryan (Farm Tour) 1 OC: …for the fans. :59
“Farm Tour is just fun to me, and it’s something that anytime you can start something that starts small and grow it. We never want to make it this really ginormous thing that we can’t control, but we want to make sure it’s on our terms and we love doing it. And then we want to make sure that the communities that we partner up with from the sheriff’s office to the highway patrol guys to the colleges to the college kids, we want to make sure it’s a positive thing  at the end of the day for the communities. Therefore, that’s why we do the scholarships and we hope that we leave these places better than we found ‘em, and we hope people continue to want us back. And we hope we feel like we’re a positive thing for the local economies for these small towns, which wouldn’t necessarily have 15, 20-thousand people converging on ‘em. I hope it’s a positive thing for ‘em and not a negative. I enjoy being out there [performing in] the field and playing for the fans.”

About Easton Corbin:

“Easton Corbin has one of those rare, glorious voices that was made—just made—for singing country music.” –American Songwriter

With two No. 1 singles, multiple awards and nominations, plus performances on some of the biggest stages in the world, Mercury Nashville’s Easton Corbin has made a lasting impression on the country music landscape. He became the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1 with his unapologetic traditional sound in the spirit of Alan Jackson and George Strait, but with a vocal twist that only Easton can deliver. A devotee of Alan, George and Keith Whitley, Easton is the genre’s biggest torchbearer for the neo-traditional movement. Easton’s third album About To Get Real features his current top 5 single “Baby Be My Love Song” which continues to climb the country airplay charts.

EASTON CORBIN PUT TOGETHER A BEAUTIFUL PUZZLE FOR HIS LATEST ALBUM, ABOUT TO GET REAL.

Easton Corbin worked on About to Get Real for a while and finished the project at some point last year. However, he and his producer Carson Chamberlain went back in to record a few more songs, which ended up making the record.

“We felt like so much time has passed, we should go out and beat the bushes, for, I guess you’d say for lack of better terms, and see if there were any other songs out there that were as good or better, because these writers are writing every day great songs, and we did. And we came across three songs called ‘Guys and Girls,’ ‘Diggin’ on You’ and ‘Yup.’ I feel like these three songs really complete this record. So, we took off three existing songs we had cut and replaced them with these three songs,” says Easton. “I feel like that when you have a body of work it’s almost like putting a puzzle together, especially sequencing and the body of work as a whole. And I feel like that all these songs together as a whole really complement each other.”

Easton’s album, About to Get Real, features his latest Top 5 single, “Baby Be My Love Song.”

Audio / Easton Corbin says he and his producer Carson Chamberlain really worked hard to put together his new album, About to Get Real.

“We finished this record probably a year ago, and it was complete, and it was a great record. But we felt like so much time has passed, we should go out and beat the bushes, for, I guess you’d say for lack of better terms, and see if there were any other songs out there that were as good or better, because these writers are writing every day great songs, and we did.

I feel like that when you have a body of work it’s almost like putting a puzzle together, especially sequencing and the body of work as a whole. And I feel like that all these songs together as a whole really complement each other.”

EASTON CORBIN IS ‘ABOUT TO GET REAL.’

Easton Corbin is about to release his new album, About to Get Real, on Tuesday (June 30th), and he feels it’s a good balance between his traditional country roots and keeping it fresh.

“As an artist, you grow and within that growth process, you do your best to make it current and young, but also with that you stay true to your roots and you have to be real about that. For me, it’s keeping that traditional country element in my songs, but also keeping it fresh. It’s a balance, and I think we’ve done that well with this record.”

About to Get Real features Easton’s current single, “Baby Be My Love Song,” as well as three songs he had a hand in writing.

On release day, Easton will be making the media rounds, but will also be rounding the bases. He’s set to perform an acoustic set at the New York Mets game on Tuesday.

Audio / Easton Corbin says About to Get Real is a great title for his new album.

For me, it’s keeping that traditional country element in my songs, but also keeping it fresh. It’s a balance, and I think we’ve done that well with this record.”
