Dierks Bentley returned to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday (8/26) with his BEERS ON ME TOUR where he “brought the capacity crowd to its feet for a stomping, kicking and screaming celebration,” (The Tennessean). For more than two hours Music City took in Bentley’s three dozen song setlist that featured fan-favorites and collaborations with openers Dustin Lynch (“Beers On Me), Elvie Shane (“Bad Angel”) and DJ Aydamn (“5-1-5-0”). His bright new single “Gold” double-downed as a special moment for Bentley as he sang about gratitude, presence and the treasures found in the moment that you are in. “Gold” is available at all digital retailers here.
Highlights from the night also included a cover of Charlies Daniels’ “The Devil Went Down to Georgia” as its instrumentation was heightened by band member Charlie Worsham who has joined Bentley on the road all summer. Bentley also turned his hometown show into a familiar affair as his daughters, Evie and Jordan, joined him onstage for a special rendition of P!nk’s “All I Know So Far,” who recently tweeted her stamp of approval. Additionally, his son Knox had the arena rattling with his dance moves during “Drunk On A Plane.”
This Labor Day Weekend (Sept 2-4) weekend, Bentley will “put on a show worth the drive” (Denver Post) as his SEVEN PEAKS MUSIC FESTIVAL returns to a new scenic setting of San Luis Valley in Villa Grove, CO. The “can’t miss” (Esquire) event of the summer, where he will headline along with Morgan Wallen also includes additional main stage performances by Boy Named Banjo, Ashley Cooke, Jordan Davis, Jackson Dean, Travis Denning, HARDY, Kendell Marvel, Ashley McBryde, Old Crow Medicine Show, Caitlyn Smith, Rapidgrass, Alana Springsteen and Lainey Wilson.

That 10th album landmark speaks to how time has flown in Bentley’s unique, 21st-century career. He landed his first publishing deal in 2001 and released his debut album in 2003, producing an instant No. One single. The years since have revealed a rare consistency that’s fueled longevity – eight more albums that reached the top of the Country sales charts, resulting in 21 No. One songs, 6.4 billion streams, three CMA Awards, 14 GRAMMY® nominations and membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Trendy sounds have ebbed and flowed around him over these two decades, but fans have relied on Bentley for something more nourishing and individual. The new single “Gold” promises a landmark album that will build on that enviable legacy. For more information, visit www.Dierks.com.
