Dierks BentleyFrederick Dierks Bentley 2 (born November 20, 1975 1 ) is an American country music singer and songwriter. An embarrassed country music star Dierks Bentley tweeted a video on Labor Day showing the singer getting cited by a Colorado Parks and Wildlife officer for fishing without a license.

I met Steve years ago when our publishers at the time set us up on a co-write (aka blind date for songwriters). We had drumming and aviation in common (I used to drum and my dad is a pilot). He spends a lot of days on the road drumming for Dierks Bentley, so when he was off the road for a few days recently I was able to get him out to the house for a Cathead Vodka Mississippi Mule and a little chat.

And that was just the first of four songs Bentley shared from his latest release. He also played the title track, “Woman, Amen” and “Living,” the song he set up with that speech about living.

The Draft Main Stage location will be at First and Broadway. Free and open to the public to view Draft selections and the McGraw show. Draft picks on Main Stage will take place evenings of April 25 (Thursday) and April 26 (Friday) and during the afternoon of April 27 (Saturday).

Stations can air Westwood One’s Labor Day holiday special Workin’ Hard Country with Dierks Bentley anytime Saturday, Aug. 31 through Monday, Sept. 2, between 6 a.m. and midnight.

The rest of the set was an entertaining mix of longtime Bentley concert staples, including such crowd-pleasing highlights as “What Was I Thinkin’,” “Sideways” and the encore-closing “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go),” and highlights of his four most recent albums.

On Sept. 29, 2015, Bentley celebrated his 10th anniversary as an Opry member with a 30-minute set at the Grand Ole Opry. He was also presented, by Bill Anderson , with a special print commemorating the occasion.

Luke Bryan was among the superstars who gathered at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville on Tuesday (September 10th) to remember the late Earl Thomas Conley. Blake Shelton, who organized the memorial and a huge fan of ETC, Jason Aldean, Joe Diffie, Neal McCoy, Wade Hayes and John Anderson also performed.

Multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley is slated to headline the first ever outdoor concert held at The US Military Academy’s historical football stadium, known as Michie Stadium.” Presented by West Point Family & MWR and Army West Point Athletics, the Fall concert is scheduled to take place Friday, October 18, during peak foliage in the Hudson River Valley.

When I step on site at a venue, I start talking to people around 4:45 in the afternoon. And the show is over at 11, but I do three shows in one: a bluegrass show at 6:45, a ‘90s country cover band at 7, and my real show after that. And then I end up talking to fans and hearing heavy stories about how someone has cancer, but one of my songs has changed their life. Things get tipped so far in the social direction, I have to tip the scales back. And being alone — back in the hotel room or flying — is one way to do that.

Dierks Bentley scored the 19th No. 1 single of his career as Living” ascended to the top spot on both the Mediabase chart and Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

He’s not happily anticipating the meeting. He’s too busy thinking about the tour and The Mountain,” the album he released last year that continues to generate hit songs.

McGraw has had 43 number one radio singles, 16 number one albums and countless industry awards and accolades. McGraw recently performed for the NFL’s official Tailgate party at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

And to be honest, Bentley’s batteries did not appear to need much of a recharge. He recently finished a headlining tour in support of “The Mountain,” which became his fourth consecutive release to top the Billboard country charts.

Rayland Baxter’s spectacular new album, ‘Wide Awake’ infuses Baxter’s easygoing, soulful sound with British Invasion melodies and rock and roll swagger, marrying lean, muscular songwriting with adventurous, inventive arrangements. His music has earned Baxter festival appearances from Bonnaroo to Newport Folk in addition to tours with an astonishing array of artists, including Jason Isbell, The Lumineers, Kacey Musgraves, The Head and The Heart, Shakey Graves, Lauryn Hill, and Grace Potter.

Downtown Nashville’s Lower Broadway and the area outside Nissan Stadium will host free, public activities for the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville April 25-27. The 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville will continue the NFL’s centennial season celebration that kicked off at Super Bowl LIII in February. The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp, in partnership with the Tennessee Titans, led the bid process for the NFL Draft on behalf of the city.

The time has come for Dierks Bentley to begin work on a new studio album, if he wants to keep the pace he has established over the last decade of releasing a new one every other year.

The production team decamped at one point for Brooklyn, New York, where Dierks spent a magical three days recording with the Punch Brothers, arguably the most innovative and technically complete pickers in acoustic music. He matched voices beautifully on Bob Dylan’s rippling and subversive Senor.” And he and Stewart pulled off the coup of the album – a searing vocal duet with Del McCoury on U2’s Pride (In The Name of Love)” over the Punch Brothers exquisitely arranged soundscape – one of the great acts of group interpretation of a standard you’ll ever hear.

Previously announced, GRAMMY-winner Tim McGraw will headline for the NFL Draft on Friday, April 26 and GRAMMY-winning gospel music great CeCe Winans will sing the National Anthem to help open NFL Draft activities on Thursday, April 25.

His band have a great rapport and really jam out during a country-fied version of Bon Jovi’s ‘Living On A Prayer’ which keeps the audience singing at the top of their voices. Rounding the show off with a selection of his biggest hits such as ‘Come A Little Closer’ and ‘I Hold On’ keeps the crowd cheering until the final reverberated guitar note had faded away. Returning for an encore, the whole crowd erupts in cheers as Bentley cheekily runs back onstage and rips into a couple more of his guitar heavy country hits before taking his final bow and thanking his fans.

Accepting change – and growing from it – is a key theme in RISER, and it is reflected by the tone of the album, which demonstrates a new artistic depth and an extra level of intensity for Bentley. It evolves from track to track, exuding a range of emotions, all the while impressing upon the listener that Bentley’s instinct for a hit is stronger than ever. Bentley made significant reconfigurations in his creative team to shake up his sonic texture without sacrificing his commercial drive. He re-enlisted executive producer Arturo Buenahora, Jr., who worked on Bentley’s first two albums; and utilized producer Ross Copperman, who co-wrote Tip It On Back” for Bentley’s previous album Home.

Vocal powerhouse Jason Eskridge has worked either as a background vocalist or opening act for countless award-winning acts such as Zac Brown Band, Lyle Lovett, Randy Travis, Jonny Lang, Amos Lee, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo’, Nicole C. Mullen, Marc Broussard, Robert Glasper, Chris Tomlin, Toby Mac, and Crowder. He has also been featured as a guest vocalist on numerous projects. Jason has traveled across the country playing various venues for anyone who has a listening ear. He has also had the opportunity to take his music abroad to Japan, South Africa, Amsterdam, India, and England. Jason’s latest release is entitled “Live in Nashville” and he is currently working on a new project.

Per the interview, the mountain getaway suits Bentley’s love of the outdoors while allowing him to plan a fan and artist-friendly experience. Living” follows back-to-back No. 1 singles, Burning Man” and Woman, Amen,” from Dierks’ 2018 album, The Mountain.

At an event he co-founded, Seven Peaks Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado, Bentley and fellow headliner Luke Bryan discussed from stage their biggest catches during a weekend of fishing , camping and country music.

First time at Darien Lake for a concert. Definitely will go back. Dierks put on a great show as usual. Would definitely recommend going to see him live. Have seen him twice now, and both time had great bands open for him.

In an interview with Billboard, Bentley says: The dream is to write and record songs that are authentically personal to me, but also have commercial success; I want both. Usually, you wind up with a little bit of one and a little bit of the other. But with ‘Living,’ I got it both ways.


Country music star Dierks Bentley is living the best of both worlds. Austin Burke performs on Saturday, Apr. 13, 2019, during Day 3 of Country Thunder Arizona in Florence, Ariz.

On Friday, Aug. 23, the singer-songwriter is bringing his high-energy performance to the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park. The Chicago area holds a special place in Bentley’s heart, he says, pointing to memories of playing a major show with Kenny Chesney early in his career, and becoming one of the first country artists to perform at Lollapalooza, and cheering on his wife while she ran the marathon.

Dierks Bentley, the Arizona born heartthrob has been appearing consistently on the US country chart since the release of his self-titled debut in 2003. Having achieved huge commerciality in the States and a handful of number ones on the country charts he has amassed a huge following and plays arenas globally.

The 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville is expected to be the largest event in Nashville and the State of Tennessee given the anticipated attendance over three days, national networks and media coverage.


Dierks Bentley takes the traditional themes of country music to heart as he creates modern tunes. From his self-titled debut in 2003 that featured the No. 1 What Was I Thinkin’?” to his most recent CD featuring the No. 1 Every Mile a Memory,” Bentley has been able to win fans while staying true to his Outlaw Country and bluegrass roots.
