About Dierks Bentley
Multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley is "notorious for his spectacular, high-energy live performances loaded with lots of fan interaction" (Creative Loafing) with 17 #1 hits, more than 1 billion digital streams and countless ACM nominations. Bentley has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and "continues to challenge himself" (Billboard), which is evident through his upcoming ninth studio album, The Mountain, due out later this year. Its lead single "Woman, Amen" gives a taste of the record's "themes of questing and self-actualization across a wide-open terrain of arid deserts and rugged ridgelines, cactus flowers and tumbleweeds" (NPR). With his 2017 World Tour claiming the top spot on Billboard's Hot Tours and selling over 750,000 tickets, Bentley will fuel arenas and amphitheaters throughout the summer with his 2018 Mountain High Tour, launching May 18 in Columbia, Md.
