As reported by THE BOOT blog, CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY, is planning to release a Bluegrass album and a new Country CD next year. He will spend much of JANUARY through MARCH 2010 writing and recording these new projects.
DIERKS said: "NASHVILLE is my hometown; I've been here 15 years, so I know a bunch of the grassers, a lot of the country guys, a lot of songwriters and musicians. Every album I've done has a Bluegrass song on it, so it's not a surprise that one day I might make a Bluegrass record. It would be a cool thing for me."
DIERKS also said he would like to do another of his "High Times and Hangovers" tours with CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED before heading out on a major tour again.
"That's where we go out and do small rock bars and get down and dirty but this will be the first time CODY (CODY CANADA, lead singer for CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED) hears about it because I haven't called him about doing it. I'd like to do that with them sometime in the SPRING, then hit the fairs and festivals in the summer and do a headline tour next fall."
