CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist DIERKS BENTLEY has announced tour dates for his “Up On The Ridge Tour,” which kicks off APRIL 21st in PORTLAND, OR. DIERKS, who is releasing a bluegrass-inspired album this SUMMER, will be joined by backing band the TRAVELIN’ McCOURYS and TEXAS-based singer HAYES CARLL for the tour. The “Up On The Ridge Tour” will hit venues from small rock clubs to bluegrass festivals and BENTLEY will preview new music from upcoming bluegrass album at the stops as well as perform his biggest hits.
DIERKS said: “The only way I know to explain what this new album is to all the fans is to just get out on the road and play it for them. I’ve been rehearsing and working on set lists already … every show is going to be different and really special. There aren’t any better acoustic musicians in the world than the TRAVELIN’ McCOURYS, period. And I’ve been a big fan of HAYES for a long time. It’ll be a total blast … I’m already plotting and planning on how to fit more dates into the schedule!”
Tickets for most of the 24 shows of the tour go on sale FRIDAY (3/19). Check out www.dierks.com for more ticket info and to see full tour dates.
