We cannot wait to get back on the road!
"Who we bring with us on tour is so important to the band, crew and me and the addition of Tenille Townes is something we are all stoked about.

CD reviews for Dierks Bentley
Dierks Bentley seems intent on expanding his musical boundaries, but he may have overreached too much in eschewing where he came from.

Unfortunately, the atmospheric beats muddy up the vocal delivery on "Freedom," a song that stretches far too long at almost four minutes. Bentley also channels U2 with its »»»
Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest.

When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
