Dierks Bentley will be headlining the 2011 Jagermeister Country Tour. The tour will blanket 30 cities through the US, beginning on March 17 and closing on May 13. Road warrior Josh Thompson -- who played an impressive 240 shows last year, and the brand new duo Miss Willie Brown -- who are recording their  debut in Nashville with Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band) after having met while waiting tables in Los Angeles and bonding over their love of country -- will provide opening act support.

As is Jager tour custom, a local, Jager-sponsored country act will open every date to keep things interesting. Tickets go on sale on Jan. 21.

"It's a good thing we've got a video crew on the road with us capturing everything that goes down," Bentley says in a statement. "Putting my band, Josh Thompson, the Miss Willie Brown girls and a few thousand fans in a Jagermeister- sponsored room with loud country music sounds like a pretty solid recipe for a great night!"

This tour is special not only because Bentley is headlining, but also because it’s Jager’s 20th music tour, so congrats to the brand for its continued success in the music sphere.

In other news, Bentley is currently in Nashville working on his next album. The single is expected to land this spring. He will post snippets of the recording process here.
