The crowd at LP Field was dedicated to Dierks Bentley, and they showed up with signs and billboards to support the '5-1-5-0' singer during his set at the CMA Music Festival in June. Bentley performed his hit for ABC cameras, and on Monday night, fans who couldn't get to Nashville got to see the results on the 'Country's Night to Rock' special.
Despite being outnumbered 3-to-1, Craig Campbell had no trouble knocking off Gloriana during yesterday's Showdown. His new song 'Outta My Head' is proving to be a hit with fans. He's called upon them to support the first single from his upcoming album and they've responded in large numbers. That means more airplay for Campbell tonight on Taste of Country Nights radio as he takes on a new challenger.
The best songs on country radio typically stem from co-writes where everybody has a good time. That was the case for Dierks Bentley's 'Tip It on Back' lyrics. Penned by Tully Kennedy (who is also the bass player in Jason Aldean's live and studio band, as well as co-producer of Thompson Square), Jon Nite and Ross Copperman, the tune came to life as the latest single from Bentley's 'Home' album.
Eric Church and Dierks Bentley are just two of more than a dozen artists slated to pay tribute to Levon Helm with 'Love for Levon,' a star-studded benefit concert that will help support the eternal legacy of the late musician by allowing his estate keep ownership of his home, barn and studio, and to continue the Midnight Ramble Sessions.
EPs are often like movie sequels in that they often feel like a ploy to make a few dollars instead of a chance for an artist to expand upon a theme. Much like 'Empire Strikes Back,' and more recently, 'Toy Story 2', Dierks Bentley's 'Country and Cold Cans' proves to be an exception.
It's something that every artist dreams about, but now Dierks Bentley doesn't have to dream anymore because it's a reality. This week (Aug. 16), Bentley and his band played to a sold out crowd at Morrison, Colo.'s iconic Red Rocks Amphithetre to a total of 9,450 fans who came to party.
Summer will round out nicely for the Cadillac Black, who have just signed on to open some shows for Dierks Bentley. Bentley's Back to College Tour will have him -- and TCB -- hitting SEC campuses at the end of August.
Dierks Bentley has done something interesting with his new single 'Tip It on Back' from the 'Home' album. The singer marries the spirit of songs like 'Free and Easy' -- and more recently, 'Am I the Only One' -- with the sexy pace of his most famous ballads (think 'Come a Little Closer' and 'Feel That Fire').
Dierks Bentley will have the honors of hosting the upcoming sixth-annual ACM Honors event, which take place at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium on September 24, 2012. The evening is dedicated to recognizing award recipients and special honorees in the non-televised categories of the Academy of Country Music Awards.
