Posted on 28 July 2012 by editor

Award winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley is raising a glass to the end of summer with the release of a four song EP titled COUNTRY & COLD CANS at iTunes on Aug. 21. Produced by Jaren Johnston, the EP was inspired by the crowd-favorite title track and tour by the same name that recently wrapped legs in the U.S., Canada and Australia.

With the help of college students, Bentley will kick tailgating season off at three SEC campuses to celebrate the new music in a limited COUNTRY AND COLD CANS: BACK TO COLLEGE TOUR with special guest, The Cadillac Black. The tour begins at The University of Georgia (8/20) and continues to The University of South Carolina (8/21) and culminates in The Grove at The University of Mississippi (8/22). Tickets are available to fan club members beginning today and the general public on Friday beginning at 10:00A ET, for ticket information visit Dierks.com.

“We thought we’d celebrate the end of summer and back to school with an EP of new material that’s about cutting loose…it was really inspired by how young and crazy the fans on the Country & Cold Cans Tour were earlier this year,” said Bentley. “I’ve written a lot with Jaren, and we thought it would be fun to get the guys in my band and a couple of cases of beer and go see what happens in the studio. I’m really happy with the tracks, and I think our crowd will dig it.”

COUNTRY & COLD CANS EP Track List:

1. Country & Cold Cans

2. Grab A Beer

3. Back Porch

4. Summer On Fire

5. Tip It On Back

Bentley’s current sixth studio album HOME debuted at No. one on Billboard Country Albums chart earlier this year and has already earned three No. one hits at country radio “Am I The Only One,” “Home” and “5-1-5-0” for a career total of 10 No. one hits as an artist and songwriter.

Home – Dierks Bentley Album Review

Posted on 07 February 2012 by editor



Dierks Bentley returns to mainstream country with a sharp new album titled after the bells ringing’ inspirational – custom made to sync with this year’s fireworks on the 4th of July –  hit Home.    The new release follows Bentley’s 2010 bluegrass effort Up on the Ridge.    Critically acclaimed but not radio friendly.

Conversely Home has alot for conrey radio to love.  He arrives at release day with two big hits baked in.  The party anthem Am I The Only One as well as the patriotic Home.    There’s more to come on the collection too.  Breathe You In is perfect for his smitten female fans and 5150 is just silly enough to be really memorable.   Bluegrass fans will appreciate the jangle in Heart Of A Lonely Girl and country loving parents will melt when they heard Dierk’s daughter’s voice on Thinking of You (keep listening to the end).

Home is a winner and Dierks is back to lead the new country pack.

Here’s the track by Track:

1. “Am I The Only One”Home Album Cover

2. “Gonna Die Young”

3. “Tip It On Back”

4. “Home”

5. “Diamonds Make Babies”

6. “In My Head”

7. “Breathe You In”

8. “The Woods”

9. “When You Gonna Come Around”

10. “5-1-5-0″

11. “Heart of a Lonely Girl”

12. “Thinking of You”

CD Review: Dierks Feels The Fire

Posted on 08 February 2009 by Bill West

Dierks Bentley broke out of the chute fast a few years back when he released his debut song “What Was I Thinkin’” and it shot to number one. Bentley’s back with his latest release Feel That Fire
and he’s still working hard to make his mark.

Bentley finds his sound on a few songs here.. but overall he misses on many of the tracks. Most of them seem sonically flat despite his unique, gritty vocals and honest attempt to twang. This is his 6th CD (including a live and a greatest hits) and the material seems unexcitingly familiar.
As much reverence as Bentley carries for country music there is still something that makes a few of the tunes here more pop garage band appeal than country appeal. From the chorus of “Sideways” to the forced fun “Little Heartwrecker” (new term even spell check couldn’t find) there’s just something that strays from the county core. Big picture it’s not all about the honky tonk and tank tops for a lot of country fans.
That said, there are enough gems to keep him on the forefront of country music for a while. The lead single “Feel That Fire” continues to develop fans and the previously mentioned “Sideways” is fun and could have radio potential.
The cowboy-tex-mex “I Can’t Forget Her” strikes a new vibe for Dierks that really sounds fantastic. My hope is that he can steer more towards Strait and away from a Rascal Flatts feel. “Beautiful World” is also a fine showcase of his special vocal styling. The simplicity of the lyrics (and a cameo fom Patty Griffin) makes this a great choice for radio.Gold star to Bentley for co writing on all except two tunes on the disk but it would be nice to get a bit more outside influence.
Overall Grade: C+
Don’t Miss: “Beautiful World” (perfect fit for his voice and these times)
Hit Next: “Little Heartwrecker” is a bit forced.
