DIERKS BENTLEY HITS RADIO AIRWAVES TODAY WITH NEW SINGLE “WHAT THE HELL DID I SAY”

 

DIERKS BENTLEY HITS RADIO AIRWAVES TODAY
WITH NEW SINGLE “WHAT THE HELL DID I SAY”

“With Energy Explosively High All Night Long” Bentley’s 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR Has
Already Entertained More Than Half a Million Fans As Summer Concert Season Kicks Into Full Gear

NASHVILLE, TN – Jun. 26, 2017 – Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley released “What the Hell Did I Say” today as the fourth single from his critically acclaimed and top selling album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville). The infectious track follows three consecutive No. Ones from the album, including the GOLD certified title-track and the PLATINUM certified hits “Somewhere On A Beach” and “Different For Girls,” proving once again Bentley’s “effortless balance of radio-ready polish, traditional flavor and artistry” (Houston Chronicle).

“We named the tour after this song hoping that it would be a single this summer because it perfectly captures the anything-goes spirit out there this year,” said Bentley. “It’s crazy right now with Cole and Pardi…every night is better than the one before…just when you think it can’t get any more fun, it does. I’ve worked my whole career to have a tour like this one.”

As the song that inspired this year’s tour hits radio and summer touring season kicks off, more than half a million fans have already flooded sold-out arenas across North America in 2017 for Bentley’s “live show that tends to double down on fun.” (The Boston Globe).

The Washington Post vouches “he just gets us,” as he gives fans an array of “chances to blow off steam during his action-packed summer tour.”

“Has always been one of Country’s most engaging performers…with enough hits to fill an entire set.” – Asbury Park Press

“His fans couldn’t get enough of him. And now it appears that the feeling is mutual.” – CMT

“Promised a party…he delivered that and then some.” – Fresno Bee

“He plays to the entire crowd and has more energy than most young children.” – Parade

“With one foot planted on the country side and the other tapping along the rock and roll side, Dierks Bentley roared with a fun, solid two hours of his hits old and new.” – The Sun Chronicle

“With energy explosively high all night long….he’s startlingly theatrical and takes every opportunity he can to play with his audience.” – The Post-Standard

“Especially over the past half-dozen years, he has been one of mainstream country’s more adventurous artists. ” – Edmonton Journal

“The role of up-for-anything party-starter that has long seemed to fit him like a glove” – Tampa Bay Times

“His voice projecting all the way to the fans in the back of the venue who raised their arms up high, singing and swaying along. – OC Register

Bentley’s 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi returns to the road with stops in Jacksonville, FL (7/13), Raleigh, NC (7/14) and Virginia Beach, VA (7/15). For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.dierks.com.

Coyote CountryFest returns to the Orleans Arena Aug. 13

Coyote CountryFest returns to the Orleans Arena Aug. 13 
Lineup features Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Love and Theft and more

The annual country all-star concert Coyote CountryFest (presented by 102.7 The Coyote) returns to Orleans Arena on Saturday, Aug. 13, with performances from Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Love and Theft, Brett Young and Sierra Black.

Georgia native Cole Swindell’s rise to fame began as a songwriter for country music stars Luke Bryan, Chris Young and Florida Georgia Line, among others. His songwriting success opened doors for him to pursue a career as performing artist himself, and in 2013, he released his debut single “Chillin’ It.” In February 2014, Swindell released a self-titled album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and produced two more Top 10 country singles: “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” In 2015, he released an EP featuring the song “You Should Be Here,” which reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country chart. In May 2016, Swindell released his second full-length album titled “You Should Be Here.”

Jon Pardi is best known for his high-energy performances and “rowdy” approach to country music. He hit the scene with his debut single “Missin’ You Crazy” in 2012. A year later, his second single “Up All Night” became his first Top 10 hit. He found additional success on the charts with songs like “Head Over Boots,” “When I’ve Been Drinkin’” and “Up All Night.”

Since hitting the country music scene in 2009 with their debut album, country duo Love and Theft has produced several top 10 hits and released three albums. Best known for their #1 single “Angel Eyes,” the group has also earned nominations and accolades for their singles “Runnin’ Out of Air,” “Runaway,” “Whiskey on My Breath” and more.

Country music up-and-comer Brett Young released his debut EP earlier this year, with the single “Sleep Without You” cracking the US Country Charts. Young was recently named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.”

Las Vegas native Sierra Black hit the country music scene as an opening act for country greats like Joe Nichols, Little Big Town and more. Last year, she had the honor of performing a duet with Keith Urban, who hand-picked her for a performance of “We Were Us.” She is currently working on her debut EP and released her first single, “Heart on Ice,” earlier this year.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available from $20 plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena Box Office at 702.284.7777 or by visiting www.orleansarena.com.
