Since first being thrust into the spotlight in 2003, Dierks Bentley has gone on to become one of the most popular names in current country music. Under Capitol Records Nashville, Bentley released his self-titled debut album, off of which the first single “What Was I Thinkin’” hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot Country chart. Since then, he’s released a total of 9 studio albums that have proven him to be one of the most distinctive and versatile of today’s country artists. He’s been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, won the Academy of Country Music award for Top New Artist, and taken CMA awards for hit singles such as “Drunk on a Plane” and “Different for Girls,” that latter of which featured the bluesy stylings of singer-songwriter Elle King. With Bentley’s reputation for being one of the most dynamic artists in the industry, it’s no surprise that tickets for his concerts are a hot commodity for lovers of all country genres.
Born in Phoenix, Dierks Bentley inherited a love of music from his father, picking up his first guitar at the age of 13. After graduating from a prestigious college prep school in New Jersey and attending Vanderbilt University in Nashville, he ultimately dropped of the college to pursue music full-time. But the Nashville music scene didn’t exactly welcome him with open arms, so he turned to bluegrass to help distinguish his own sound. After a few years of playing bars and parties, he signed with Capitol Records, released his first album, and later became the youngest member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 29. Subsequent albums such as Modern Day Drifter, Up on the Ridge, Riser, and Black have drawn in fans with their unique combination of classic country, bluegrass, rock, and contemporary sounds. He’s toured with other big name stars such as Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, and Brad Paisley, and in 2018, will hit the road again in promotion of his most recent album, The Mountain.
