Dierks Bentley Wraps Fall Tour, Plays The White House

Dierks Bentley with Eli Young Band

Dierks Bentley wrapped the first leg of his 2011 Country & Cold Cans Tour this weekend with sold out shows in Boise, Bozeman, and Denver. The tour featured Eli Young Band and Jerrod Neimann and will resume in February 2012 with first dates scheduled internationally in Canada and Australia.

“It has been a great run…the fans came ready to party. The crowd in Boise set a record for beer sales!” laughs Bentley. “I’d say that’s a pretty good way to wrap up this leg of the tour.”

Dierks was recently at the White House with Lauren Alaina, The Band Perry, Alison Krauss, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Darius Rucker, James Taylor and Mickey for a live-stream taping of PBS’ sixty-minute special, Country Music: In Performance at the White House, which will formally air on PBS Wednesday (11/23), at 7 PM/CT as previously posted by MusicRow.

“No matter who you vote for or what you believe, [The White House] is one of the greatest symbols of our country. It is our nation’s ‘Home,’” says Bentley. “I’m honored to have been asked to perform there, and when I sing this song, I will definitely be thinking about all of the men and women in the military.”

Bentley will also engage fans by releasing a customizable version of the official music video for “Home,” the title track from his upcoming album due February 7. Fans will have the ability to upload photos into the video and download or share virally from his official website. Customized videos can be created here.
