Dierks Bentley will be honored with an exhibit at The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Bentley’s exhibit — “Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory, presented by Citi” — will open March 4th and run through Sept. 6th.
“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this,” Bentley said in a statement. “The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway. I’m going to have to go down there to see it for myself to really make it sink in.”
Dierks explores the most intimate and sometimes darkest corners of his relationship history with the upcoming release of his eighth studio album Black, set for early 2016. Dierks Bentley ignites country radio with the album’s lead single “Somewhere On A Beach” in correlation with the U.S. leg of his 2016 Somewhere on a Beach Tour beginning on May 12th in Holmdel, N.J. at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser along with special guests Cam and Tucker Beathard. Following the commercial success and critical respect from Riser, Bentley’s seven previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, notched 13 chart-topping singles, earned 13 Grammy nominations, countless CMA, ACM and CMT nominations and membership at the Grand Ole Opry for more than a decade. Additionally, Bentley has been tapped to co-host the 51st Academy of Country Music Awards where he earned two nominations.
The exhibition will include stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more from Bentley’s personal collection.
