Maddie & Tae Say They Have Learned A Lot Touring With Dierks Bentley

Maddie & Tae hit the ground running this year with a No. 1 single debut and ACM and CMT nominations, and they don’t plan on slowing down any time soon!

The successful duo caught up with Glamour to talk about everything from their own personal love lives and tour, to growing up and changing.

Maddie & Tae toured this year with fellow country pal Dierks Bentley, which they said exceeded all their expectations.

“We have Dierks to thank for that. He’s just such an amazing, humble person, and the way he interacts with his fans, family, is really something special,” explained Tae. We have a month left [on tour], so whenever we finish we’re going to be so sad, but we’ve learned a lot. We’ll take everything we’ve learned towards our Start Here tour in the fall.”

When it comes to love, both girls have boyfriends. Tae is dating country singer Jackie Lee. The love story started when he opened up for the girls.

“I’m never one to introduce myself to someone randomly, but I walk in and met him at the end of the stage and was like, “Hi, my name’s Tae.” He said, “Hi, I’m Jackie,” and that was it. After the show, he just so happened to be staying at the same hotel, and we stayed up in the lobby till 4 A.M. just talking. The rest is history!”

Meanwhile, Maddie meant her significant other back in high school.

“We met in high school. We were together my sophomore year, and then broke up for a year and did not talk to each other. It was so hard when we broke up because we were both still into each other but had to pretend like we weren’t,” she explained. “Then our senior year, [we] started to talk again. He was my person. He was a completely different guy, so grown up and knew what he wanted to do [in life]. I was like, “This is the person I want to invest time in!” I could not ask for a more perfect person to do life with.”

The foursome get together as much as they can.

“It’s good to have people that are really grounded like that in your life,” said Maddie.

Dierks Bentley Fan’s “Riser” Story Goes Viral

Dierks Bentley 2

Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley’s epic anthem “Riser” has an everyman quality and powerful message that continues to resonates with fans. Night after night on the road, fans share their personal stories on what being a “Riser” means, but this week, it was a letter from a fan named Gihee Chang that caught Bentley’s attention.

Dierks Bentley

“I cried the first time I heard your song ‘Riser.’ I’ve never had that reaction from a song,’” wrote Chang.  “The lyrics reminded me so much of my dad. My dad brought us to America from South Korea, so his family could have a better life. When we arrived to this country, no-one in my family could speak, read or understand English…my dad never let us know how scared he was, having to provide for his family of five. He never gave up…his hard work paid off. Ten years later he was offered a great job as an Engineer at Boeing. His three daughters all graduated from college…he achieved his American dream. My dad has Alzheimer’s now. He can barely speak and his once strong body is now frail. But in my eyes, he is still a Riser.”

Chang’s colleagues at CBS2/KCAL9 noticed Bentley posted her letter on social media this week and surprised her with an opportunity to meet Bentley at his SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR stop at Save Mart Center at Fresno last night (8/20). To watch Chang share her inspiring story with Bentley, click here.

“Riser” serves as the new single and exclamation point to Bentley’s CMA, ACM and GRAMMY nominated album by the same name, which has already spawned three consecutive No. one’s at country radio. Bentley is set to continue on his headlining 2015 SOUNDS OF SUMMER TOUR this weekend in Mountain View, CA (8/21), Sacramento, CA (8/22) and Stateline, NV (8/23).

Dierks Bentley’s Miles & Music Sells Out in Minutes!

dierks mm2015

Within 30 minutes this morning, fans eagerly snatched every ticket to Dierks Bentley‘s 10th Annual “Miles & Music For Kids” celebrity motorcycle ride and concert. Kicking off CMA Awards week on Nov. 1 in Nashville, TN, the event will closeout the outdoor concert season at the new Ascend Amphitheater with a stellar concert lineup including Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three, Canaan Smith, Brooke Eden and emcee Storme Warren. All proceeds benefit Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

“I thought we would have a good turnout, but to sell out Ascend in minutes is crazy! It really speaks to the passion that country fans have for causes that are important to their community. I feel honored that ‘Miles & Music’ is one of them,” shares Bentley. “Every year, the biker community has also been there for us, helping raise money for these kids…they are definitely some of the most giving people out there. So, we are holding back a few extra tickets to be sure anyone who wants to ride on Nov. 1 into downtown can jump on their bikes and join us. It’ll be pretty unreal to cruise into a sold-out amphitheater reminiscing about everyone who has helped make the last 10 years so huge – I can’t wait!”

Over the course of the event’s history, Bentley has raised more than $3 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals across the country. Due to their ongoing support, advance purchase tickets have been held for riders and a very limited number will be available for walk up purchase at Harley-Davidson of Columbia on a first come, first served basis the day of the event. You must be a rider planning to participate in the ride, to purchase these tickets. For more information, visit
