 Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will end 2018 on a high note with a performance of his Top 10 and climbing single “Burning Man” during the finale of The Voice (12/18 at 7:00P CT on NBC). “The hard-charging track” (Newsday) is the second release form his No. One selling ninth studio album THE MOUNTAIN, which earned Bentley the highest first week sales of his career and follows his 17th career chart topper and “most affecting song” (Rolling Stone), “Woman, Amen.”

As Bentley co-wrote 10 of the album’s 13 tracks that are unified by themes of presence and positivity, critics continue to applaud “one of the most joyful, brazen, and cohesive collections of his career” (Entertainment Weekly). His “music that’s designed to challenge” (New York Times) has been featured as one of “2018 Best Albums” by EsquireUSA TodayRolling Stone,The Tennessean, Sounds Like Nashville and is one of the only Country albums on Billboard’s all-genre year end list. Additionally, the “downright euphoric” collaboration with Brandi Carlile, “Travelin’ Light,” landed on Esquire’s list for “Best Country Songs of 2018.” Just a few short months since its release, THE MOUNTAIN garnered multiple nominations including “Album of the Year” nods from the ACM and CMAs has been streamed more than 245 million times.

Outside of his 40-city tour trek, Bentley brought his love of the west to life by teaming up with Live Nation for the inaugural SEVEN PEAKS FESTIVAL in Buena Vista, CO over Labor Day weekend. The three-day festival included multiple stages and a campground set in front of the awe-inspiring collegiate peaks mountain range, creating one of the freshest and most eclectic Country music festivals. Bentley performed several times over the weekend, along with artists such as Miranda Lambert, Elle King, and the Del McCoury Band. 

“Nothing and no one can get in his way” (Elle Magazine) as Bentley created professional endeavors outside of the music industry after he partnered with Flag & Anthem to create an exclusive new lifestyle collection, Desert Son. With its name inspired by some of the more autobiographical lyrics off THE MOUNTAIN, the offering will features vintage-washed tees, raglans, hoodies and hats along with a handful of women’s tees. Bentley also expanded his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise this year with Riot Hospitality Group as its fourth location opened on Nashville’s Lower Broadway, the street Bentley called his second home when he first moved to Nashville to pursue music.

Pegged as “one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes), Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 8.6 billion overall digital streams. He continues the momentum next year with the launch of his 2019 BURNING MAN TOUR, which kicks of Jan. 17in Hamilton, ON, CAN, featuring special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and the Hot Country Knights. For more information visit www.dierks.com.
