Dierks Bentley will continue his Country & Cold Cans Tour this spring with stops in 20 cities across the country. Eli Young Band and a combination of Will Hoge and The Cadillac Black will join him as special guests. The tour kicks off in Los Angeles on April 13. Tickets for the date go on sale February 10 with more tour and on sale dates to be announced soon.

“Country & Cold Cans was such a great tour last fall,” Dierks said. “It’s just way too much fun to stop and we knew we had to continue it into the spring and make another run across the U.S. when we get home from Canada and Australia. We’re even going to Alaska, giving new meaning to COLD cans.”

Dierks has nothing but good things to say about his opening acts and plans on catching their shows while out on the road. “I’m excited that EYB is coming out with us again, great dudes and they put on a killer show,” he said. “I’m also a big fan of both The Cadillac Black and Will Hoge, so I’m looking forward to watching their sets every night.” Continue Reading

Eli Young Band is slowly revealing their 2012 plans. They’ll hit the road with Dierks Bentley on the 2012 leg of his Country & Cold Cans Tour which kicks off in Los Angeles on April 13 and also head Down Under with one of country’s super couples. “Some of them we can’t announce,” said Mike Eli, “but we get to go to Australia in March with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill which is absolutely incredible.”

They will also launch their own headlining tour, the Keep On Dreamin’ Tour, which will run throughout the year in between dates with other headliners. The rest of their touring plans are top secret. “There are two other big tours that we’re waiting on them to announce so that we can talk about it,” Mike said. “Those are happening in the summer and late spring.”

The band could also be on the bill for a major tour this fall, but they’re still waiting for confirmation. They are thrilled to see so many dates filling their calendar this year. “This is the first year where we can look at our calendar and it’s pretty much set, which is a really nice feeling,” Jon Jones said. “It’s not like we know we’re going to be busy through the end of February and then hope we can pick up some shows.” Continue Reading

Dierks Bentley’s Band Holds Hot Wing Eating Contest

When Dierks Bentley is away, the band will play. Dierks had to leave rehearsals for his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour to do some promotion for his new album, but he gave his band strict instructions to continue fine tuning their set. The band had other ideas, however, and took over DBTV, Dierks’ weekly web series, to hold the First Annual Feel That Fire Hot Wing Eating Competition.

The band acquired some of the hottest wings in Nashville and two members went head to head to see who could eat the most while a third provided background music from his iPhone that sounded, at times, suspiciously like Angry Birds. Watch this hilarious episode of DBTV and see which band member sweats it out the most to win the grand prize – a handmade tank top!

Dierks Bentley wrapped up the first leg of his 2011 Country & Cold Cans Tour over the weekend with sold out shows in Boise, Idaho, Bozeman, Montana and Denver Colorado. The tour will resume in February 2012 with the first dates scheduled in Canada and Australia.

“It has been a great run to end the tour on… the fans out West came ready to party,” Dierks said. “The crowd in Boise set a record for beer sales! I’d say that’s a pretty good way to wrap up this leg of the ‘Country & Cold Cans’ tour.”

On Monday, Dierks performed “Home” for President Obama at The White house as part of PBS’s Country Music: In Performance at the White House. The special will air on PBS at 8/7 CT on Wednesday, November 23.

“Standing in the East Room of The White House last night rehearsing ‘Home’ was a surreal feeling,” Dierks said. “No matter who you vote for or what you believe, it is one of the greatest symbols of our country.  It is our nation’s ‘Home.’ I’m honored to have been asked to perform there, and tonight when I sing this song, I will definitely be thinking about all of the men and women in the military.”
