Las Vegas has gone country. Today (July 17), the inaugural Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival was announced and the lineup includes A-list artists like Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and Brandley Gilbert.
Dierks Bentley will hop on a motorcycle again this September for his ninth annual Miles & Music for Kids celebrity motorcycle ride and concert. The event will include performances by Randy Houser, Kip Moore, Jon Pardi and Chris Young.
From the pain of a George Jones classic and the simple joys of the Judds, on up to the determination of Dierks Bentley to move ahead even as he ‘holds on,’ these ten songs show different shades of nostalgia in contemporary country music.
From Hank Williams moaning that there’s “A Tear in My Beer” on up to Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup,” Kenny Chesney’s “Beer in Mexico” and even recent single “Bartender” from Lady Antebellum, drinking has been a favorite topic in country music.
Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Hunter Hayes and The Band Perry are just some of the artists who perform on their own or alongside members of the military during tonight’s “All-Star Salute to the Troops.”
“I know my hardcore fans are going to love this,” Bentley said of the film. “I had that in mind the whole time.”
“There are a few subplots working underneath the main story that totally crack me up…if you watch it a couple times, you start to pick up on more funny details,” Dierks Bentley said.
As it’s wont to do, Bonnaroo will feature multiple extended jam sessions — deemed SuperJams — between many of its artists that combine the familiar with the unfamiliar when it rolls around this summer.
Dierks Bentley is all about getting drunk on a plane and now you can, too. In celebration of his new single, “Drunk on a Plane,” he launched a photo app that allows fans to upload their personal photos and add their own story to the snapshot with various graphics.
During rehearsals for the ACM Awards, Bentley and Crow spoke with Radio.com about the song they performed on the show together, “I Hold On,” as well as Bentley’s next single “Drunk on a Plane.”
