Dubbed one of "Country music’s most adventurous artists (Billboard),” in 2010 Bentley formally shared his love of Bluegrass with the release of the critically acclaimed album UP ON THE RIDGE. He has continued to help fans experience his love of the West, capturing "the natural beauty of the Colorado mountains" (USA Today) with his most recent chart-topper THE MOUNTAIN, where it was written and recorded.
Bentley will headline many of this summer’s biggest festivals across the country before venturing on his 2021 BEERS ON ME TOUR with specials guests Riley Green and Parker McCollum, launching Aug. 13th at Salt Lake City, UT's USANA Amphitheatre. Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams and 20 No. One singles at Country radio. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACM's, CMA's, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations. He just recently celebrated his 15 year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry and has also created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting five locations.
