Dierks Bentley To Share In Studio Video Feed With Fans

On January 30 fans will be able to share in the recording process of Dierks upcoming album. A live studio cam will be installed and available for viewing at www.dierks.com.

I thought it would be cool to let the fans be part of the whole experience, so we’re going to let them watch as it all goes down.

This is Dierks 6th studio album. The first single is set to be released in the Spring and the album following closely behind.

Dierks Bentley Set To Headline 2011 Jaegermeister Country Tour

Press Release – Nashville, Tenn – Multiple GRAMMY nominee and chart-topping country music star Dierks Bentley is slated to headline the 2011 JÄGERMEISTER COUNTRY TOUR kicking off March 17. The 30-city tour runs through mid-May and will feature special guest Columbia Nashville road warrior Josh Thompson and brand new A&M/Octone duo Miss Willie Brown.

The Best And Worst Of The 2010 CMA Awards Performances

Last night the stars came out in Nashville for what is billed as Country's Biggest Night at the 44th Annual CMA Awards. Overall, they put on an entertaining show with some great performances, but there were also some that missed the mark a bit.

Carrie Underwood opened up the show on a high note, belting out her hit "Songs Like This" with Brad Paisley on guitar and Keith Urban on banjo. The song set a nice pace for the evening and flowed well into Carrie and Brad doing their opening dialog talking about, and joking about, the happenings of 2010. The pair has some great chemistry and really do a good job with their hosting duties.

My two favorite performances of the night came from Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift. Miranda did her best to channel the spirit of the Ramones during her performance of "That's The Way The World Goes Round," but yet still came through with that strong country twang and charm that she has. The song just absolutely rocks in a good way.

Dierks Bently Predicts Miranda Lambert Will Win Album Of The Year

Nice article on the examiner.com website where Dierks Bently talks about making his latest album "Up on the Ridge," a heavily bluegrass influenced record. He recalled going to Nashville's famed Station Inn every week and catching the great bluegrass performers there. When he decided to make this record he felt like it was far enough out of the mainstream that it allowed him more freedom.

"I went into it with no expectations, that's what freed me up to make the kind of record we wanted to make. So, the back side of that to have country radio play the song, see the video on CMT and GAC, and then to be recognized by the CMA for making a record that leans on the bluegrass side of things, there's not a lot of words for it.

While he is blown away by the reaction to the record, he still doesn't seem to have much faith that it can take the top Album honor on the CMAs.
