Dierks Bentley will be on the road for the winter run of his Beers on Me Tour.
After wrapping the first leg this past weekend, Bentley will continue that momentum with a 21-city run launching Jan. 6, 2022 in London, Ontario, Canada. The tour will include openers Jordan Davis along with Tenille Arts and Lainey Wilson. Tickets go on sale to the public beginning Friday at 10 a.m. local time.
"People think we are crazy to go to Canada and the Northwest in January, but we've learned from previous tours that it's a great time to bring a party up there," Bentley said. "For me personally, I don't mind that there is plenty of ice, snow and mountains for some adventure between shows."
Also launching today is the official music video for the single by the same name. Bentley, HARDY and BRELAND ambushed unsuspecting bystanders across Nashville with free beer and plenty of high fives and selfies.

Dierks Bentley seems intent on expanding his musical boundaries, but he may have overreached too much in eschewing where he came from.
That most evident by the dominating textured beats. Producer Ross Copperman and Bentley seem hell bent on injecting odd meters and sounds, sharp detours from past efforts. Unfortunately, the atmospheric beats muddy up the vocal delivery on "Freedom," a song that stretches far too long at almost four minutes. Bentley also channels U2 with its ...
Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley.
