Dierks Bentley makes house calls

Sandwiched between concerts on NBC's Today (May 7) and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live (May 15), Bentley he will play intimate acoustic sets in living rooms and backyards across the country. The 11-city tour includes stops in Philadelphia, New York, Charlotte, Greenville, Indianapolis, Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, Seattle, Los Angeles and Atlanta, where he will finish with an all-night autograph signing. Along the way, NASCAR superstar Dale Jr. will host an album release party in Charlotte at his country club Whiskey River.

"Almost every night at our fan club meet and greet someone invites me to cool party at their house after the show, and I can never go because we have to load-out to get to the next city, but we are going to make up for lost time starting next week," said Bentley. "Plus, having a few cold ones with Jr. in Charlotte is an opportunity I couldn't pass up. I'm looking forward to helping him break in his new bar."

The album, which was executive produced by fans who voted online to choose the content, title and artwork, consists of the singer/songwriter's 10 number 1 or Top 10 singles, 5 live versions of crowd favorites "So So Long," "Lot of Leavin' Left To Do," "Come A Little Closer," "Wish It Would Break" and "Free & Easy (Down The Road I Go)," and two new tracks; "With The Band" and "Sweet & Wild" (featuring Sarah Buxton).
