Dierks Bentley plans March DVD release

Tuesday, January 9, 2007 – Dierks Bentley will release his first-ever live concert DVD, "Live and Loud at the Fillmore" March 20.

The hi-definition DVD, directed by London-based filmmaker Russell Thomas, was shot in June 2006 at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium in front of a standing-room only crowd.

"Making a live DVD has been a dream of mine for a couple years now," said Bentley. "I really wanted to capture what we were doing in our live show at that particular moment, and I think Russell did an incredible job putting it on film. This is the ultimate accomplishment for me, the band and our fans."

Bonus footage takes fans behind the scenes of life on the road for the Phoenix-native, who toured over 300 days last year.

"The great thing is that Dierks wanted to do something different, and he really has an incredible creative eye," says Thomas. "We wanted a very contemporary feel but also a timeless piece that won't age too quickly. I tried to imagine what a good rock and roll band should look like and then tried to transfer some of that imagery onto country music and Dierks....gritty, grainy, gutsy."

Bentley kicked off the Canadian leg of his Bud Light sponsored "Locked & Loaded" tour this week in Vancouver with label-mate Eric Church and Canadian artist Doc Walker.

He's been recording for 20 years now. Yet Bentley has come this far with his integrity still intact. He's back with a strong, 14-song set that, like a good beverage, feels good ...
CD review - Black 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 ...
CD review - Riser 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. Bentley embraces current trends in country ...
