Bentley, CCR hit the clubs

Monday, January 15, 2007 – Dierks Bentley will leave behind the arenas, three semi trucks, two buses, a lighting rig and a large crew to hook up with Cross Canadian Ragweed for their third annual High Times and Hangover tour in February.

The nine-city run throughout the Midwest and Southeast will stop in small bars and clubs with capacities ranging from 500 to 900.

"My business manager is referring to this tour as the 'how much fun can we have and how much money can we lose tour," joked Bentley in a press release. "It's definitely all about the music and good times. Our set will be stacked with mostly old country cover songs and a few of our hits. Staying true to the tour's name, I'm sure we'll be playing old Cash and Waylon songs well into the early morning."

After the tour ends, Bentley and his band will travel to the Daytona International Speedway to perform at NASCAR's annual Budweiser Shootout being broadcast live on the FOX Network on Feb. 10.

Bentley will release his first-ever live concert DVD "Live and Loud at the Fillmore" March 20.

Tour dates:

Feb. 1 Chicago Joe's Sports Bar
Feb. 2 South Bend, IN Legends at Notre Dame
Feb. 3 Carbondale, IL Copper Dragon
Feb. 5 Athens, Ga. 40 Watt Club
Feb. 6 Auburn Ala. War Eagle Supper Club
Feb. 7 Albany, Ga. State Theatre
Feb. 8 Milledgeville, Ga. Capitol City
Feb. 9 Statesboro, Ga. Legends

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.
