– Dierks Bentley prepares for the release of his sixth studio album, "Home," with fan events, television appearances and album release shows in support of the disc, out on Tuesday.
Bentley will officially kicked off release week at the Ryman Auditorium, with a special album release show in Nashville last night.
Bentley will start on the east coast and move west over the course of the week visiting fans in Boston on Feb. 4, Baltimore on Feb. 5, New York on Feb. 8, Chicago on Feb. 9, Denver on Feb. 10 and Phoenix on Feb. 11.
He will be on NBC's TODAY on both Feb. 6 and Feb. 7 and The Late Show with David Letterman on Feb. 8, where he'll follow the TV taping with a full set for their popular webcast program Live On Letterman. The week will cap off in Los Angeles with the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 12 and a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Feb. 15.
"We worked so hard and spent so much time writing and recording this album," said Bentley. "Now we get to criss cross the country and get it in the fans' hands...I'm sure I'll be running on adrenaline the entire time. I've got a few surprises planned along the way too. Kicking it all off tonight at The Ryman...there's nothing better than that."
"Home" includes the hit title track and Am I the Only One. The new project also features special guests including Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and bluegrasser Sam Bush and Tim O'Brien.
Bentley will jet straight to the first show of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour on Feb. 15 in Vancouver, Canada.
