Bentley gets ready to go on "Home"

Friday, February 3, 2012 – 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.

"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.
