“Country music’s most relatable star” (Esquire) Dierks Bentley has a full week ahead with national television performances that showcase his depth and diversity across all major broadcast networks. Ahead of the Denver Broncos' Super Bowl rematch against the Carolina Panthers tomorrow (9/8), the multi-CMA nominee will perform the anthemic album cut “Freedom” off his No. One album BLACK during the 2016 NFL KICKOFF PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI (NBC & NFL Network at 7:30P ET on 9/8) pregame festivities. He will perform that same track, as well as honor Glen Campbell, on CBS’ broadcast of 10th Annual ACM Honors the following night at 9:00P ET. Additionally, Bentley was tapped to reimagine David Bowie’s “Heroes" with Keith Urban and Little Big Town during the 5th Annual Stand Up To Cancer telecast (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC at 8P ET on 9/9).  

Bentley’s “game-changing” (Taste Of Country) single “Different for Girls” with friend Elle King climbs up the Top 5 at Country radio after receiving a CMA nomination last week for “Musical Event of the Year.” As a top nominee with four total nods, Bentley was also recognized in the “Album of the Year” category for his No. One selling and critically acclaimed BLACK, “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Music Video of the Year” for his Platinum multi-week No. One summer anthem “Somewhere On A Beach.”

This weekend Bentley will bring his "massive summer trek” (Entertainment Weekly) to the West Coast with capacity crowds (9/9 in Mountain View, CA; 9/10 in Irvine, CA; 9/11 in Chula Vista, CA) on his 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR. Bentley has extended the run with additional arena dates through the end of October with Randy Houser and Drake White. For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.dierks.com.
