Coming off an unforgettable high from his inaugural Seven Peaks Music Festival, current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley hosted a sold-out crowd on Saturday (9/8) at his first-ever stop at New York City’s Madison Square Garden with his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR. While darting from the main stage to an intimate side-stage, connection with as many fans along the way, Bentley performed his biggest hits and new music off his No. One selling and CMA nominated album THE MOUNTAIN. The night included collaborations of his “multidimensional” (Rolling Stone) current Top 25 “Burning Man” with Brothers Osborne and a throwback nod to his love of 90’s Country Music with LANCO’s Brandon Lancaster for John Michael Montgomery’s “Sold.”
Bentley continues to trek through the most “prestigious spots around the country” (Dallas Observer) on his 2018 MOUNTAINHIGH TOUR, drawing critics’ stamp of approval nationwide as his live show appeal “fuses modern Country and bluegrass” (The Morning Call).
“This was the best show I’ve seen all summer and I recommend taking a road trip to experience this.” – Times-Union
“This is not a man who meanders or moseys on stage; Bentley races from back to front to side and back again. The crowd held on, too, as he dived into his catalog of music new and old.” – St. Louis Dispatch
“An ultimate showman, Bentley is as good live as he is on studio recordings. He interacts with the crowd and has a storyteller’s style to his lyrics.” – Baltimore Post-Examiner
“Among the most original artists to hit Nashville in the past 15 years, Dierks Bentley blends a bluegrass ethos with traditional country sentiments.” – News & Observer
“Bentley and his tight five-piece band came out steaming, flowing the set’s first nine songs one into another in breathless but precision fashion whose transitions were even tighter.” – Daily Tribune
The multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter “has one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes). Reaching a new creative high, he co-wrote 10 of THE MOUNTAIN’s (Capitol Records Nashville) 13 tracks, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album and has been touted for its “quality music with depth and sincerity” (NPR) ranging in style from textured rock to acoustic folk. Bentley has amassed billions of digital streams, countless nominations from the ACMs, Billboard Music Awards while earning 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. He continues to host capacity crowds throughout the summer on his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR with stops this weekend in Jacksonville, FL (9/13), West Palm Beach, FL (9/14) and Tampa, FL (9/15).
