41-City Tour Launches in Europe and Returns to the US in May

Bentley to Debut “Somewhere On A Beach” today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
NASHVILLE, TN – Jan. 19 2016 – After announcing his eighth studio album BLACK, set for release in early 2016, Dierks Bentley ignites country radio today with the album’s lead single “Somewhere On A Beach.” The multi-PLATINUM entertainer also announced today that the US leg of his 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR will begin on May 12 in Holmdel, NJ at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser and special guest Cam. Fans can purchase tickets beginning Jan. 29 for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at www.Megaticket.com.
“This album is about ALL phases of a relationship, including the breakups,” said Bentley. ”’Beach’ is a pretty blunt take on that wild rebound we’ve all had or maybe imagined having. The carefree attitude is exactly the spirit we wanted to bring out on the road this year. I’ve toured with Randy before, and he’s just a great dude - on stage and backstage. And I’ve gotten to know Cam a little over the last year, and she’s fun as hell too and so talented. It’s going to be a big summer for sure."
While BLACK sets a new artistic course, it’s “Somewhere On A Beach” that first breaches the candid message of the highs and lows romantic relationships face. Fans can tune-in to begin the journey today (1/19) with Bentley's first performance of the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings).

Since moving from Phoenix to Nashville in the 1990s, Bentley has established his own artistic trail in country music. Instead of rehashing proven formulas, he’s doggedly reinvented his sound and subsequently developed an uncommon mix of commercial success and critical respect. RISER debuted at #1 on the Billboard country album chart, and its trio of chart-topping singles upped his career tally to 13 No one. songs as a songwriter and artist. He’s now amassed 13 GRAMMY nominations and dozens of other award show nominations. Additionally, Bentley has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and will co-host the 51st Annual ACM Awards this April on CBS.
