Dierks Bentley has added a little kick to his new Riser tour with Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine. The two have teamed up in a multi-year partnership across tour, media and digital platforms. The moonshine maker will provide a tailgate party for fans in a throwback 1920’s style saloon with a modern country vibe featuring signature Ole Smoky drinks, music and specialty merchandise at participating venues.

Dierks said, “When I first moved to Nashville, I lived down at the Station Inn and really dove head first into the bluegrass community. I used to beg my way into pickin parties with those guys because I was eaten up with that sound and that lifestyle. And when you surround yourself with banjos and fiddles, there’s bound to be some shine there too. All of that influenced who I am and the music I make today. Ole Smoky is a great partner for me and my fans out on the Riser tour this year. They’re going to help us get the party started early out in the parking lot and set the tone for a rowdy night.”

Dierks kicked off his Riser tour over the weekend with shows in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina.

The singer has added a new date to his schedule — Bonnaroo! Dierks will be part of the music festival’s Bluegrasss Situation SuperJam. Bonnaroo runs from June 12-15 in Manchester, Tennessee. …read more
