Dierks Bentley Gets Ready to Head Out on the Gravel & Gold Tour.


WEBWIRE

Dierks Bentley is about to hit the road on his Gravel & Gold Tour. Hehas tapped Jordan Davis as direct support with a diverse group of special guests joining throughout the 28-city trek including Elle King, Tracy Lawrence, Tyler Braden, Caylee Hammack, Hot Country Knights, Kameron Marlowe, The Cadillac Three, The Red Clay Strays, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway, Shane Smith & the Saints, Caitlyn Smith and Hailey Whitters.

Dierks is really excited to see his opening acts on stage every night, and he feels the fans will feel the same. Its a big group of various acts kicking things off every night, and its just exciting, he says. So, just seeing their names excites me, because this is the first time Ive ever done a tour where we have rotating opening acts. Itll be myself and Jordan Davis and then just every night a different person out there, you know? So, Im just so excited for this tour to get a chance to see different bands play. Molly Tuttles gonna be out there as well, the great bluegrasser, and I know that Jordans super pumped about it, but also for fans coming to different shows, they might come and see us in one town and it might be the Cadillac Three opening and then they come to another town and they get turned on to The Red Clay Strays. Thats really just exciting for them and for us. So, like I said, just seeing their names on paper gets me excited, let alone actually when I see it on the ticket and walk out of my bus that morning and bump into Caitlyn Smith or Caylee backstage and getting to meet her band and feel their vibe out and then watch them on stage that night. Its just gonna make for a great summer.

He adds that he handpicked every artist on the road with him, because hes a fan of their artistry. I want people on the road that I absolutely 100% want to watch play every night. I got really lucky with Jordan Davis as our main opening support, because hes like on fire. Its a win-win. Hes gonna help us bring more people into the show. Hes gonna make everyone be super, be in a great mood before I even walk on stage, but I love his music. Hes just very unique stylist vocally. He sings songs that are very true to who he is, so thats awesome, says Dierks. I selfishly just love all these people. I handpicked all of em. I mean theyre all people I want to watch play every night. Elle King? I mean, these are all like my friends or people I want to be my friends, (laugh) and Ill be side stage every night watching them.

I want people on the road that I absolutely 100% want to watch play every night. I got really lucky with Jordan Davis as our main opening support, because hes like on fire. Its a win-win. Hes gonna help us bring more people into the show. Hes gonna make everyone be super,be in a great mood before I even walk on stage, but I love his music. Hes just very unique stylist vocally. He sings songs that are very true to who he is, so thats awesome. So, yeah, the people going on before Jordan, I selfishly just love all these people. I handpicked all of em. I mean theyre all people I want to watch play every night. Elle King? I mena, these are all like my friends or people I want to be my friends, (laugh) and Ill be side stage every night watching them. You know, all the folks in radio know that when you come to the show, were gonna go back to my bar Whiskey Row, were gonna mix some drinks, hang out for a little bit, but Im gonna take you out there to watch these bands, and Ill be right beside you watching them with you. I have speakers set up on the sides of my stage just for radio, just for me to really hear the sound because a lot of times with the in-ear monitors, you cant hear the show from the side of the stage. My show, its a rock show on the side of the stage. We have the speakers cranking. Its fun. A little bar set up back there. Its super fun. So, yeah, its gonna be a great experience for us as fans of these opening bands every night on the road.
