Dierks Bentley sure knows how to please a crowd. When fans asked for a tour, he delivered with the announcement of a 40-city tour that features some of the best up-and-comers in country music.
Announced in early January, the “Sounds of Summer” tour is set to kick off on June 5th in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Bentley has high hopes for the tour, stating that he thinks it will top all of his past tours. The tour is scheduled to last well into September of 2015.
The opening acts are almost as exciting as hearing Bentley on stage:
Kip has been turning heads ever since he released his debut single Mary Was the Marrying Kind. The 34 year old singer is working on his second studio album and is a natural addition to the tour.
Kip has had two singles go gold, Beer Money and Hey Pretty Girl. His 2011 single Somethin’ Bout a Truck reached Platinum status and sat at the top of the US country music charts.
The singer’s latest single is I’m to Blame, which is the second single to be released off of his upcoming album.
Young, vibrant and full of energy. Maddie and Tae met at the young age of 15 and have since rose in popularity thanks to their hit single Girl in a Country Song. The single, from the duo’s EP called Maddie & Tae reached RIAA Gold and shot to the top of the country music charts in 2014.
The duo has released one song so far in 2015 called Fly.
Canaan Smith is an up-and-comer that’s so highly regarded, he made Rolling Stones Country “New Artists to Know” list in 2014. In fact, Smith was featured at number one. The singer has had two singles released: We Got Us and Love You Like That.
The latter has sold over 136,000 in the US, reaching gold status.
Smith may be new to the music scene, but he has already toured 3 times in 2014 as part of CMA Fest, This is How We Cruise and the Country Deep Tour.
The “Sounds of Summer Tour” will be red hot, says critics. With three opening acts to hit the stage, you can expect a lot of fun and excitement before Dierks even makes his appearance.
Opening acts may vary depending on the city and the date of the concert.
