Dierks Bentley will kick off his 2014 Riser Tour on May 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina and wind his way across the U.S. throughout the summer. Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi will open in what is sure to be an exciting concert series.

Dierks Bentley’s “Riser” album drops February 25. The album is said to be his most emotional album yet as it was created during a period of time when Dierks Bentley had gone from losing his father to welcoming a new son. With such a range of emotions from sorrow to joy going on in Dierks Bentley’s personal life, the thoughts conveyed on “Riser” are expected to be heartfelt reflections that fans can relate to.

Dierks Bentley’s single “I Hold On” already shows glimpses of the love and longing the singer has for his father with lyrics such as “It’s just an old beat up truck, some say that I should trade up.... What they don’t know is my dad and me–we drove her out to Tennessee. And she’s still here and now he’s gone, so I hold on.”

The tour won’t be all tears and heart-tugging though. Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi will surely tear up the stage and get the fans riled up for Dierks Bentley himself. Chris Young’s latest hit “Aw Naw” was voted into the #2 spot on Marco Club Connection’s Top Ten Country Dance Songs of 2013 list. Chase Rice co-wrote the hit single “Cruise” that has won multiple awards for Florida Georgia Line and is now gaining recognition for his own song, “Ready Set Roll.” Jon Pardi joins Dierks Bentley’s tour for the second time, bringing a new single, “Up All Night” to the set.

Specific concert dates will be released via Dierks Bentley’s website in the near future.
