Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley announced today that his Burning Man Tour 2019 will kick off on Jan. 17 in Hamilton, Ont., with special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and Hot Country Knights. The tour will also make a stop in Ottawa at Richcraft Live at Canadian Tire Centre on Friday, Jan. 18. Bentley is known to “pull out all the stops, not quitting until the crowd is whipped into a frothy frenzy” (On Milwaukee) and will continue to do so in 2019 with the run named after his “most affecting song” (Rolling Stone) and hit single Burning Man featuring Brothers Osborne.

“I talked to Jon Pardi last April about the idea of going back on the road together one last time, and I am so happy that I can finally let our fans in on this,” said Bentley. “I’m still coming off the high of playing Hollywood Bowl and the last tour, but knowing that this Burning Man Tour with Pardi was out there waiting has been so awesome. We cannot wait to get back on the road!”
Bentley adds, “Who we bring with us on tour is so important to the band, crew, and me and the addition of Tenille Townes is something we are all stoked about. Our hardcore fans are aware of the 90s country cover band, the Hot Country Knights, who have been following us around and opening shows. They talked us into having them on the actual billing for this tour … hope their van has snow tires for Canada!”
Bentley’s live show has long been applauded by critics who mirror the capacity crowds’ enthusiasm, noting Bentley’s “arena strutting rockers and stripped down mountain music” (Charlotte Observer) blend with state-of-the-art visual production. As he “continues to be a crowd favorite” (Kansas City Star), Bentley will make notable stops throughout North America.

The multi-platinum singer/songwriter “has one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes). Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of his current album The Mountain’s 13 tracks, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed 17 career No. 1 singles, billions of digital streams, countless nominations from the ACMs, Billboard Music Awards and more, while earning 13 Grammy nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. Bentley continues with his endeavors outside of the music industry by partnering with Flag & Anthem to create an exclusive lifestyle collection, Desert Son, and with four Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row locations throughout the United States.

Jon Pardi’s gold-certified album California Sunrise debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart earning him CMA “New Artist of the Year” and ACM “New Male Vocalist Of The Year.” Pardi dominated the top of the Country music charts with consecutive No.1 hits including two-time platinum-selling songs Dirt On My Boots and Head Over Boots, and platinum-certified Heartache On The Dance Floor.

Canadian-born, Nashville-based Tenille Townes is poised for a breakthrough in 2019. Already receiving widespread acclaim for her Living Room Worktapes EP, Rolling Stone declares, “…a stripped-down introduction to an artist with a whole lot to say,” while Billboard furthers, “Her Living Room Worktapes EP is a piece of art! Her unique voice and storytelling sets her apart … you’ll have it on repeat.” Additionally, Townes is the subject of an in-depth profile at NPR Music’s The Record. Calling her “Nashville’s Newest Voice,” writer Jewly Hight gives a rare glimpse into the early stages of Townes’ burgeoning career and asserts, “…she’s an heir to Twain and Swift, Griffin and McKenna alike, as well as a potential peer to figures like Morris and Musgraves, who’ve built significant followings and visibility with strong, self-written material…” Her first official single, Somebody’s Daughter, is currently impacting at Country radio with her forthcoming full-length debut album set for release in 2019. Listen to Somebody’s Daughter here and for more information please visit tenilletownes.com.
