Last month, platinum-selling singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley announced the second leg of his 2014Riser Tour. The 20-city run begins Oct. 2 in Stockton, Calif., and runs through the end of the year with special guests Randy Houser and Eric Paslay on the US dates and Houser and rising Canadian artist Tim Hicks on the stops north of the border. The tour will make a stop at Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday, Dec. 2.

“It’s going to be tough to top this summer, but every night I get more excited and don’t want this run to end. I’m just living in the moment as much as I can and taking it all in…it really has been the best summer of my life,” said Bentley. “I’m looking forward to having Randy, Eric and Tim out on the road for the next leg…all three of them are crazy talented.”

While capacity crowds have filled amphitheaters across the country, Bentley’s tour has also caught the attention of critics who note headlining is “what the man was born to do” (Arizona Republic).

Bentley’s smash hit of the summer, Drunk on a Plane, continues to gain momentum as it closes in on the No. 1 position, selling an average of more than 65,000 singles a week. The single is off his critically acclaimed and No. 1 selling new album, Riser, which has tallied more than 1.5 million digital track sales to date and has already claimed a chart-topping hit with the deeply personal I Hold On. His six previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, notched 11 chart-topping singles and earned 11 Grammy nominations, countless CMA, ACM and CMT nominations and membership at the Grand Ole Opry.

Randy Houser took country fans and industry insiders by storm with the 2013 release of his Stoney Creek Records album How Country Feels. Scoring three consecutive No. 1 hits with the title track, Runnin’ Outta Moonlight and Goodnight Kiss, Houser also earned the American Country Award for Most Played Radio Track: Male (How Country Feels) and his first No. 1 as a songwriter (Goodnight Kiss). His new single, Like a Cowboy, is the fourth release from How Country Feels and was written by Houser and Brice Long.

Multiple 2014 CCMA Award nominee Tim Hicks has already achieved four Top 10 singles in Canada, two Juno Award nominations and his third gold-certified single. His sophomore album, 5:01, shot to No. 1 on the Canadian iTunes Country chart, and the lead single Here Comes the Thunder has been added to rotation at SiriusXM’s The Highway. In 2013, Hicks became the No. 1 highest selling digital Canadian Country Artist of the Year, as well as the Most Played Debut Artist overall at Canadian Country radio.
