After announcing his eighth studio album Black, set for release in early 2016, Dierks Bentley ignites country radio with the album’s lead single “Somewhere On A Beach.” The multi-Platinum entertainer has also announced that the US leg of his 2016 Somewhere On A Beach Tour will begin on May 12th in Holmdel, NJ at the PNC Bank Arts Center with Randy Houser and special guest Cam. Fans can purchase tickets beginning January 29th for select cities as part of Live Nation’s Country Megaticket.
“This album is about ALL phases of a relationship, including the breakups,” said Bentley. ”’Beach’ is a pretty blunt take on that wild rebound we’ve all had or maybe imagined having. The carefree attitude is exactly the spirit we wanted to bring out on the road this year. I’ve toured with Randy before, and he’s just a great dude – on stage and backstage. And I’ve gotten to know Cam a little over the last year, and she’s fun as hell too and so talented. It’s going to be a big summer for sure.”
While Black sets a new artistic course, it’s “Somewhere On A Beach” that first breaches the candid message of the highs and lows romantic relationships face. Fans caught the first performance of “Beach” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (Jan 19th).
