Dierks Bentley is one of country music's most prolific stars. He released his first album in 2001 and seven more by the time 2014 rolled around. His discography includes four number one country albums: Modern Day Drifter (2005), Long Trip Alone (2006), Feel That Fire (2009), and Home (2012).
Those albums, as well as Up on the Ridge (2010), also cracked the top ten on the Billboard 200. Even critics have to admit that Bentley is a road warrior. He has sold Dierks Bentley tickets for more than a dozen tours - some of those treks he was a supporting act and some he was the headliner.
Through the years, Bentley has toured with a bevy of major country music artists including Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, and Eli Young Band. Bentley was born in Phoenix in 1975. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1997.
Before becoming a big time country music singer, Bentley worked at The Nashville Network (now called Spike TV). Bentley has three children, one of whom was born on Christmas Day.
With the release of his ninth studio album The Mountain in 2018, Dierks Bentley is traveling the country for his Mountain High Tour 2018.
