“I needed the time off to devote all my attention to the new music and making THE MOUNTAIN album…but now I can’t wait to fire up the buses and get back out there,” said Dierks Bentley. “I’ve been friends with TJ and John for a long time and I have loved watching their career explode. I’m just getting to know the boys in LANCO, but I love their music and the energy they bring to the stage. And after seeing them and the Bros party down at the grand opening of my new bar on Lower Broadway last week, I can tell you it’s gonna be game on this summer!”

Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley found himself instantly intrigued with the song idea of his new single “Woman Amen,” during a co-write with songwriters Josh Kear and Ross Copperman. The result is one of Bentley’s most personal songs that also taps into a universal feeling of love and gratitude for those who walk through life beside us. There was also something entirely captivating about performing this past summer at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Surrounded by his musical heroes, deep in the box canyon of the Colorado mountain town, the course was set for the creative process of Bentley’s ninth studio album, THE MOUNTAIN (Capitol Records Nashville), which will be released in early 2018. New music quickly follows as its debut single “Woman Amen” gives a taste of the record’s “themes of questing and self-actualization across a wide-open terrain of arid deserts and rugged ridgelines, cactus flowers and tumbleweeds,” (NPR). The writing process came together quickly when Bentley returned to Telluride a short time later for a retreat with fellow Nashville songwriters. Guitars, banjos, mandolins, and fiddles are given room to shine, and integrated into modern drum and bass sounds that will fuel the arenas and amphitheaters of Bentley’s 2018 tour. While earning 17 career No. Ones, he has garnered nominations from the ACM, CMA, GRAMMY and Billboard Music Awards, he also served as a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade.

Singer/songwriter siblings Brothers Osborne recently won CMA “Vocal Duo of the Year” for the second year in a row in addition to “Music Video of the Year” for their Top 10, GRAMMY-nominated single “It Ain’t My Fault.” They also stand as the reigning ACM “Vocal Duo” and “New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year.” Brothers Osborne’s debut album PAWN SHOP was released January 2016 and was recently certified Gold by the RIAA. PAWN SHOP features three GRAMMY-nominated tracks including “It Ain’t My Fault”, the PLATINUM certified No. One smash hit “Stay A Little Longer” as well as Top 25 hit “21 Summer.” Brothers Osborne has toured with the likes of Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert. They just released their new single “Shoot Me Straight” off their forthcoming sophomore album to be released later this year. For more information www.brothersosborne.com.
Rooted in the southern storytelling of Country music with the modern punch of rock & roll, HALLELUJAH NIGHTS (Arista Nashville) is LANCO’s coming-of-age debut album, available now, that includes their two-week No. One PLATINUM hit “Greatest Love Story” and its follow-up anthemic single “Born To Love You.” They are now the only Country band to achieve a PLATINUM single prior to a debut album release. LANCO’s story begins in the small towns where all five bandmates — Lancaster, bassist Chandler Baldwin, multi-instrumentalist Jared Hampton, drummer Tripp Howell and lead guitarist Eric Steedly — were raised. “Few bands have have generated as much buzz as LANCO” (Pop Culture) as their self-titled debut EP, has gained more than 100 million streams. Named “the band to watch” by Bobby Bones, CMT, Entertainment Weekly, Hits Magazine, Pandora, Rolling Stone, Pandora, Spotify, SIRUIS XM, and more, LANCO gained their status from touring the country’s top festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits.
