“I wrote a song a few months back with some friends called ‘Beers On Me’ that inspired this year’s tour name,” explains Bentley. “It’s a pretty simple recipe for summer…get your friends together, have a round or two and dive into some great Country music. That’s exactly what Riley, Parker and I plan on doing out there on the road with our fans. Both these guys are road warriors and great performers that are going to help us get this summer fired up.”

Before his return to the road this summer, Bentley brings back his HIGH TIMES & HANGOVERS club tour next week with five shows in five nights, as the last time he headlined a dive bar tour by the same name was 2006. The sold-out run launches Tuesday, (5/11) at Windjammer in Isle of Palms, SC, with special guest Cody Canada & The Departed. Additionally this summer, Bentley has been tapped to headline major festivals including the Telluride Bluegrass Festival (6/13), Windy City Smokeout (7/10), Oregon Jamboree (7/30) and Watershed (7/31).
Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on his last album THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. Following his 19th No. One hit at Country radio, he continues to climb the chart with his current Top 20 single “Gone.” Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACM's, CMA's, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations. He just recently celebrated his 15 year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. As “he is dedicated to giving fans the best performance possible" (The Tennesseean) as a headliner for national festivals and during his own headlining run, Bentley has also created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting five locations. For more information visit www.dierks.com.
Born in Jacksonville, AL, Riley Green was raised on the sounds of traditional Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music. His full-length debut album DIFFERENT ‘ROUND HERE was released in 2019 via BMLG Records and produced the GOLD-certified No. One hit “There Was This Girl” and the PLATINUM-certified single “I Wish Grandpa’s Never Died.” Named ACM’s "2020 New Male Artist of the Year," Green recently released his latest EP IF IT WASN’T FOR TRUCKS. His additional accolades include being selected as CMT “Listen Up Artist,” Music Row’s 2019 “Next Big Things” and "Breakout Artist of the Year” as well as one of CRS’ 2020 "New Faces." For more information visit www.RileyGreenMusic.com.
Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Parker McCollum began building a following in his native Texas with 2015's The Limestone Kid. His songwriting earned him a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Nashville in May 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music Group Nashville in June 2019. Last fall, Parker released his new EP, HOLLYWOOD GOLD, the highest-selling debut country EP of 2020. Parker just released his new single “To Be Loved By You” and received an ACM nomination for "New Male Artist of the Year.” For more information visit www.ParkerMccollum.com.

BRAD PAISLEY ANNOUNCES
Special Guests Include Jimmie Allen and Kameron Marlowe
Encourages Fans to “Take the Shot”
Global country music superstar Brad Paisley has announced his Tour 2021, launching on
June 5 in Panama City Beach at Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam, which is the first large-scale festival in the world to take place in 2021. His second stop will be Nashville’s 4th of July celebration, Let Freedom Sing!, which is expected to be Music City’s first major event of the year. Special guests on the tour dates will be multi-platinum selling and current ACM New Male Artist Jimmie Allen and Columbia Nashville rising star Kameron Marlowe.
Paisley has partnered with Vanderbilt Health in a national PSA to encourage fans to get the COVID-19 vaccine - “Be a Fan. Take the Shot.” “It’s been a real difficult year, a nightmare for anyone who makes their living with a group of people. I feel very passionate about the chance we have for normalcy right now with the vaccine – there’s light at the end of the tunnel. I have a band and crew just waiting to get back out on the road. The more of us that Take the Shot the safer it will be for all of us to gather.” Brad Paisley “Be A Fan. Take The Shot” PSA Available Here
Fans can purchase tickets for all dates now at www.bradpaisley.com. Live Nation is the official promoter of the tour. Check local markets for on sale information and additional event details.
A portion of all ticket sales will go to The Store – a nonprofit free-referral based grocery store co-founded by Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The Store opened for in-store clients on March 12, 2020, following the March 3 tornado that devastated parts of Nashville. The Store was open for only four days when the COVID-19 pandemic became widespread and it was obvious in-store shopping was not going to be feasible. A new plan was needed and staff, partners and volunteers all worked diligently to reach people in need as they were sheltered at home. A home delivery system for the elderly was immediately put in place and curbside pick-up was implemented. The weekly deliveries are currently capped at 450 households and curbside pickup is at 200 per week. This is six times the initial projection and equals to over 1.3 million meals distributed. For more information on The Store go to www.thestore.org.
