Country Music star Dierks Bentley gave a preview of his forthcoming acoustic album, Up On The Ridge, this week at a listening party in Nashville.

According to CMT News, the album, due out this summer, consists of traditional bluegrass and plenty of sound way beyond that of bluegrass and Country Music. "Up On A Ridge," co-written by Bentley and Angelo Petraglia, even invokes a little rap. Bentley then takes on the legendary rock band U2, with a cover of their famous "Pride (In The Name Of Love)."

Up On The Ridge
also features a host of guest performances from stars like Alison Kraus, Sam Bush, Miranda Lambert, Jamey Johnson and Del McCoury.

Bentley's summer tour will begin April 21 in Portland, Ore.
