Dierks Bentley announced yesterday that his sixth Capitol Nashville studio album, Home, is to be released on Feb. 7, 2012. The title single was released to iTunes last week and immediately climbed up the Top 10. It follows Bentley’s single, “Am I the Only One,” that recently marked his eighth career No. 1 hit.
On Feb. 2, Bentley will play a special release show in Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium. Tickets go on sale Friday, Nov. 18, at the Ryman box office, on ryman.com and through all Ticketmaster locations.
"My home is in Nashville with my family, my home is on the road with our fans and my home is definitely in country music," says Bentley. "This album is more than a year's worth of writing, recording and testing out material on the road in front of our hard-core fans. The end result is an album that runs through all the types of country songs and sounds I enjoy singing and playing. I can't wait to share it with the fans!"
Critics are raving about Bentley’s Home and to help spread the word about his release, he will perform the title single on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Thursday, Nov. 17 at 11:35 p.m. Est. AOL recently described the track as “sure to resonate with Americans facing challenges today.”
Dierks will wrap up the first leg of his "Country & Cold Cans" Tour this weekend and will pick it up in February with tour dates already scheduled in Canada and Australia. This weekend he will travel to Nampa, Idaho, Bozeman, Mont., Rapid City, S.D., and Denver, Colo. For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.dierks.com.
