Dierks Bentley Visiting TV Shows and Backyards

Dierks Bentley will travel across the nation for media appearances and intimate parties to promote his new album, Greatest Hits/Every Mile a Memory 2003-2008, which arrives in stores Tuesday (May 6). Bentley will gain the greatest visibility with a performance Wednesday (May 7) on NBC’s Today and a May 15 appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. However, he is also embarking on an 11-city tour to perform acoustic concerts in fans’ living rooms and backyards across the country. Country radio stations are sponsoring contests to determine the winners. In addition, NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. will host an album release party at his club, Whiskey River, in Charlotte, N.C. “Almost every night at our fan club meet-and-greet, someone invites me to a cool party at their house after the show,” Bentley says. “And I can never go because we have to load out to get to the next city, but we are going to make up for lost time starting next week.”
