Coming on the heels of the international release of RISER, award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley crossed the pond for the  Country to Country Festival that hit Dublin and London. The Daily Mirror noted, “Dierks was a revelation. We are now fans,” while the BBC reported “he blew the roof off.”

“Dierks’ show was full of energy,” said Iain Snodgrass, VP of International Marketing at Universal Music Group International. “He connected with people of all ages and even pulled out an exclusive performance of Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You were Here’ that segued into Avicii’s ‘Hey Brother.’ He received the strongest crowd reaction of the night and we all think he needs to come back soon!”

On Friday (3/21), fans can catch Bentley take the stage for CMT Crossroads: OneRepublic and Dierks Bentley at 9:00P CT. From the Crossroads stage, Bentley will prepare for the launch of his headlining 2014 RISER TOUR kicking off May 9 in Charlotte, NC. For a full list of upcoming tour dates and appearances, visit
