On Friday Dierks Bentley Set For New EP and Tour was a top story. Here is the recap: Dierks Bentley will release his new four song digital EP, Country & Cold Cans, at iTunes on August 21st.
Produced by Jaren Johnston, the EP was inspired by the crowd-favorite title track and tour by the same name that recently wrapped legs in the US, Canada and Australia.
With the help of college students, Bentley will kick tailgating season off at three SEC campuses to celebrate the new music in a limited Country And Cold Cans: Back To College Tour with special guest The Cadillac Black. The tour begins at The University of Georgia (8/20) and continues to The University of South Carolina (8/21) and culminates in The Grove at The University of Mississippi (8/22).
"We thought we'd celebrate the end of summer and back to school with an EP of new material that's about cutting loose
it was really inspired by how young and crazy the fans on the Country & Cold Cans Tour were earlier this year," said Bentley. "I've written a lot with Jaren, and we thought it would be fun to get the guys in my band and a couple of cases of beer and go see what happens in the studio. I'm really happy with the tracks, and I think our crowd will dig it." - more on this story
