Dierks Bentley Set for St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series Tonight
Hold On, now. Country superstar Dierks Bentley rocks the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concert series tonight, July 24. Concert starts at 7 p.m. (gates open at 5:30 p.m.) at Deer Valley Resort's Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Lawn tickets are available (reserved tickets are sold out). Tickets available online at www.bigstarsbrightnightsconcerts.org or 435-655-3114.
"Country's most charismatic centrist" (Washington Post), Dierks Bentley delivers modern country, classic country, (a little bluegrass) and rock. He sings of pick-up trucks and red, white and blue, faith, parties and love. And the sizzling, chart-topping, country singer and songwriter has garnered 11 Grammy nominations, topped the charts with seven albums and earned an invitation to join the Grand Ole Opry.
Bentley brings his full-throttle show to Park City hot on the heels of his seventh album "Riser," which is full of tunes that rival any "bro-country" chart-toppers. According to the Star Tribune, the single "Drunk on a Plane" has become "Nashville's Freshest, Funniest Party Song." But Bentley's music is certainly not all keg-stands and voluptuous flight attendants. He isn't afraid to delve into the deeper - and heavier - sentiments of lyrical songwriting with tunes like "I'm a Riser" and his lead single "I Hold On" (about the loss of his father, his love for his wife and more). As the Huffington Post puts it, "the singer-songwriter continues to bring a much-needed creative heft to country music."
"He's a country rocker through and through - blue jeans, pickup truck and all," says PCI executive director. "And while he delivers one hell of a party song, he's got a songwriter's genuine gift when it comes to the introspective tunes and a voice to match. This will be an unforgettable Pioneer Day event."
