2014 Taste of Country Music Festival Lineup Profile: Dierks Bentley
Dierks Bentley was beyond deserving of an invite to the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival, set for June 13-15, 2014. With six studio albums under his belt (and one on the way!), numerous awards and a Grand Ole Opry membership, this singer is undoubtedly a country favorite.
Bentley, who has been signed to Capitol Records since 2003, has commanded respect from not just the country community, but music as a whole. He’s embraced versatility throughout his storied career, blending bluegrass, modern country, classic country, rock and other textures into a distinctive and unforgettable sound.
His recent album ‘Home’ debuted at No. 1 and spawned three consecutive chart-topping hits, marking 10 career No. 1 songs for Bentley as a singer-songwriter. His other studio albums have sold more than five million copies and garnered him 11 Grammy nominations. Pretty impressive for an artist who is still relatively young at 38.Bentley’s hits range from his debut hit single (which covers a compelling storyline) ‘What Was I Thinkin” to his most recent smash, ‘I Hold On,’ from his forthcoming record ‘Riser.’ Every single song he releases portrays a depth that’s sometimes hard to find within the country music sector — yet somehow, he always finds it.
In addition to being a stellar musician, Bentley is also a pretty great person. The star founded an annual event, Miles and Music for Kids, which features a celebrity motorcycle ride and concert all in the name of charity. He’s also a fantastic father to three kids, including his very first son!
Bentley is a shining star amidst a fantastic lineup at the 2014 ToC Music Festival and camping party at Hunter Mountain in New York. Don’t miss your chance to see performances from other artists including Brad Paisley, Brantley Gilbert, Randy Houser, Thompson Square, Craig Morgan, Thomas Rhett and many more.
