Dierks Bentley will be playing the famed and beloved Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado on September 5 and 6. His headlining set will be available to stream live to fans across the world on Veeps.com and the Veeps app on Roku, Apple TV, iOS, and Android starting at 10 pm CT. Across the two nights, Bentley will welcome opening acts Ashley McBryde, The Red Clay Strays, Harper O’Neill, The Infamous Stringdusters, Tanner Usrey and Kaitlin Butts.
Meanwhile, Whiskey Jam, one of Nashville’s most beloved live music series for discovery and community, will move to Dierks’s Whiskey Row at 400 Broadway this month. Whiskey Jam has been a home for the artist and songwriting community for nearly 13 years, featuring thousands of performances by then-emerging artists, including Luke Combs, Chris Stapleton, Old Dominion, Kacey Musgraves, Morgan Wallen, and Bentley.
Dierks said in part in a statement, “I’m proud to know that my bar will be home base for artists and fans who want to hear original music of all kinds.”
Jordan Davis was recently asked if he has had a chance to fly with his tour headliner, Dierks Bentley. Dierks is a pilot who flies his own Cessna plane to shows nationwide. Jordan said his tour boss saved him recently and helped him make a show.
Davis told us, “First show of the tour, I’m sitting on an Air Canada flight plane in Toronto. It’s an hour delayed. Everybody knows Air Canada is terrible. So I was like, ‘This flight is gonna get canceled; I’m gonna miss the first day of the Dierks tour.’ Then I get a message from my manager that says, ‘Hey, get off the plane; Dierks is gonna re-route and pick us up.”
Jordan continues, “True story. He swoops in and picks us up with caked-on sunscreen in his Dierks gear: flip-flops and shorts. I was like, ‘Thanks, dude, for picking me up,’ he says, ‘Yeah man, hop in, we’ll take off.’ We fly to Canada going down to land; something’s on the runway, and we have to pull back up. Dierks is flying the airplane, not like co-piloting; he’s flying the airplane, goes down, pulls back up, circles back around, comes in, and in one of the smoothest landings I’ve ever had in a PJ (personal jet), he flies in a PJ, he’s rich.”
