DIERKS BENTLEY PACKS HOUSES ON CANADIAN LEG OF 2012 COUNTRY & COLD CANS TOUR AND CLOCKS 1 MILLIONTH MILE ON DRIVE "HOME" TO THE UNITED STATES

 

NASHVILLE, TN - Feb. 24, 2012 - Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley wrapped the Canadian leg of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour last night in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Shortly after crossing the border on his return 'home' to the U.S., Bentley's tour bus "Old Goldie" marked its one millionth mile.

"Goldie has been my home on the road since I put out my very first single," said Bentley. "A lot of memories have been made traveling across the country in Goldie, and I've been able to see every city and town three or four times.  If you look at my guitar or my boots or my truck, you know that I love old things.  I hope she makes it another million!"

 The eight city tour across Canada was the first official trek of 2012's Country & Cold Cans Tour in support of Bentley's sixth studio album "Home," which debuted at No. one last week and continues to bring in massive critical acclaim. Here's what they are saying about the Canadian leg of the tour:

"He certainly has a firm grip on what it takes to be an entertainer…had the crowd on its feet (not like they ever sat down) and singing every word."  - Calgary Sun

"He's an unstoppable showman." - Edmonton Journal

"Bentley and his ace band kept the energy up…the entire group worked the stage, with Bentley stopping to shake hands, run around the wings and even take a swig of beer from a fan's cup. He may be a Grammy-nominated big name artist, but he comes off as an authentic artist who knows how to make his audience feel good." – Saskatoon Star Phoenix

Bentley will play the San Antonio Rodeo this weekend, before taking his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour to Australia and then on a 20-city U.S. spring run.
