DIERKS BENTLEY'S "HOME" TRANSCENDS BORDERS THIS WEEK TOPPING CANADA'S COUNTRY RADIO CHART

Bentley Wraps Canadian Leg of Tour and Heads to Australia Next Week

NASHVILLE, TN - Feb. 27, 2012 - Award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley's anthemic title track and current single "Home" is resonating with fans across the border as it climbs into the No. one spot on Canada's Mediabase Country Chart this week. Though inspired by domestic struggles, the track's relatable global message of strife, strength and optimism is unifying fans everywhere.

  "Dierks may have had America in mind with 'Home,' but the fact it went to No. one in Canada shows that the song has universal appeal," said EMI Music Canada's Ron Harwood.  "We are all proud of where we are from.  We've all faced tough times recently.  We all know that things can be better again.  It is a song that reflects on our own past and gives hope for a bright future, regardless of where you call 'home.'"

  "The gorgeous title track tastefully expounds on American patriotism…without resorting to blatant flag waving. Bentley once again affirms he is not your run of the mill country act."  - Winnipeg Free Press

"Home" continues to strike a chord with fans in the U.S. as it also climbs through the Top five at country radio this week. Last week, Bentley wrapped the Canadian leg of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour, which will next visit fans in Australia early next month before its 20-city U.S. spring run.
