DIERKS BENTLEY POWERS INTO THE TOP 20 WITH SUMMER PARTY ANTHEM "SIDEWAYS"

New Music Video Debuts Today on iTunes

NASHVILLE, TN - Apr 14, 2009 - Multi-platinum country rocker Dierks Bentley is burning up the radio charts with the second single from his No. one debut album FEEL THAT FIRE. The gravel-flying, good-time Saturday night special "Sideways" is already the fastest rising single of Bentley's career, cracking the Top 20 in only five weeks.

"'Sideways' is all about cutting loose and having a good time, and this is the most fun I've ever had making a video," says Bentley. "The fans brought killer energy to the set. The choreographer and dancers were amazing and so talented. I was totally unaware that break dancing to a country song was even remotely possible until this video shoot! It was a total blast. This was such a fun song to write, and I hope it's one our fans will be cranking their stereos up to 11 to all summer long."

The video world premieres on iTunes today. The party clip was filmed in a Nashville club in March and was directed by Michael Saloman and choreographed by Hi Hat, who is well known for her work on Apple's iPod commercials, as well as for stars like Kanye West, Missy Elliot and Lil Wayne.
