"Tip It On Back" Download Available as Part of COUNTRY & COLD CANS EP on iTunes Aug. 21

NASHVILLE, TN - Aug. 6, 2012 - Coming off the heels of his 10th No. one hit as a songwriter and artist, country music star Dierks Bentley reaches for a cold one with his new single "Tip It On Back," available at country radio beginning today.  Fans can download a special edit of "Tip It On Back" on iTunes as part of Bentley's upcoming COUNTRY & COLD CANS EP out Aug. 21.

"Tip It On Back," written by Ross Copperman, Tully Kennedy and Jon Nite, chases three consecutive No. one hits off Bentley's sixth studio album HOME.  The new track is carried by Bentley's signature gritty vocal style and is an ode to a night spent forgetting the heaviness of the world's problems.

"There seems to be a theme developing in my career this summer... 'tip it on back,' 'country & cold cans,' the opening song to the show 'Weeds,'" laughed Bentley.  "When we were recording this album, I knew right away I wanted this song to be a single, and I really hoped we would get to it sooner than later.  The fans have been asking for it all summer, so it was a no brainer choice for me."
