DIERKS BENTLEY TAPPED TO PERFORM AT FOOTBALL’S OPENING GAME FOR 2016 NFL KICK OFF PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI ON NBC SEPT. 8

This Year’s Song of the Summer “Somewhere On A Beach” Fuels PLATINUM Status

NASHVILLE, TN - Aug. 08, 2016 - Aug. 08, 2016- NBC's national broadcast of the 2016 Summer Olympics just announced multi-Platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley will celebrate the start of the NFL season and the Denver Broncos Super Bowl championship, with a special live performance during the first 2016 NFL KICK OFF PRESENTED BY HYUNDAI (NBC & NFL Network at 7:30P ET on 9/8). Developing “a rapport with his fans as a live performer that artists possessing 10 times as much headlining experience can’t boast,” (Charlotte Observer) Bentley will be featured throughout the 60-minute pre game show along with One Republic from Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, as he helps launch the season opener between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos, in a rematch of Super Bowl 50.

As “one of the strongest contenders for song of the summer“ (The Guardian) "Somewhere On A Beach" has been certified PLATINUM by the RIAA. The multi-week No. one lead single from BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville) is followed by the already Top 10 "Different For Girls," featuring 2x Grammy nominated friend Elle King. This week, the disc receives vinyl treatment on Friday (8/12). To celebrate the release, Bentley will visit St. Louis’ Vintage Vinyl for an intimate in-store performance before the night’s 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH Tour stop at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre.

As “he sells out enormous tours, is a perennial favorite of format radio stations, and earns critical acclaim without compromising his artistic vision” (Entertainment Weekly), the multi-PLATINUM entertainer’s 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR has extended the run with additional arena dates through the end of October with Randy Houser.
