DIERKS BENTLEY WRAPS COUNTRY & COLD CANS: BACK TO COLLEGE TOUR

Tune In To "Weeds" This Week To Catch Bentley's Take On The Award Winning Show's Theme Song

NASHVILLE, TN - Aug 24, 2012 - Country music star Dierks Bentley wrapped his Country & Cold Cans: Back to College Tour Wed. night when he and a sea of fans stormed Ole Miss' legendary tailgating grounds, The Grove. The college leg of the tour hit two additional SEC campuses this week, The University of Georgia and The University of South Carolina, to toast the release of Bentley's new COUNTRY & COLD CANS EP that is now available on iTunes.

"This week was a total blast... the shows were killer, and the crowds were big and loud.  I think having a BYOB set up probably helped that," laughed Bentley.  "We topped things off at Ole Miss by crashing a late night house party for a few rounds of flip cup and beer pong.  It's been a little while since I was in college, but it wasn't hard for any of us to fall right back into it.  It was the perfect way for me to end summer, and I can't wait to do it again next year!"

The tone of the jam-packed week was set Mon. afternoon when fans joined Bentley for a high-energy video shoot at the Georgia Theatre for his new single "Tip It On Back." The party spirit spilled into the night at UGA's Legion Field and continued with a sold out crowd at USC the following day.

"Country music and cold cans went hand-in-hand Tuesday night as everything 'got a little sideways' with country singer Dierks Bentley stopping by Columbia's Tin Roof to give USC students an end-of-the-summer party to remember." – The Daily Gamecock

Bentley continues on the road this weekend in Traverse City, MI (8/24) and Lima, OH (8/25). Fans can also catch Bentley's take on Weeds' theme song "Little Boxes" when his version is featured on this Sunday's episode.
