DIERKS BENTLEY SALUTES "RISERS" WITH LIMITED EDITION NECKLACE AVAILABLE NOW

All Proceeds from Necklace Sales Benefit "Miles & Music For Kids"

NASHVILLE, TN - Sept. 16, 2015 – In the final chapter of Dierks Bentley's critically acclaimed GRAMMY, ACM and CMA nominated album RISER, the multi-PLATINUM entertainer has commissioned a limited edition "Riser" necklace available now on Dierks.com and at Nashville's White's Mercantile for $79. All proceeds of the handcrafted 18” gold-chain with a hand-stamped charm design will benefit Bentley's 10th Annual "Miles & Music For Kids."

The one-of-a-kind accessory brings the story full-circle, including Bentley's inspired message that first launched the project: “We are on a journey. The endless cycle of life, love, loss, faith, freedom, and family. We learn from our past to define our future. Everyone has a defining moment in their life, a breakthrough moment, it’s the moment when you choose to be a riser.”

The album that "again elevates himself above the rest of the country pack" (People) continues to impact Country radio, most recently with its title track that follows three consecutive No. ones from the record. To watch the single's raw music video, click here.

Bentley heads into the final run of his headlining 2015 SOUND OF SUMMER TOUR this weekend in New Orleans, LA (9/18) and Alpharetta, GA (9/19). On Nov. 1, he will host the 10th Annual "Miles & Music For Kids" celebrity motorcycle ride and concert, closing out Nashville’s new Ascend Amphitheater opening season. While the event is sold out, a limited number of walk-up rider passes will be available day of event. For more information and for a full list of upcoming tour dates, visit visit:www.dierks.com.
