NASHVILLE, TN – April 13, 2012 – Country music singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has been added to the list of artists taking part in the fifth annual Record Store Day on April 21 with a special acoustic performance at independent record store Easy Street Records’ Queen Anne location in downtown Seattle, WA at 1:00P PT.
“Record Store Day is such a great event that has hardly had any attention in country music,” said Bentley. “Some of the coolest exclusive product comes out on this day at indy retailers, and I wanted country fans to be able to get in on the action. I may have a few surprise special guests up my sleeve too. I’m really excited to take over Easy Street for an hour that afternoon…Seattle is such a great music town.”
Across the country and globe for one day only, artists including Coldplay, Foster the People, Ryan Adams and The Black Keys will be releasing Record Store Day exclusives, making special appearances or performing at brick and mortar record stores to celebrate the art of music.
