Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will bring his Country & Cold Cans Tour back to the U.S. this spring, playing 20 cities to be later announced. Of the 20 cities, Dierks Bentley will return to Indiana, Pa, on May 5, 2012, at Kovalchick Complex.

Tickets to Dierks Bentley, with special guests Eli Young Band and Will Hoge, are priced at $25 and $35 and go on sale March 23 at 10:00 a.m. Ticket prices include a $2 facility fee and may be purchased online through the Kovalchick Complex website, by dialing 800-298-4200, or at the Kovalchick Complex Box Office.

“Country & Cold Cans was such a great tour last fall . . . . It’s just way too much fun to stop, and we knew we had to continue it into the spring and make another run across the U.S. when we get home from Canada and Australia. We’re even going to Alaska . . . giving new meaning to cold cans,” laughed Bentley. “I’m excited that EYB is coming out with us again . . . great dudes, and they put on a killer show. I’m also a big fan of both the Cadillac Black and Will Hoge, so I’m looking forward to watching their sets every night.”

Bentley recently geared up for the release of his sixth studio album, Home, on February 7. The new album’s anthemic second single and title track received an Academy of Country Music nomination for Song Of The Year and is pushing its way up the Top 10 of the radio charts. Billboard noted that the song is “Maybe his strongest lyrical statement to date, the single reminds us of a late 70s Haggard track —the ultimate compliment. The past few years have seen some of the best work of his career, and this is another example.” The lead single “Am I The Only One” already peaked in the number one spot and has been certified gold. Bentley’s earlier albums have earned him nine number one hits, over 5 million total album sales, and 10 Grammy nominations.

Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl” has been certified platinum, with sales of over 1.4 million downloads, and was named Billboard magazine’s Number One Country Song of the Year. The band has performed the hit on Late Show With David Letterman, Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and at the American Country Awards. Their album Life at Best made its debut at number three on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and number six on the Billboard 200. It came in at number one on the iTunes Country Albums Chart and number two on the iTunes All Genre Chart.

Critically acclaimed Nashville singer/songwriter Will Hoge’s seventh studio album, aptly titled Number Seven, explores the struggles of the heart that are Hoge’s songwriting stock in trade, while revealing enticing range and freshness on the sonic front. The Philadelphia Inquirer noted its “raw, impassioned power,” while the Chicago Sun-Times called it “a rich, textured album.” For the past 10 years, Hoge has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, building his fan base by playing hundreds of shows a year. Hoge recently made his late-night TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
