Confirmed performers include Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Brandi Carlile, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and more!

Kindness Isn’t Canceled Spotlight: Artists Help Employees of Broadway Bars

It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.

We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.

Since Nashville’s Broadway, a famous strip of bars and restaurants that is visited by millions each year, is now closed, superstars Dierks Bentley and the men of Florida Georgia Line decided to use their resources to make a difference.

Both artists have their own bars in Nashville, Dierks’ Whiskey Row, and Hubbard and Kelley’s FGL House. Unfortunately, since many of the employees, including bartenders, waitresses, waiters, and management staff are being laid off or are temporarily out of work, due to the pandemic, people may be struggling to make ends meet.

To do what he can to help out his employees, Bentley gifted $1000 to each of his 90 employees, empathizing with those employees who work for tips. In full, the singer spent $90K to help out his staff. The men of FGL followed Bentley’s lead, vowing to gift $1000 to each of their 117 employees of FGL House. They shared their reasons for their contribution via Instagram.

Although this may just seem like a small feat, it reminds us all to help out where we can. It reminds us all to virtually check in on our friends, families, and even our co-workers. Stories like this remind us that kindness goes a long way!

Know somebody spreading incredible acts of kindness during these difficult times? E-mail us at: [email protected].

We look forward to continuing to keep bringing you more stories that remind us that Kindness Isn’t Canceled. Join us in our campaign, and buy yourself a t-shirt here. As always, we appreciate your support of  NYCountry Swag.

Hot Country Knights Finally Debut Their Original Song “Pick Her Up”

Hot Country Knights

The third or fourth best cover band in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, according to their YouTube page, the Hot Country Knights released their debut original song on Thursday titled “Pick Her Up” featuring Travis Tritt. The 90s-inspired, honky-tonk track was written and produced by Dierks Bentley along with Jim and Brett Beavers.

“The sound behind ‘Pick Her Up’ is Hot Country Knights 101…it’s so hot that I have advised the radio promotion department at UMG to wear oven mitts when delivering it to Country radio,” front-man Doug Douglason (who is actually Bentley) said in a recent press release.

The Hot Country Knights are really just the alter-egos of Bentley and his touring band. In a video both Bentley and the Knights shared on social media, Bentley ran into Douglason at his bar in Nashville. He recalled the time where Douglason gave him a pep talk before one of his first-ever shows. To return the favor, Bentley let the group perform a song for him. He was so impressed that he signed them to his record label to record some original material. The end of the video revealed that an album is being released in the spring of 2020. Watch it here:

“Without HCK, you would have never heard of Jerks Gentley,” the Hot Country Knights wrote in a tweet. “Now 20-some years later, he’s helping us get OUR shot…NOT THAT WE NEEDED HIS HELP…but if we did need some help (WHICH WE DON’T) it would involve a soon-to-be smash hit featuring Travis Tritt and an upcoming album.”

The joke began back in 2015 when Bentley and some friends, including Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, Randy Houser, and Charles Kelley played a small club in Nashville pretending to be an old cover band performing a reunion show. They all wore wigs and 90s attire on stage. The band took a long hiatus but found their fame again when they joined Bentley on his Mountain High and Burning Man tours. Their act was more of a comedic bit as they covered country songs from the 1990s while making jokes and dancing around the stage. NYCountry Swag actually caught Hot Country Knights return back in February of 2018 when they performed during CRS. 

Along with Douglason, the Hot Country Knights are comprised of bassist Trevor Travis, lead guitarist Marty Ray (“Rayro”) Roburn, keytar/fiddle player Terotej (“Terry”) Dvoraczekynski, steel guitarist Barry Van Ricky and percussionist Monte Montgomery.

“Pick Her Up” is available wherever buy or stream music and will impact Country radio on February 3rd.

To keep up with the Hot Country Knights, follow them on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Before Hot Country Knights took to the stage, performing a parody of 90s country songs, VIP ticket holders were lucky enough to witness an acoustic set by Bentley himself in the VIP tent. The singer, supported by his band, sang bluegrass versions of some of his biggest songs, including “Woman, Amen”, “I Hold On,” and “Burning Man.” NYCountry Swag followers had the opportunity to win VIP access to the special performance on our Instagram giveaway contest. Congratulations to our winner, Catrina Cotrone!

The first true opener of the night was one of our Swag Spotlight alums, Tenille Townes. With her sassy attitude and killer vocals, the songstress spotlighted her fresh sound and honest lyrics on the big stage, proving why she’s one of our 2019 Artist to Watch. Kicking it off with her poignant love song, “White Horse” followed by “Where You Are,” Townes continued to win over new fans throughout her performance. She went on to sing “Jersey On the Wall,” which she added “This is one that’s very close to my heart,” and “Come As You Are,” but it was the end of her set that was her sweet spot. The singer-songwriter covered U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” as the audience sang along to each and every word. Townes ended her incredible set with her debut single, “Somebody’s Daughter.” For more about Townes and her undeniable talent click here.

Country crooner, Jon Pardi took the stage next, as fans came in droves, packing out the venue. Pardi brought the energy throughout his hour-long set, opening with his song, “What I Can’t Put Down,” followed by “My Next Broken Heart,” a Brooks and Dunn classic, which he lent his voice to on the record REBOOT. He continued the momentum, singing songs like “Lucky Tonight,” “Ain’t Always The Cowboy,” “Me and Jack”, and “Heartache Medication.” The latter are both said to be songs off Pardi’s forthcoming studio album.

Fans went crazy throughout his whole set, but the crowd was extra loud when Pardi sang his most popular songs, “Heartache on the Dance Floor,” “Head Over Boots,” and “Dirt on My Boots.” The singer even admitted in his set that “The more [he] gets out of Nashville, the more hardcore country fans there are.” Pardi succeeded in bringing true blue country music to New York, and fans loved every minute of it.

Shortly after, the man of the night, Dierks Bentley took the stage. Bentley left it all out on stage, singing his most vulnerable songs, his party songs, and everything in between, all while remaining humble and endearing the whole time. His set began with “Burning Man,” and “Up on the Ridge” featuring images of mountains in the background, which added to the ambiance. The backdrop quickly changed, during Bentley’s epic performance of “Somewhere on a Beach,” which he added fit the venue perfectly. The recording artist continued to sing fan-favorite song including the romantic ode to women, “Woman, Amen,” the endearing, “Black,” and of course, “I Hold On.”

The entertainer shifted gears soon thereafter, singing his party anthem, “5-1-5-0” and of course, his newest single, “Living.” Check out an exclusive clip from the performance on our Instagram in the video above. Bentley also brought Pardi back out to sing one of Bentley’s favorite songs by Pardi called, “Missin’ You Crazy.” The pair really played off each other’s energy and it was evident by the vibes in the room that fans approved of the duet.

Townes also came back on stage to sing a mesmerizing rendition of “Different For Girls” with Bentley. The headliner sang his praises for Townes, adding that she’s “paving the way,” for women and comparing her talent to likes of Patty Loveless and Martina McBride. While on stage, Townes proved that she knows her 90s country, singing some of both “Strawberry Wine” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.”

Although we loved the duets, one of our favorite moments of the night was when Bentley sang his beautiful song “Riser.” Before performing the song, he shared his appreciation for law enforcement, firefighters, volunteers, the military, and those who serve us every day. Bentley added “I like to think these songs are for people that are no longer here, what they would say now. I feel like, they would say, don’t just go through life being a survivor, go through life being a riser, make the most of every day.” His statement and performance of “Riser” surely brought chills to each and every fan there.

Soon thereafter, Bentley kicked off the acoustic part of his set, as he made his way to the B-stage to sing some of his more vulnerable songs. Of course, in typical Bentley fashion, he made sure to shotgun a beer with a fan on stage first. The singer-songwriter went on to sing, “Come a Little Closer” and “Say You Do.”

Keeping fans entertained, Bentley made his way back to the main stage, singing an electrifying version of his song “What Was I Thinkin’” and brought DJ AyDamn on stage to sing “Sideways.” Of course, Bentley came back to the stage after the song to sing two songs for his encore. In true Bentley fashion, he came back to the stage dressed in a full-pilot getup to sing “Drunk on a Plane.” The superstar ended his set with “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go),” the perfect song to end the exhilarating night of music on a high note.

Dierks Bentley Brings His “Burning Man Tour” to PNC Bank Arts Center in NJ

According to Dierks Bentley himself, “Jersey never disappoints and always brings the energy.” That is an extremely accurate statement to describe his stop of the Burning Man Tour at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey. Joined by Tenille Townes, Jon Pardi, and even Hot Country Knights, Bentley’s alter-ego’s 90’s country band, the show was definitely a night to remember.

Burning Man Tour

Hot Country Knights set was up first. Once on stage, the band was met with some skepticism from the audience, that was until they figured out who the lead singer truly was. Although average concert-goers may have missed it, the singer with the animal print muscle tee, high waisted bootleg jeans and mullet was none other than Dierks Bentley himself. This set was really a sight to see, as Bentley’s band joined him by dressing up in 90’s outfits and wigs and playing music that sounded like it came straight from that decade. The 20-minute set ended too quickly, as the audience, and even members of the band erupted into laughter and applause.

Tenille Townes Burning Man Tour

Next up was the first true opener, country singer-songwriter Tenille Townes. Opening with “White Horse,” The 25-year-old Canadian native shocked the audience with her power vocals and poignant lyrics. As her set went on, it was clear that the audience was getting more and more into her music. With each song, more people stood to their feet and swayed along. After performing “Jersey on the Wall,” Townes told the audience that this was her first time playing at PNC, and it definitely lived up to the hype. She went on to cover, U2’s, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and ended her set with her debut single, “Somebody’s Daughter.” For more about Townes and her incredible talent click here.

Jon Pardi Burning Man Tour

Jon Pardi was next to take the stage– and he for sure brought the party. Opening with “What I Can’t Put Down,” followed by a Brooks & Dunn cover of, “My Next Broken Heart,” which was featured on their album REBOOT fans knew they were in for a treat. He continued by playing a few songs off of his 2016 album, California Sunrise. Eventually, he got to “Heartache Medication,” his current single off of his new album which is due September 27th. Being that he was playing to a Jersey crowd, Pardi would’ve been remiss not to honor a song to a New Jersey icon. So that’s exactly what he did by playing Bon Jovi’s, “Wanted Dead or Alive,” which was sung word for word by the audience. Pardi ended his high energy set by playing three of his classics– “Heartache on the Dance Floor,” “Head Over Boots,” and “Dirt On My Boots.”

Dierks Bentley Burning Man Tour

After two, well, technically three amazing openers, it was finally time for Bentley to take the stage. Starting with “Burning Man,” Bentley captivated the audience with his simple stage set up and powerful presence. After performing his hit song, “Somewhere on a Beach,” Bentley paid homage to the Jersey Shore and even did a call-response with the audience to see where they were from– the choices being north, south, or central Jersey– central being met with the loudest response. Bentley followed with “Black,” and “I Hold On,” two slow and deeply meaningful songs. Those were then contrasted by the upbeat songs “5-1-5-0” and “Living,” Bentley’s current single. It was refreshing to see those two sides of Bentley, both the serious and lightheartedness of his personality was really able to shine through.

About halfway through the set, Bentley brought Jon Pardi back out onto the stage to perform, “Missin’ You Crazy,” Bentley’s favorite song by Pardi. This was followed by Tenille Townes coming back on stage to teach Bentley a little something about female country singers. She sang a tidbit of “Strawberry Wine,” belted out some of “Man! I Feel Like a Woman,” and eventually joined Bentley in singing his massive hit, “Different for Girls.” Next, while singing “Am I The Only One,” Bentley made his way through the amphitheater and crowd to tiny B-stage near the back of the venue.

Dierks Bentley

Once on the B-stage, Bentley pulled a fan onto the stage, swiftly shotgunned a beer, and began a quick acoustic set which consisted of “Come a Little Closer” and “Say You Do,” before returning back to the main stage to finish out the show. Although nearing the end, the crowd was still as rowdy as ever while singing along to “What was I Thinkin’” and “Sideways.” These were the last two songs before the encore, as Bentley thanked the crowd for another amazing and unforgettable show. Walking out to do the encore in a full-on pilot getup, the audience already knew what was coming, as “Drunk on a Plane” was sung in unison by the whole crowd. Bentley played “Free and Easy” to end what was an exhilarating night at PNC.

Dierks Bentley’s Burning Man Tour will be around all summer so make sure not to miss it. The tour will also be stopping at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on August 2nd, so get your tickets now!

Dierks Bentley Features His Adorable Son in “Living” Music Video

Dierks Bentley Living

Country star, Dierks Bentley released an adorable video for his current single “Living”. The video shows Bentley going around town doing tons of fun activities with his son, Knox.  “It’s basically just me and Knox, just a day in the life,” Bentley explains to People. “The two of us, just doing what we’re doing when we’re off the road, which is a lot. We pack a lot into one every day.”

Watch the video below!

His latest album The Mountain is all about appreciating life and nature. The opening lyrics of “Living”: “This morning I got up at 6:01, I walked out and saw the rising sun and I drank in it, like whiskey”; one would believe he got up voluntarily to watch the sunrise. However, the video puts an ironic twist to it as Knox runs down the stairs and jumps on his father. Bentley gets out of bed looking exhausted and steps on his son’s toys as the sun from the window blinds him; definitely not drinking it in like whiskey. To Bentley’s displeasure, Knox begins to play the drums. His father comes in the room to stop him but then Bentley sees the look on his son’s face and picks up a guitar and the two start a jam session at six in the morning.

After spending time in the backyard, Bentley and Knox hit the road for some more fun activities including the Water Park, the arcade laser tag, karaoke, go-carting, ice cream and more. At the ice cream parlor, Bentley gets jealous of his son when the attractive women behind the counter starts to flirt with Knox.

Dierks Bentley Living

At the end of the video, Bentley and Knox cash in their tickets to win a big plush bear at the prize stand. As they are walking back to their car, they pass a mother holding her young daughter’s hand. Knox, being the little gentleman he is, runs back and gives the little girl the big stuffed bear. The two hug and Knox runs back to Bentley, who high fives his son. A heart-warming moment to an already loveable music video.

This video emphasizes the difference between breathing and living. You have to appreciate your life and take advantage of every opportunity you get. Living for Bentley is spending quality time with his son and he does not want to miss out on his time being a father. 

Knox’s is Bentley’s youngest child at five years old. He has two other daughters, Evalyn “Evie” Day (10) and Jordan Catherine (8).

Keep up with Dierks Bentley on his socials, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

You can see Bentley on his Burning Man Tour with Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and Hot Country Knights. The tour is stopping at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ July 26th and at Jones Beach on Long Island August 2nd.

In order to celebrate CMA Award day (tonight!), ABC’s Good Morning America brought their set to the rooftop of Dierks Bentley’s bar ‘Whiskey Row’ in Nashville. Country megastar, Dierks Bentley caught up with GMA correspondents, Lara Spencer and Adam Rippon, both before and after his sensational performance of his hit “Woman, Amen” and his beautiful song, “Living.”  Watch his performance by clicking here.

Baring the brisk temperature, Bentley and his band played the heartfelt jam, “Woman Amen” first, in front of an intimate crowd of fans, who gathered on the rooftop. Although he did not need an introduction, Spencer got the crowd pumped stating “Right now here’s Dierks with his number one hit “Woman, Amen” from his album The Mountain.

The iconic view of Broadway in Nashville acted as the perfect backdrop for the three-time CMA award winner’s performance. As the singer-songwriter entertained the audience, the camera panned to the fans who were all singing along to the beautiful lyrics. Bentley gave country music fans a taste of his highly anticipated performance at the CMA Award show tonight.

Just before his encore performance of “Living”, Spencer had some fun with the recording artist, discussing how the singer makes yearbooks for each and every one of his tours, his upcoming birthday (and giving him Whiskey-infused cupcakes to celebrate), as well as, reminding fans about his upcoming tour, ‘Burning Man Tour’ with special guests, Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes, and Hot Country Knights, slated to begin in Canada this January.

One of the most charming moments in the short interview was when Bentley gave all of the credit to the fans after Spencer asked how he keeps his energy up. The country star shared that he practices staying in the moment, as well as stating, “Oh man, I feed off the crowd so much. Just these fans that came up, some of them have been here sine 1:00 this morning. I take that energy with me all day. It’ll feed me the rest of the day. It’s all about the fans. Especially CMA Awards.” Check out the conversation here.

Just after this sentiment, Bentley and his band took the stage again to close out the segment with “Living”. Stay tuned for another performance from Bentley and many other country music artists tonight at 8 pm on ABC during the CMA Awards, and make sure to follow us on Twitter, as we live-tweet our favorite moments from what is sure to be an epic night of music.

Dierks Bentley Debuts “Burning Man” Music Video Featuring Brothers Osborne

Platinum-selling country superstar, Dierks Bentley, has released the scorching official music video for his latest top 20 single “Burning Man,” featuring Grammy-nominated country duo Brothers Osborne.  Featured on Bentley’s ninth studio album, The Mountain, “Burning Man” was penned by Bobby Pinson and Luke Dick. This song depicts the idea of being a walking contradiction and the growth of the human spirit.

Partially filmed at the Salton Sea in the California desert, director and collaborator Wes Edwards combined the jagged terrain and stunning ocean views with a glimpse of the singer-songwriter’s tour life which executed the song’s essence. In a recent press release, Bentley said, “This song is a personal reflection and it was important to me that you feel that with the video.”

Though shooting this video for “Burning Man” was no walk in the park, Bentley was pleased with the way it turned out. “The Bros and I flew out to the desert in July to shoot this…several people on the crew had heat strokes, two cars got stuck in the sand and we had to have a rattlesnake wrangler with us at all times…but we got the shots!” shared Bentley in a recent press release.  “Burning Man” is up for a 2018 CMA Award for Musical Event of the Year. Additionally, the multi-platinum singer-songwriter received two other nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for The Mountain.

Bentley will wrap up his ‘Mountain High Tour’ with Brothers Osborne and LANCO this upcoming weekend in Southern California. Visit https://www.dierks.com/ for further information and follow Bentley on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for updates and future announcements.
