Tickets On Sale This Friday At 10AM!

Canandaigua, NY – Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will be bringing his BEERS ON ME TOUR to CMAC on July 22nd!  Tickets will go on sale this Friday at 10AM EST.  

Bentley, known for his “focus on stirring, communal moments” and “unforgettable fire” (Indy Star) on stage, will be joined at CMAC with special guests Riley Green and Breland.   

“I wrote a song a few months back with some friends called ‘Beers On Me’ that inspired this year’s tour name,” explains Bentley. “It’s a pretty simple recipe for summer…get your friends together, have a round or two and dive into some great Country music.”

Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on his last album THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. 

Following his 19th No. One hit at Country radio, he continues to climb the chart with his current Top 20 single “Gone.” Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACM’s, CMA’s, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY  nominations. He just recently celebrated his 15-year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. As “he is dedicated to giving fans the best performance possible” (The Tennesseean) as a headliner for national festivals and during his own headlining run, Bentley has also created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting five locations.
