It seems like only yesterday that Dierks Bentley was bursting onto the country music scene with his long curly hair and equally playful hit “What Was I Thinking.” But now, the musician is in the ranks of country music royalty, having maintained a 13-year-long career with no signs of slowing down yet. Want proof? How about the upcoming release of his eighth studio album, Black, and his newly announced summer tour dates?

The “Somewhere on a Beach” tour (also the name of his new single) will kick off on May 12 in Holmdel, NJ, at the PNC Bank Arts Center, after his April stint in the UK and Ireland. While Bentley has unleashed a long string of cities he’ll be stopping in, no dates or venue info has been revealed. Check below to see if he’ll be stopping by your neck of the woods, and sit tight as we wait for more info.
