Dierks Bentley has announced a five-date run of consecutive club nights next month on his High Times And Hangovers tour. The Capitol Nashville star will be accompanied at the shows by special guests Cody Canada & The Departed.
The dates will begin on May 11 in South Carolina, with stops in North Carolina and Florida before a closing night on May 15 in Knoxville, Tennessee. All of fifteen years ago, Bentley headlined a “dive bar” tour of the same name, for which Cody Canada & his band of the time, Cross Canadian Ragweed, were the support. Cody Canada & The Departed’s most recent single “Shut Up and Sing,” featuring Todd Snider and Kaitlin Butts, is out now on Underground Sound.
The ties between the two acts run deep: Cody Canada named his first son Dierks, while Bentley acknowledged Cody and Cross Canadian Ragweed in the 2007 hit “Free And Easy,” which contained the line: “Ragweed’s rockin’ on the radio.”
“5 shows in 5 NIGHTS,” posted Bentley on Instagram. “For the first time in a LONG time we’re bringing High Times & Hangovers club tour back…I’ll be playing a few smaller clubs with limited tickets available, but I wanted to see y’all and play a few shows sooner rather than later…so…who’s with me?”
Tickets for the five shows go on sale on Friday (30), with pre-sale access for fan club members from today (27). Dates will comply with CDC regulations in each market.
Bentley’s current single “Gone” climbs 17-15 this week as it celebrates six months on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The song dips 23-27 on Hot Country Songs.
