Dierks Bentley to Perform Special Album Release Party at the Ryman on June 7

If you’re planning to be in Nashville during CMA Fest (June 7–10), and you’ve got an extra $45, Dierks Bentley would like to request your presence at the Ryman Auditorium on June 7.

On the eve of the release of his upcoming ninth studio album, The Mountain, Dierks will perform the album’s 13 tracks during a late-night concert at the Ryman. Before Dierks hits the stage at 11 p.m. CT, Lanco will warm up the crowd at 10 p.m.

Tickets range in price from $45 to $80, with proceeds supporting the Opry Trust Fund’s mission to help those in the country music industry by offering financial assistance during their time of need.

“This album started as the smallest seed of an idea,” said Dierks. “It was inspired by where I am in my life right now, but also by the people I meet out on the road who triumph over hardship every day. We all share this underlying sense of gratitude and hope, which really became the base of The Mountain, so I wanted to introduce it as a whole story for the first time with all the fans in town for CMA Music Fest. Doing it at the Ryman and to help out the Opry Trust Fund makes the night even more special.”

Tickets go on sale on May 18 at 10 a.m. CT, with pre-sale beginning on May 15.
