Dierks Bentley Anxious to Perform New Songs Live

Published On April 24, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Dierks Bentley is closing in on the Number One spot on the country charts with his latest single, “Say You Do.” Fans were introduced to the song late in the Riser tour, and Dierks says he can’t wait to hear and see how the song goes over in concert once his summer tour kicks off.

“The fan reaction to ‘Say You Do’ has been incredible. I mean, we just started playing it towards the end (of the Riser tour), you could already tell it had that stuff that really connects with the audience. The cool thing’s gonna be when we go back out in the summer on the Sounds of Summer tour to see what’s happened to it, because since we left off and now picking back up, the song’s gone from being in the 20s and now it’s up towards Number One, so to see how it’s changed and how the fans are reacting to it. I’ve had a little taste of that with a few shows we’ve done – just one-offs. But getting back out there on the Sounds of Summer tour and see what’s happened to this song is going to be a huge surprise for us, something we’re really looking forward to.”

Dierks has a few festivals on the books, including the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California this weekend, before his Sounds of Summer tour opens on June 5th in Raleigh, North Carolina. The trek features Kip Moore, Canaan Smith and Maddie & Tae.
