The Amphitheater at The Wharf has spent 2014 establishing itself at the country music capitol of the Gulf Coast. This venue continues to bring country fans the best on the scene with a performance from superstar Dierks Bentley.
During his college years, Bentley moved from the desert sands of Tempe, Ariz. to the musical streets of Nashville. Bentley released his debut album “Don’t Leave Me in Love,” but his 2003 self-titled sophomore effort and its number one single “What I Was Thinking” established his reputation on the national level. Country music fans quickly fell in love with Bentley’s smooth vocal delivery and pop country sound riddled with old school style and his debut album marked the beginning of a successful career that has lost no momentum.
Bentley will be performing in support of his latest album, “Riser.” Bentley recruited long time co-writer Ross Copperman for production duties. During the first week of its release, “Riser” quickly earned the number one spot on the U.S. Top Country Albums Chart. Singles such as “I Hold On” and “Drunk on a Plane” have already broken the top 10. Judging from the venue’s beachside location, new tracks such as “Sounds of Summer” and “Pretty Girls” should be quite complementary.
