The Wharf Amphitheater continues to keep regional country fans satisfied. For this round, pop-country superstar Dierks Bentley will serve as the headliner of this four-band lineup. When he arrived in Nashville, Bentley immersed himself in the country music scene. His experience in Music City (both onstage and behind the scenes) led to the release of his 2003 self-titled debut, which included his first of many number-one singles, “What Was I Thinkin’.” Now Bentley is on the Burning Man Tour in support of his highly successful ninth studio release, “The Mountain.”
Tourmate Jon Pardi will give his Orange Beach crowd a dose of his latest single, “Heartache Medication.” This country singer-songwriter’s modern country ballad is a mix of beautiful twang and down-home alto vocal work in the key of Hank Williams Sr. With a steady release of singles since his 2016 album “California Sunrise,” Pardi just might have plans for a new album in the future.
Country up-and-comer Tenille Townes is also lending support. While most of her catalog is riddled with pop-country anthems, Townes’ single “I Kept the Roses” is something special. Pulling inspiration from the classic years of Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette, this heartbreaking ballad is guaranteed to pull a tear or two.
Hot Country Knights will open the evening. This group channels the spirit of ’80s’ pop country with wonderful results. Those who look through the band’s clever disguises might be surprised at this band’s impressive lineup.
