Dierks Bentley's 4-pack Country & Cold Cans EP can't get here soon enough (available 8/21 on iTunes), so our DB Congress president announced each of the new songs as a sneak preview from three separate sites last week!
You can hear Back Porch from Entertainment Weekly; Grab A Beer from Yahoo Music and Summer on Fire from ESPN's Playbook. Dierks had this to say about "Grab A Beer."
"It's kind of a no-brainer...It's probably my favorite [off the EP]. I love the groove, and I love that it's really simple what it's about. There's plenty of beer-drinking songs in country music, but I like how it has a little bit of soulfulness to it. It ended up being kind of dirty and fun, and I think my fans will really enjoy it."
ESPN Playbook also asked Dierks a few questions. Here's one:
Why did you pick the three SEC schools as the places to perform this coming week?
The SEC lives and dies football. I've played those schools over and over again and I know what the kids are like. My brother also went to the University of Georgia. So I picked three schools that will party really hard and I know they will dig the record. It's going to make it fun for them and make it fun for us. You might as well park my tour bus at the Cumberland Heights Recovery Center in Nashville, I'm telling you right now. It's going be 72 hours of non-stop craziness and fun."
