Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum Honors Dierks Bentley With "Every Mile A Memory" Exhibit

He was Mr. September on their 2013 calendar, but in 2016, Dierks Bentley is being honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum on a whole new level.

With the Dierks Bentley: Every Mile a Memory exhibit, the CMHOF will will explore the life and career of Dierks, opening March 4, 2016, and running through Sept. 6, 2016. The exhibition will include stage wear, guitars, song manuscripts, photos and more from Bentley’s personal collection.

No word on what will be included in the "and more" from his personal collection, but we're hoping there's a DB Congress mention in there somewhere!

To celebrate the launch of the exhibit, the museum will host a special appearance by the “Somewhere on a Beach” singer on Saturday, March 12, at 2 p.m., in the museum’s 800-seat CMA Theater. Bentley will discuss his career and perform a short acoustic set. The program will be hosted by museum editor Peter Cooper.

“It’s crazy to be considered for something like this,” shares Bentley. “The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is home to the most revered and influential country artists of all time. Just being in the building as a visitor is humbling, but to actually be featured in one of the museum’s exhibits is something I never would have believed if you’d suggested it back when I started chasing this dream down on Broadway. I’m going to have to go down there to see it for myself to really make it sink in.”

“A master of reinvention, Dierks continues to confound our expectations with music that resonates, both commercially and critically,” says museum CEO Kyle Young. “Every mile, every day, every song in Dierks’ remarkable career creates new memories for him and for his fans. I know our visitors will enjoy getting a peek inside some of those memories.”

The March 12 museum program, featuring Bentley in conversation and performance, is included with museum admission and free to museum members. The program will be streamed live at Seating is limited; museum members can reserve tickets via beginning at 10 a.m., on Feb. 10.

Bentley is offering pre-sale tickets to his fan club members, Feb. 10-16. Fans can sign up to join The Congress and become a member of Bentley’s fan club. Presale on Wednesday, Feb 10th begins at 10 am central.

    First a Co-Host, Now a Nominee! Dierks Bentley Nominated for Two ACM Awards

    For the first time ever, Dierks Bentley will co-host the ACM Awards with buddy Luke Bryan. But this isn't his first nomination.  In fact, he's been given the nod but not the win for Male Vocalist of the Year so many times over the last ten+ years, fans are referring to Dierks as the Susan Lucci of the awards shows.

    Let's hope the hosting gig gives him good luck to break that spell!

    Dierks is also nominated for Video of the Year for his heart-wrenching story of a homeless mom and her kids, "rising" above the adversity.

    The 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airs Sunday, April 3, 2016 on CBS at 8 pm Eastern.

    Best of luck to our president--we know you'll do a great job co-hosting and thousands of fingers are crossed that the ACM members agreed with us and voted for you!  We can't wait to hear/see your acceptance speech!  Don't forget to mention your DB Congress!

    (Openers vary on festival dates)

    Bentley sets the tone for this year's 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR by hand-selecting breakout Grammy nominee Cam who will kick things off before powerhouse vocalist Randy Houser takes the stage.  

    Newcomer Tucker Beathard, will also join Bentley, Houser and Cam on the SOAB tour. Tucker had an early immersion into songwriting via his dad, two-time BMI "Songwriter of the Year" Casey Beathard. It was Tucker's rebellious attitude as a teenager that inspired the lyrics for the chart-topping hit "Homeboy" recorded by Eric Church. You may have also seen Tucker featured in a recent episode of ABC's Nashville.

    Since moving from Phoenix to Nashville in the 1990s, Bentley has established his own artistic trail in country music. Instead of rehashing proven formulas, he’s doggedly reinvented his sound and subsequently developed an uncommon mix of commercial success and critical respect. RISER debuted at #1 on the Billboard country album chart, and its trio of chart-topping singles upped his career tally to 13 No one. songs as a songwriter and artist. He’s now amassed 13 GRAMMY nominations and dozens of other award show nominations. Additionally, Bentley has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and will co-host the 51st Annual ACM Awards with Luke Bryan April 3 on CBS. 

    Keep checking for more tour dates and fan club presale announcements.  Mega tickets are on sale now, but individual shows will be announced in the coming weeks. Congress presales are usually the Tuesday before the Friday general public sale dates for individual shows.

    Meet and Greets for select tour dates should be available to apply for on the Congress page of in the next few weeks!

    Hope to see many of the DB Congress reps out there on the 'Beach' tour this year!
