Dierks Whiskey Row Gilbert has been open for little more than a month and already it has established itself as one of the hottest destinations in the Valley. To inaugurate the third and latest location of Dierk’s Bentley’s Whiskey Row Gilbert, country music superstar Kelsea Ballerini performed a free concert to the delight of hundreds of music fans who poured in to the spacious restaurant and concert venue located in Historic Downtown Gilbert.
On Friday, April 7, Bentley himself hit that stage at Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row Gilbert to play for half an hour and mix and mingle with fans before he headed out to headline Country Thunder later that evening. The crowd went wild as he did a short set that included his mega smash “Drunk on a Plane.” He stayed at his establishment for while to greet fans, take photos and sign memorabilia.
Since moving from Phoenix to Nashville, the GRAMMY nominee 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. Known for “traveling his own path...Country music’s most relatable star" (“Esquire”) recently released his eighth studio album BLACK, which ranks as the best-selling release of Bentley's career, after debuting at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Albums Chart and Top Country Albums chart. The critically-acclaimed album has already spawned two No. One hits, the PLATINUM certified chart-topping hit “Somewhere On A Beach” and GOLD “Different For Girls” featuring Elle King. Bentley has now amassed 15 No. 1 songs, 13 GRAMMY nominations and a recent CMA Award winner for Vocal Event of the Year. "The bluegrass picker, the love song singer and the stadium rocker all packaged together” (Associated Press) has been a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade and launched his 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR in January.
