Dierks Bentley interviews with Seattle Gay News, February 27

Seattle Gay News is very pleased to announce an upcoming interview with country superstar, CMA award winner and multiple Grammy nominee Dierks Bentley.

The Phoenix native, who now resides in Nashville with his wife and young daughter, recently performed at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremonies in Norway, hosted the CMT network's NASCAR-themed "Supercharged Weekend", and appeared on that same channel's version of the reality series "Cribs".

Bentley's latest full-length effort, Feel That Fire, debuted atop Billboard's country albums chart and landed at #3 on the top 200 albums chart in its first week of release. "What Was I Thinkin'", "Every Mile a Memory", "Come a Little Closer", and "Settle for A Slowdown" are among the singer-songwriter's arsenal of hit singles.

On tour with Brad Paisley, Bentley visits the Seattle area with a performance at the Tacoma Dome on February 28.

Seattle Gay News is excited to feature a unique, one-on-one interview with this talented (and undoubtedly striking) musician a day before his live appearance. We invite you to get familiar with country great Dierks Bentley in our next weekly issue, printing February 27.
