DIERKS BENTLEY GETS “LIVE AND LOUD” WITH CMT SPECIAL ON MARCH 15
 
Bentley’s First-Ever Live Concert DVD Special makes its Television Debut on CMT

 
NASHVILLE – March 9, 2007 – CMT presents the television debut of LIVE AND LOUD AT THE FILLMORE, a concert special featuring Capitol Nashville singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley performing before a sold-out crowd in Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium, premiering on Thursday, March 15 at 8:00 – 9:00 p.m., ET/PT.  Bentley’s first-ever live concert special then makes its DVD debut in stores on Tuesday, March 20, 2007.

This explosive concert special, directed by renowned London-based filmmaker Russell Thomas, features Bentley and his band performing some of his biggest hits, as well as some newer tracks from his critically acclaimed album, Long Trip Alone.  Additional footage takes fans behind the scenes of life on the road for the Phoenix-native.
2006 was Bentley’s best year to date, professionally, with multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award nominations, a No. 1 album, three No. 1 hit singles (“Come A Little Closer,” “Settle for a Slowdown,” and “Every Mile a Memory”) and his first Bud Light sponsored headlining tour.  Bentley’s latest release Long Trip Alone topped Billboard’s country albums chart this past October and has already been certified Gold by the RIAA.   The Spring leg of Bentley’s headlining tour is currently rolling across the country with openers Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert. This coming June, Bentley will be the first mainstream country artist to perform at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn.
