Why Dierks Bentley’s Beers on Me Tour Is Much More Than a Summer Party

If you ask Dierks Bentley, now is the time to raise a glass to live music.

After spending much of the pandemic making memories with family in Colorado, the country singer is back onstage as part of the Beers on Me tour. And nearly one week into the shows, Dierks has fallen in love with life on the road all over again.

“It was everything you dreamed and more,” the Grammy nominee exclusively shared with E! News just days after kicking off his 2021 tour. “I thought it was just so fun to be out there with my own band and crew riding the bus and all the dumb, fun things we do away from the stage. Riding bikes, going mountain biking, playing pickle-ball. I love the guys in my band and crew and it’s so nice to be around them.”
