Dierks Bentley kicked off his What the Hell Tour on Thursday (January 19th) in Dayton, Ohio. He’s taking along Jon Pardi and Cole Swindell.
He’s known both of his opening acts for a long time, and he can’t imagine a more perfect name for this new tour.
“This is going to be such a fun tour. I meant that’s the reason why I call it the What the Hell Tour, because both these guys are so fun. I’ve known ‘em now for a long time. I mean, I’ve known Cole since he was selling T-shirts for Luke…His heart is into what he’s doing. He’s so grateful and thankful and is making great records. He’s going out there and his live show is so good. I mean, he really has a great live show,” says Dierks. “And then Jon Pardi is just that. He is a party. He is a big voice, big personality, down-to-earth, but at the same time he’s not afraid to bust on ya and give ya some crap, and he has some hit songs. The song he has out now, which I was so thankful he made a single – ‘Dirt on My Boots’ is such a good song. It’s traditional, but still kind of leans forward and has a modern sound to it and his voice is so good on it. His whole record is so good. So, yeah, it’s gonna be that kind of tour. What the Hell is the perfect name for this tour with Jon and Cole.”
The trek heads to Louisville on Friday (January 20th) and Nashville on Saturday (January 21st).
