Dierks Bentley has announced his touring plans for this year. The 'Bourbon in Kentucky' singer will embark on his 2014 Riser Tour in May.

The singer-songwriter is set to release his new album, 'Riser,' on Feb. 25. The album features a mix of energetic, fun songs and harder-hitting, darker material, as evidenced by the lead single, 'I Hold On.'

The tour in support of the album will kick off May 9 in Charlotte, N.C. Bentley is bring along special guests Chris Young, Chase Rice and Jon Pardi.

“This tour is the culmination of everything I've been working on for the past two years, both out on the road and in the studio recording 'Riser,'” Bentley says in a press release.

He adds, "I know what my fans want: a kick ass show, an affordable ticket and a good parking lot scene to get the pre-gaming going! The guys opening the show and getting the party started all know how to put on a great live show, and when it comes time for my set, I can promise that we are going big! I have never been more excited about a tour.”

Specific tour dates have yet to be announced. Tickets for select shows will go on sale beginning Jan. 24 as part of tour promoter Live Nation’s Country Megaticket at Megaticket.com. Additional ticket information will be available in the coming weeks at Dierks.com.

Bentley will likely give a sneak peak at the tour's set list when he headlines at the Tropical Nights Boots in the Sand getaway, which runs from Feb. 23-27 at the Riviera Maya in Mexico. Billy Currington, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer will also headline separate nights of the luxury country music getaway.
