Dierks Bentley's Country & Cold Cans tour will make its return in spring 2012. Back on the ticket are the Eli Young Band, who enjoyed the tour's first run, with a combination of Will Hoge and the Cadillac Black also opening select shows.

"Country & Cold Cans was such a great tour last fall," Dierks says. "It's way too much fun to stop, and we knew we had to continue it into the spring and make another run across the U.S. when we get home from Canada and Australia. We're even going to Alaska ... giving new meaning to cold cans. [laughs] I'm excited that EYB is coming out with us again: great dudes and they put on a killer show. I'm also a big fan of both the Cadillac Black and Will Hoge, so I'm looking forward to watching their sets every night."

The trek begins in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre on April 13. Tickets go on sale Feb, 10. Additional dates will be added here as they are announced.

Until then, Dierks is anticipating the release of his sixth studio album, 'Home,' which hits stores Feb. 7. The project includes a duet with Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, 'When You Gonna Come Around,' and the singer's 3-year-old daughter Evie can also be heard on the ballad, 'Thinking of You.'
