Dierks Bentley will hit the road this summer! The country star has announced the first details of his 2015 Sounds of Summer tour.

Bentley's 40-city trek is set to kick off June 5 in Raleigh, N.C. Specific dates and venues have yet to be announced, but the tour includes stops that span the entire U.S., from San Diego, Calif., to Boston, Mass.

"There have been tours in my career that I thought would be impossible to top, and the past 12 months certainly rank as some of the best and most fun nights of my life," Bentley says. "I expect 2015 to beat all of it."

Kip Moore, Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith will join Bentley as openers.

"Kip, Maddie & Tae and Canaan are three of the hottest rising artists out there right now, and I feel fortunate to be spending the summer with them," Bentley adds. "No one is going to have more fun this summer than us!"

Specific dates and ticket information will be available at Bentley's official website. Some of the shows are part of Live Nation's Country Megaticket.

In addition to these tour stops, Bentley is also lined up for the inaugural Shaky Boots Festival, a pre-Super Bowl concert and a performance during Mardi Gras this year.
