Dierks Bentley to Headline Wagon Wheel Festival
Dierks Bentley headlined several of his own concert tours before taking a backseat to Brad Paisley for Brad's American Saturday Night tour. Now, Dierks is back in the driver's seat again. The singer just came off of his widely successful Up on the Ridge tour, and has recently been announced as the headliner for the star-studded Wagon Wheel Country Music Festival.
The family-friendly event is just the kind of diversified audience Dierks, a father of one with another on the way, enjoys. "It's a lot more fun performing when there are more people in the crowd. You'll see [ages] eight to 80," Dierks tells the Kalamazoo Gazette of his shows, before recanting that number to include his little girl. "My daughter [Evie] is two and she's my biggest fan, so we'll have to revise, two to 80."
Dierks will cap off two days of performances by several chart-topping acts including Lee Ann Womack, Craig Morgan, Sara Evans, Jimmy Wayne and Emerson Drive, with more artists expected to be announced soon.
