With his experience of recording hit singles such as "What I Was Thinkin'" and "Every Mile a Memory" which both landed atop Billboard Hot Country Songs, Dierks Bentley is back with a new album "Feel That Fire", which will carry another smash hit with the same name. Calling the title track as "sums up the message of the album," he has released the song since September 29, 2009.

Coming from the songwriting desk where Bentley teams up with Brett Beavers, Brad Warren and Brett Warren, "Feel That Fire" is a "fun, uptempo party kind of songs and really well-crafted, quality statements about life," according to label president/CEO Mike Dungan. Since making its debut in September, it peaked at number 8 on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and at number 3 on Canadian Radio and Records Country Singles chart, proving Bentley as a major talent.

Having thirteen new tracks, two of which will feature musicians Patty Griffin and Ronnie McCoury, under his belt, Bentley is ready to hit the road to promote his upcoming fourth major studio album. In January, he will be traveling across Canada and United States with fellow Grand Ole Opry member Brad Paisley for two-month tour dates.

As much as enjoying national tour, Bentley will fly to Australia to join Brooks & Dunn for live concerts in the country. He is also going to make live appearances in clubs and festivals in Europe and Japan. In regard of his planned tour, the country music singer revealed, "I don't ever expect to conquer Europe and be a household name over there, but that's not why I'm doing it. Everything I do does not just revolve around reaching some goal or selling some records or winning some award. It revolves around making the most out of every day and the opportunities that come your way."
