Keith' Urban’s Graffiti U will be in stores April 27 & Dierks Bentley’s long-time dream has come true

Keith Urban’s new album Graffiti U will be in stores April 27. His tour to support the new record has opener Kelsea Ballerini in the U.S. and Lindsay Ell in Canada. As for why there’s a U in the title, it's of course the first letter of his last name and it also means y.o.u. as Keith says his music has never been for him but for the fans.  

Dierks Bentley’s long-time dream has come true: his own festival. The Seven Peaks Music Festival is Aug. 31 thru Sept. 2 in Buena Vista, Colorado. Performers include Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, LANCO and more plus other acts to be named soon. In the wake of the Vegas shootings, Dierks says his approach to security has changed so he’ll have somebody along who’s an ex-Marine that specializes in security. Tickets go on sale April 20 and you can find out more at sevenpeaksfestival.com.  

Finally - the first single from Kenny Chesney's upcoming album is at radio today, ‘Get Along.’ It’s basically about angry people constantly harping on what’s wrong with the world. Kenny says, “we keep getting driven apart and when I heard this song, I was amazed how simply it broke all that stuff down.” Kenny will perform ‘Get Along’ on the ACM Awards April 15.
