Oh I remember the day so well. It was for sure one of the most memorable artist visits I have ever had. Back in the early 2000’s my boss calls me on the hotline. He says he has a promising new artist in the building and he wants me to meet him and consider putting him on the air. In walks Dierks Bentley.
Bright eyed, nervous , curly long haired blonde comes strolling in; guitar in hand. I talked to him for a minute and asked him to play his new song, it was “What Was I Thinkin'”. My boss and I exchanged the look, this kid is going to be a big star.
Nineteen #1 hits later, Dierks comes back to Charlotte on his “High Times and Hangovers” tour. He will tour five shows in five nights starting May 11. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday. You can listen to the Tanner in The Morning Show and the Charlie and Debbie Show to win your way in!!
