Dierks Bentley is rolling out the lineup for his Seven Peaks Music Festival.
And, he’s doing it in a super cool way by playing covers of songs from each respective artist that is set to perform. Usually, we just get a list of all the performers at one time for any given festival, but Dierks is getting creative this time around.
After his recent cover of East Bound And Down to announce that Riley Green and Parker McCollum are joining him for his “Beers On Me” tourthis summer, he’s doing a similar thing to announce his line up for his labor day weekend country festival in Buena Vista, Colorado.
In another post on Instagram, he said it was the best lineup yet:
“The mountains are calling me and my favorite lineup so far to @sevenpeaksfest this year.”
And the first artist that’s going to be taking the stage? Mr. Kip Moore, which Dierks revealed with an awesome bluegrass-y cover of Kip’s #1 hit “Somethin’ ‘Bout A Truck”:
I think we need more festival announcements like this. How cool is it to hear an artist covering such a variety of songs from other artists? Though it seems like this was quite a labor-intensive, time consuming process, I think it was well worth it. I’ve never seen someone do it quite like this before.
And, a few other familiar names will also be hitting the stage…
This Labor Day weekend, in the mountains of Buena Vista, Colorado, Dierks’ Seven Peaks Fest will feature headlining performances by Keith Urban and Dierks Bentley Bentley himself.
Kip Moore, Old Crow Medicine Show, Randy Houser, Hot Country Knights, Clay Walker, Travis Denning, Ingrid Andress, Molly Tuttle, Mark Chesnutt, Caitlyn Smith, Hailey Whitters, Pam Tillis, Callista Clark, Jackson Dean, Ray Fulcher, Willie Jones, Caroline Jones, Rapidgrass, Reyna Roberts, Payton Smith and Aydamn will also perform. “Getting the green light to book artists and plan our third annual SevenPeaks was the single best piece of news I’ve gotten in the last year.
It is my favorite weekend of the year, and I know every fan and artist that has been there will tell you the same. It’s the only time my band and crew ever show up to a gig a week early too…because we can’t wait to be out there with our friends and fans soaking up the Colorado sunshine and mountain vibes.”
