Sad news to report in country music as Dierks Bentley’s dad passed away Friday (June 1) in Phoenix, at the age of 88.  Dierks confirmed the death in a Twitter message he sent Saturday morning, noting, “It was an honor to comfort him as he left us. Thank you, fans, for the time and understanding.”

Dierks will take time off from performing while attending to his family.  It is expected that he will begin performing again on  June 9th, which is well before his June 21st headlining performance at Country Fest.  You still have to win a pair of 4 day passes, with camping, to see all 4 days of Country Fest.
