June 30, 2009 — Dierks Bentley tried to create a party atmosphere when he recorded his current single, "Sideways," and now it's given him a great reason to throw a real one.
The song is No. 1 on the Billboard country chart, joining the title track as his second chart-topping release from the Feel That Fire album.
"We've been kicking our show off with 'Sideways' and it gets the party started quickly," he says. "Thanks to all the fans that have fun, get wild and a little 'sideways' during our show because we feed off of that energy. I can't wait for the No. 1 party for this one! I always said that this song would sound best blasting through boat speakers. We might just need to celebrate out at Party Cove."
Dierks presumably means the Party Cove at Percy Priest Lake in Nashville, though there are also Party Coves at Lewisville Lake in Texas, Lake Of The Ozarks in Arkansas and at Kincaid Lake in Illinois. And likely others, too.
Most of Dierks' partying this week will come in the form of concert appearances. He's slated to play Kansas City on Thursday; Eufaula, Okla., on Friday; and Killeen, Texas on Saturday.
