Dierks Bentley takes over CMT’s Twitter to announce 2014 Riser Tour details

Uh oh, looks like someone's been a bad, bad boy. 

Just the way I like 'em. 

Not content to send out a simple press release or spend days teasing fans with mystery clues or promises of a big announcement to come, Dierks Bentley decided to announce details of his upcoming tour a bit more subtly … by hacking CMT's Twitter account. 

This morning (1/15), CMT's Twitter went a little crazy. The first clue that something was off was this tweet: 

And Dierks definitely had fun.

First he posted a selfie to prove to fans that he was in fact in charge of CMT's Twitter. Dierks then raided the CMT vending machines before tweeting out details about his 2014 Riser Tour. 

Before Dierks ended up being jokingly manhandled off CMT's Twitter account and off their property, we learned that the Riser Tour will feature Chris Young, Jon Pardi and Chase Rice as openers and will launch May 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The announcement comes just one day after Luke Bryan announced that Dierks will join him for a couple of his stadium tour stops this summer. 

Bentley’s next album, Riser, hits stores February 25.
