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:
rule #1 -you should never leave your company's twitter open at work.. Guess I will have some fun with this. – Dierks
— CMT (@CMT) January 15, 2014
And Dierks definitely had fun.
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.
