Are you eagerly watching for the calendar to flip to 2014? Dierks Bentley is. He’s not wishing time away, however; he’s just anxious to release his next album, Riser. But the longer it takes to get the project in stores, the more time he has to work on it.

Dierks tells Country Weekly, “Next year, we’re going out on a big tour and I want to make sure I have the right songs in place to support the fun. We have the heavier songs like ‘I Hold On’ and ‘Riser,’ which I want to get to as a single, but I want to make sure I have the stuff my fans have come to know us for—putting on a little bit of a party and having a good time. I wanted to make sure I had that part of the record covered with a few extra songs.”

While no date has been announced yet for the release of Riser, Dierks’ pals and labelmates Jon Pardi and Eric Paslay have selected Jan. 14 and Feb. 4, respectively, for their new projects. Check out the latest from each here!
