Dierks Bentley Starts Radio Show

Dierks Bentley is taking a cue from the Grand Ole Opry and will host and program his first radio show, The Thread, on Nashville’s 650 AM WSM every Monday at 2:00 p.m. CT. The show will debut on March 15 and will also air online at wsmonline.com and be available through iTunes as a podcast.

The Thread will feature a variety of music, ranging from bluegrass and singer/songwriter to classic and contemporary country, all hand-picked by Dierks. He will craft each hour with his favorite stories and songs, take callers and have in-studio guests.

“Putting this radio show together is the most fun I’ve had in a long, long time,” says Bentley. “I named it The Thread because it’s my chance to go back to all the music that influenced me . . . it’s the artists and songs that tie us all together as a genre. I get to pick the music, tell stories and do just about whatever I want with that hour . . . it’s anything goes."
