Country stars are big on making major tour announcements, but Dierks Bentley kinda broke the law to share the news about his upcoming Riser Tour. He hacked CMT’s Twitter account!

Of course, it was all in good fun, but starting early this morning, Dierks took to CMT’s Twitter to tease his big news and then to announce that "Up All Night" singer Jon Pardi would be joining him on the road.

In subsequent tweets, he shared that Chase Rise and Chris Young would also be on the Riser Tour. The first leg of the tour will kick off May 9 in Charlotte, N.C. and continue through the summer. More tour dates to be announced. If you don't have a Twitter account, you may want to get one to stay in the loop!
