DIERKS BENTLEY DELIVERS HIS NEW HITS AND ADDS HIS OWN BLUEGRASS TOUCH TO AN ADELE SMASH WHEN CMT.COM PREMIERES "UNPLUGGED" ON TUESDAY, MAY 29

NASHVILLE - May 24, 2012 - Dierks Bentley is an accomplished singer/songwriter accustomed to performing his unique blend of country meets bluegrass in packed houses across the country. The superstar recently stopped by CMT's Nashville studio to film a new episode of UNPLUGGED, debuting exclusively on CMT.com on Tuesday, May 29 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Bentley's set list includes his bluegrass spin on Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain," along with hits from his critically-acclaimed album HOME "5-1-5-0," "Am I the Only One," "Up on the Ridge" and "Home."

"I love breaking my songs back down to their original acoustic foundation," said Bentley about performing on the iconic series. "When I write these songs by myself or with friends, we just use acoustic guitars... so, it's fun to sometimes go back to just the simple groove and idea you had to begin with."

The episode will also air as a half-hour special on Palladia (Saturday, June 2 at 9 p.m. ET), CMT (Monday, June 25 at 10 a.m. ET/PT) and CMT PURE (Monday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT).
