On November 11, 2012, Bell County got its first look at this guy with a funny first name from Arizona who played country and bluegrass. 

Dierks Bentley, along with Miranda Lambert and The Randy Rogers Band, brought their "Locked and Loaded" tour to the Bell County Expo Center.  This was during my time doing afternoons at US105 and part of my job that day was taking winners backstage and hanging out for a bit with Dierks.  I know, tough job, huh?

How would you like to hang out with Dierks?  You can make it happen during the Tropical Nights:Boots In The Sand event at the Hard Rock Riviera Hotel Maya in Mexico.  It sounds like a pretty cool all-inclusive vacation package for the country fan who wants to check off a couple of things on their bucket list. I've already checked the first two of these off my list.  You better catch up

Hang out with Dierks Bentley.  Check.

Have a brew with Billy Currington. Check

(On your list, these could be interchangeable with Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer)

Going to a tropical paradise & being in the middle of the greatest concert event in your life.  I'm ready to check this one off.  ARE YOU?
