PHOENIX — WM Phoenix Open confirmed Grammy-nominated and CMA award-winning country music superstar Dierks Bentley has committed to perform at its four-night concert series at the 2024 Coors Light Birds Nest.
The concerts will happen on Feb. 7-10 during Phoenix Open week. Bentley, who is a Phoenix native, is set to take the stage on Thursday, Feb. 8. Rising county music start Mitchell Tenpenny and Canadian Country artist Meghan Patrick will join the stage that night.

Bentley came onto the country music scene in 2003 with his self-titled album which spaned hits “What Was I Thinkin” and “My Last Name.” He has won numerous awards and consistently topped the country music charts.
