Country star DIERKS BENTLEY is opening a bar in his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Long Trip Alone hitmaker has teamed up with bosses at Riot Hospitality Group and El Hefe Super MACho Taqueria to launch Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row on 4 July (13).

The venue, a replica of a 1920s saloon, will feature over 40 different kinds of whiskey, beer and liquor on tap and a large performance space - and the singer can't wait for fans to check out his new space.

He says, "Opening a bar in my hometown is something I've always wanted to do. These guys have spent a lot of time and put a lot of thought into really cool details that will make it the perfect place to watch a game or listen to music or just get a few drinks with friends. I'm looking forward to helping break it in."
