DIERKS PARTNERS WITH FUNNY OR DIE TO DEBUT HILARIOUS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR “DRUNK ON A PLANE”

Coming off opening weekend of the 2014 RISER Tour, Dierks Bentley is taking fans on a wild ride in the new music video for "Drunk On A Plane."  In collaboration with Will Ferrel and Adam McKay's Funny or Die, the comedy website debuted the mile-high video this morning making it the first time a country music video has appeared on the popular site.

Directed by Wes Edwards and filmed at Air Hollywood in Los Angeles last month, Bentley enlisted a quirky cast of characters that included comedians, actors, band members and friends to help nail his vision.

"We added some of this footage to the screens for tour, and I have a hard time not turning my back to the crowd to watch it myself…so many hilarious moments," said Bentley.  "There are a few subplots working underneath the main story that totally crack me up…if you watch it a couple times, you start to pick up on more funny details. Wes did an incredible job…again!"
