Country music superstar Dierks Bentley is back on the road again in support of his ninth studio album The Mountain, with the 2019 Burning Man tour. He kicked off the winter leg of the 27-date tour in Canada, and has been wowing his audiences for the past year. Playing the 19,000-seat Scotia Saddledome in January marked a new peak for PK Sound, as the company served one of country music’s top acts in Calgary’s largest indoor arena.

Dierks BentleyPK Sound CEO and Chief Engineer Jeremy Bridge began building loudspeakers at home until he launched the loudspeaker manufacturing company in 2009. The Dierks Bentley show now serves served as a celebration of the company, as it expands its footprint into other music genres.

‘Historically, a large portion of our partner’s successes and our own have been in the client-driven specification of PK Sound products on some of the largest Electronic Dance Music events in North America,’ explains PK Sound Senior Business Development Executive, Darryl Ross. ‘Being able to partner with Dierks, however, has allowed us to expand into different genres, and show the strength and versatility of our Trinity Line Arrays for any kind of live sound application.’

Making full use of the three-dimensional wavefront technology used in PK Sound’s Trinity system, Dierks Bentley’s FOH and System Engineer James ‘Pugsley’ McDermott has unparalleled control over the vertical and horizontal polar directivity of the entire array. PK Sound’s Kontrol software makes adjusting the sound field even easier for the crew by granting remote access to each module’s internal functions, allowing each array to be flown straight and adjusted in the air. Once flown, Kontrol’s Auto-Array feature communicates with each module and automatically arranges modules into position in each array, removing the need for time-consuming manual arrangement.

Bentley’s Burning Man tour sails along in the wake of success brought on by The Mountain, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album to date. Influenced by the sounds of traditional bluegrass music, as well as a hefty dose of rock and roll, Bentley co-wrote ten of the album’s 13 tracks. The Mountain has garnered multiple nominations, including Album of the Year, from the Country Music Association.

While PK Sound has powered shows in world-class venues throughout North America, a concert at this level – and in its home town – was an unprecedented and opportunity to showcase their achivement to Calgary audiences.
