& THE NIGHT SWEATS
It took Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats less than five years to become one of the most recognizable new forces in contemporary rock ’n’ roll. Since 2015, Rateliff has led his denim-clad, horn-flanked Night Sweats, supplying the zeal of a whiskey-chugging Pentecostal preacher to songs about this world’s shared woes. They’ve had hits, sure, but their combustible mix of soul and rock quickly cemented them as the rare generational band who balanced ecstatic live shows with engrossing and rich records. To wit, is there any other modern act capable of revving up stadium crowds for The Rolling Stones while also appearing on Saturday Night Live and CMT Crossroads and at NPR’s Tiny Desk in short order?
When Rateliff returned from his pandemic-truncated solo tour in March 2020, he struggled with the same question that vexed so many of us then—what now? Fortunately, he returned to his Colorado homestead and penned a set of songs that synthesized his introspection with his anthemic inclinations. The result is The Future, the third Night Sweats album but the first to capture this octet’s true depth and breadth. An instant classic of 11 songs, the album presents something more sustainable, interesting, and indeed open—a songwriter and band growing into bigger questions and sounds, into a future that allows them to remain recognizable but be so much more compelling than some denim-clad caricature.
The multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter “has one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes). Reaching a new creative high while "making music designed to challenge" (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of his current album THE MOUNTAIN’s (Capitol Records Nashville) 13 tracks, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed 17 career No. Ones, billions of digital streams, countless nominations from the ACMs, Billboard Music Awards and more while earning 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last siX albums. Bentley continues with his endeavors outside of the music industry by partnering with Flag & Anthem to create an eXclusive lifestyle collection, Desert Son, and with four Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row locations throughout the country.
