Albany - One of country music's hottest up-and-coming stars is in Albany. Dierks Bentley is performing at the State Theater Thursday night.

He's best known for his hits "What was I thinkin'" and "How am I Doin'."

Bentley recently ended a tour with country music legend George Strait and says he's excited about playing for a more intimate group of fans.

"With George Strait, we we're playing arenas with 20,000 people. But, this is the kind of venue where me and my band have the most fun. Everyone is packed in front of the stage, it's really crowded, everyone's sweating while we play for a long time. This is our favorite type of venue, so this will be a great show," said Bentley.

Bentley is set to release a new album "Modern Day Drifter" May 10th . The 29 year-old was named one of country music's sexiest men by Country Music Television. And ladies he's single, but he says he doesn't have time to date right now.
