Each of Dierks Bentley’s previous six albums has had a unique sound reflecting his state of mind during the recording process. He will continue his story on February 25 when he releases his new album, Riser, a project grounded in “lyrical substance” that tells the story of the highs and lows he has experienced in recent years.

“I named the album Riser because the lyrics in that song perfectly articulate who I want to be, who I try to be,” he said. “There’s a lot of really intense material on this record, but there’s also a lighter side that is equally important in telling the story of the last two years of my life.

“When I first started writing for this album, I was in a place of grief over the loss of my dad, but over the course of the next 18 months, my wife and I had our son Knox, and I ended in a place of real joy and gratefulness,” he continued. “Both sides of that coin are what country music has always been about, and I hope that my fans can feel how much of myself I put into this project. It’s all out on the table, for sure.”

Dierks worked with producer Ross Copperman and executive producer Arturo Buenahora, Jr. They mixed old-school live recording techniques with the experimental nature of new technologies to create the project. The album features Dierks’ current Top 10 hit, “I Hold On.”
