Dierks Bentley‘s new single, “Drunk On A Plane,” co-written by Dierks, Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, tells the story of a man left at the altar who is pushing through his pain by taking his Cancun honeymoon solo.

“I have never been jilted at the altar, but I have had a marriage proposal rejected….all you can do is pray there’s a good return policy for the ring, get drunk and carry on,” Dierks said. “Whether I have the band with me onstage or it’s just me and my guitar, the fans love this song, and they catch on to the choruses immediately. It’s a fun song, but when you really listen, there’s also an underlying lonesomeness which is what makes it different that a lot of the other uptempo songs I’ve put out.” Continue Reading

Watch Dierks Bentley’s “Bourbon In Kentucky” Music Video

Watch Dierks Bentley's "Bourbon In Kentucky" Music Video

Dierks Bentley has released a dark new video for his song “Bourbon In Kentucky.” Featuring Kacey Musgraves on background vocals, the song is about trying to drown the memory of an ex-lover with alcohol, but still being unable to forget her. In the video, Dierks is seen standing against a backdrop of flames, trapped in a car on the brink of drowning, and floating weightless in water.

“Bourbon In Kentucky” was the first song released from Dierks’ new Riser album, but didn’t take off the way he had hoped, prompting him to return to the studio. “It’s a pretty dark song,” he told Rolling Stone. “I’m not afraid of trying things. It’s a song I believe in, but it pushed the album release back about four months.”

Dierks Bentley’s new album, Riser, is now available. The project is his most personal to date and the first since the death of his father and the birth of his son. The album covers the myriad of emotions experienced during those two life-changing experiences as well as the struggles that come between balancing being a touring musician and a family man.

“Once I kind of knew what I was feeling with my dad and just all this stuff, I had a template to start from for writing and listening for stuff to fit that mold,” Dierks said. “I had this tour on the road which my true colors actually came out. And that feeling was able to be brought into the album…these fun songs that encapsulate who I am, as well as a father and a son who has lost his father. So, yeah, it’s [been] a pretty incredible journey the last two years. It’s been amazing.” Continue Reading

The 2014 Winter Olympics are in full swing and Dierks Bentley is in the Olympic Spirit! During a recent stop in Niagara Falls, Dierks and his band tried their hand at curling at the Niagara Falls Curling Club. Before hitting the ice, Dierks, a diehard hockey fan, proclaimed “Real mean don’t curl!”

Will Dierks be trading in his hockey stick for a broom? Watch the latest episode his webisode series, DBTV, below to find out! Continue Reading
