For Bentley, King, it's "Worth a Shot"

Friday, May 13, 2022 – Six years after Elle King and Dierks Bentley had a number one hit with "Different for Girls," the paired for their new collaboration, "Worth A Shot."

The two sing of a relationship on the rocks and a whiskey-fueled reconciliation. The upbeat tune was first introduced at King's sold-out show at the Ryman Auditorium earlier this year as part of her headline Drunk And I Don't Wanna Go Home Tour, where Bentley joined her on stage to perform.

"Dierks took a chance and brought me into the country world. I couldn't make my own country record, which is my favorite album I've ever made, without including the person who gave me a seat at the table," said King. "To be honest, Dierks and I just have fun no matter what we do, especially singing and performing great songs. This song is all about trying to get back to the beginning of something, and so it's only right that we go back to where it all started for me."

"Worth A Shot" is the follow up King's big hit single "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)" with Miranda Lambert. The Grammy nominated, certified Platinum hit reached number one on both Billboard's Country Airplay and Mediabase/Country Aircheck Charts. King and Lambert will perform "Drunk" this Sunday at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards, where the song was named a finalist for Top Rock Song.

Following her headline Drunk And I Don't Wanna Go Home Tour, King is currently hitting the road with Chris Stapleton as part of his All American Roadshow Tour.

He's been recording for 20 years now. Yet Bentley has come this far with his integrity still intact. He's back with a strong, 14-song set that, like a good beverage, feels good ...
CD review - Black Dierks Bentley seems intent on expanding his musical boundaries, but he may have overreached too much in eschewing where he came from. That most evident by the dominating textured beats. Producer Ross Copperman and Bentley seem hell bent on injecting odd meters and sounds, sharp detours from past efforts. Unfortunately, the atmospheric beats muddy up the vocal delivery on "Freedom," a song that stretches far too long at almost four minutes. Bentley also channels U2 with its ...
CD review - Riser Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley. Bentley embraces current trends in country ...
