Dierks Bentley releases new single

Wednesday, September 10, 2008 – Dierks Bentley has a new single at radio, Feel That Fire, the first single from his upcoming Feb. 3, 2009 disc. Written with longtime producer/co-writer Brett Beavers and Brett and Brad Warren, the love song went to radio Monday.

"I think you get to a point where you recognize what attraction is all about," Bentley said. "It's not the obvious stuff, but more someone who can go toe-to-toe with you, it is about that girl who wants to be as alive as humanly possible, to feel everything, to take it to the hilt."

"To me, the best country music is distilling how life feels... sometimes good, sometimes too much, but always real," he said. "We have all these emotions inside us, driving us, pushing us to places we might not even realize we're going. Sometimes you figure it out, sometimes you just surrender to it. To me, though, it's all part of it - and the more you give yourself over to it, hopefully the better the songs turn out."

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 ...
