Bentley records CD in NC, and you can watch
Monday, January 25, 2010
– Dierks Bentley will head to Asheville, N.C. next week to record his sixth Capitol Nashville studio album.
Bentley has spent the last four months writing hundreds of songs for the new project, and he'll once again team up with producer Jon Randall Stewart and recording engineer Gary Paczosa.
Look for a new single from Bentley in the spring with soon thereafter. Beginning Sun., Jan. 30, fans will be able to watch the entire recording experience from the studio through a live video feed 24 hours a day on www.dierks.com.
"I've been writing and re-writing and tweaking songs for the past four months to get ready for the studio," said Bentley. "I usually come home from the road and go right into the studio, so I've never put this much time into prepping and doing pre-production on songs. I learned from my experience recording 'Ridge' that getting out of Nashville and away from the business side of things can be really inspiring. I've got the best musicians in the world, and we're going to go hunker down for a few weeks and live and breathe this record. I thought it would be cool to let the fans be part of the whole experience, so we're going to let them watch as it all goes down."

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 ...
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.
