Bentley goes "Home" for new CD
Monday, September 26, 2011
– Dierks Bentley releases the anthemic Home
off his upcoming sixth Capitol Nashville album to country radio today.
Bentley penned the new track with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers.
"One of the best parts of being a traveling musician is getting to meet people from all over the country and hear about what's happening in their lives and their towns...the struggles and the joys," said Bentley. "They're the inspiration for this song. The lyrics speak to the challenges we've had as a country, but hopefully the song leaves you feeling inspired and optimistic."
Bentley's sixth Capitol Nashville studio project is scheduled for release in early 2012 and has already scored the number one hit Am I The Only One.
Bentley's five previous albums have sold more than five million copies, earned 10 Grammy nominations and spawned eight chart topping hits.
Bentley will kick off the first leg of his "Country & Cold Cans" tour on Oct. 6 in LaCrosse, Wisc. with 22 dates running through November.

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.
