Dierks Bentley goes for "Home" in February 2012

Monday, November 14, 2011 – Dierks Bentley announced today that his sixth Capitol Nashville studio album, "Home," will be out Feb. 7, 2012.

The upcoming album's anthemic title single was released to iTunes last week and hit the Top 10. Am I The Only One was the first single from the disc and became Bentley's eighth career number one.

Bentley will play a special album release show in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium on Feb. 2. Fans can purchase tickets beginning this Friday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. Central at the Ryman box office, on ryman.com and through all Ticketmaster locations.

"My home is in Nashville with my family, my home is on the road with our fans and my home is definitely in country music," said Bentley. "This album is more than a year's worth of writing, recording and testing out material on the road in front of our hard core fans. The end result is an album that runs through all the types of country songs and sounds I enjoy singing and playing. I can't wait to share it with the fans."

Bentley will perform Home on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this Thursday, Nov. 17 at 12:35 a.m. Eastern.

Bentley will wrap the first leg of his headlining Country & Cold Cans Tour this weekend with shows in Nampa, Idaho (Nov. 16), Bozeman, Mont. (Nov. 17), Rapid City, S.D. (Nov. 18) and Denver, (Nov. 19). The tour will pick up in February 2012 with dates already scheduled in Canada and Australia.

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.
