Bentley goes to the "Beach"
Friday, February 26, 2016
– Dierks Bentley released the video for "Somewhere On A Beach" today on Vevo.
The song is the lead single from his forthcoming eighth studio album "Black" (Capitol Records Nashville) and the fastest rising of his career.
Bentley once again teamed with director Wes Edwards on the streets and beaches of Puerto Morelos, Mexico, as a familiar character gets caught up in a whirlwind romance on a vacation gone wild. The duo has previously won both the ACM and CMA "Video Of The Year" Awards together.
"It took three days to shoot this video...we got so much great stuff all over this tiny little Mexican village outside of Cancun. It kills me to think about all the funny moments that we couldn't fit into this edit," said Bentley. "Our lead character Josh is an old friend that some fans may recognize. He had us doubled over laughing on the set the whole time....really funny dude and incredible actor. I hope everyone digs our take on this story, which may be a little unexpected."

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 ...
Dierks Bentley takes a left, turn, sort of, on his fifth studio disc. Bentley has built a solid reputation as a country artist with a slew of hits and catchy songs with edge. But here, Bentley goes bluegrass or at least 12 songs steeped in that sound. This is nothing new for Bentley, who previously has recorded bluegrass songs.
Much to his credit, Bentley does not come off as a dilettante, but, instead, someone who feels comfortable with the music from the lead-off title track to the closing sad ...
