Dierks is introducing his sixth Capitol Nashville studio project with the rowdy sing-a-long party song “Am I The Only One,” shipping to radio today. Fans can stream the song this week through Dierks’ social networks and will be able to purchase through iTunes beginning March 29.
“We just kicked off the Jager Tour this past weekend, and the song is already killing it out there,” says Dierks. “The fans are singing the second and third choruses with fists in the air. I decided to stage dive Sat. night and by Sun. night in Pittsburgh the fans were crowd surfing before I even hit the stage. They haven’t been shy about letting me know that I’m not the ‘only one!’ We recorded a lot of fun, uptempo songs for the new record, so we’re going to be rocking the whole year.”
Written by Dierks, Jim Beavers and Jon Randall, the new song was recorded at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC, where Dierks and the other musicians lived and recorded 15 songs for the new project in only five days. Over 35,000 fans tuned in and streamed the recording process that Dierks made available to them through a 24 hour web cam.
